In Arden Hills, an early -- and lonely -- Romney supporter
February 7, 2012 — 7:03pm
At Mounds View High School in Arden Hills, Greg Meyers arrived early for Minnesota’s political caucuses Tuesday and knew it would probably not be a big evening at the high school for his presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.
“I’m probably going to be the only Mitt guy,” said Meyers, the chair for the House District 50B Republicans. “For a lot of people, he’s not conservative enough.”
Meyers said he has had trouble convincing Republican friends that Romney, unlike the other Republican presidential candidates, may be the most electable of the candidates. “It’s not resonating right now, for me, with my circle of people,” he said.
But said Meyers: “If it’s not Mitt, I love Newt” Gingrich.
A Duluth native who just barely lost Virginia's GOP gubernatorial primary said that politicians have not gone far enough in condemning the left for violence during a rally of white nationalists in Charlottesville. "I think that the left is going to try to use this as an excuse to crack down on conservative free speech," said Corey Stewart. "I think they're going to try to use this as an excuse to remove more historical monuments."
