Channel 5 in Boston is reporting that Jane Swift will bow out of the MA gubernatorial race, leaving Mitt Romney the presumptive GOP nominee. That's very good news. Romney's from a political family, has run in MA before, and comes off of a by all accounts stellar performance running the Olympics. That said, it's awfully hard to see him actually holding MA for the GOP. If he and Simon manage to run competitive races into the fall, be prepared for a really shocking mid-term election. If they fall behind by the summer, we'd expect classic form to hold and the GOP to have fairly bad midterm losses. Posted by Orrin Judd at March 19, 2002 2:35 PM
