Republican front-runner John McCain, 71, survived rough waters in the Potomac Primary on Tuesday or February 12, winning all electoral votes in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. So he laid an unshakeable foundation for the Republican nomination. In fact, he is coming close to clinching the nomination. To date, President George W. Bush also gave him consent.
For another Republican candidate, former Arkansas governor Mike Huchabee, it is very hard to take an upper hand again though he still has a certain sum of “capital” to play with. So the outcome in the race for the Republican primary nomination has, on the whole, have been settled.
