Romney Not Dead Yet

Feb 6, 2008 2:06pm

ABC News’ John Berman, Ursula Fahy and Matt Stuart Report: Mitt Romney, R-Mass., is still running for president. With words that did not thunder with confidence, Romney’s spokesman told reporters, "The governor’s statement from last night is still operative.  He is in this race until the convention."

Romney met with advisers for several hours in his Boston campaign office Wednesday morning.

Spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom said, "John McCain had a good night. That doesn’t mean Mitt Romney had a bad night."

Just after 1pm, Romney could be seen through his office window addressing a gathering inside.  One aide called it "a pep talk to staff."

Romney will speak at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Washington, D.C. on Thursday before returning to the campaign trail.

Some spin from advisers includes: "McCain is getting base resistance. In some states, Huck helped us by taking McCain votes."

Another comment: "We won one less state than McCain… and we have a lot more money." (This aide might have been off by a state or two)

Meanwhile, a UPS postal carrier delivered several boxes labeled as extra-large, navy-blue, "Romney for President" sweatshirts.
