A big week for the Republican presidential candidates four contests going on this week.
And our -- Doug Luzader right now is live in Washington with the very latest on those -- -- good morning with these guys are going to be all over the map this week -- they try to.
Add to their delegate counts on their way eventually to Super Tuesday.
And that maintain the integrity of the garments so those older persons that.
Rick Santorum tours the factory in Minnesota that makes is now signature sweater -- hoping to keep his candidacy alive.
It'll be a busy week for Santorum Mitt Romney Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.
Even the math is intimidating for contest that will spread -- -- from the west and Colorado to the far northeast in Maine.
This is not the first time you gave me your vote of confidence in this time I got to take it to the White House.
Romney won big on Saturday picking up the Nevada caucuses.
An expected victory but one that he hopes adds to an air of inevitability -- you're pretty big retreats on has to make it through what could be eight Tulsa February.
And I hope by the time we have two Super Tuesday.
The will -- made the case that a genuine conservative.
Is -- dramatically better choice to defeat Barack Obama does somebody who's in many ways frankly not very distinguishable from a President Obama.
And as for President Obama that he made his case during a -- Super Bowl interview on NBC.
That I deserve a second term but we're not done look when you and I sat down we were losing 750000.
Jobs a month.
In fact we've found out just a few days before we sat down that we have lost that -- 750000.
Jobs now we're creating 250000.
And those numbers are going to be key moving forward with the White House hoping that those positive.
Unemployment numbers we saw the into the -- last week.
Are are part of a larger trend that will bring the unemployment rate down closer to 8% maybe below that by Election Day we'll see.
-- -- all right -- was later live in Washington thank you.
And let's introduce our panelists right now are right next to me we have Basil cynical and die he is the founder of Basil -- associate thank you so much for joining here.
And next to him -- -- to go strategist president of the American civics exchange and you can find him at suitably flip.
Dot com thank you both for joining us is.
All right so.
Up other Republican candidates at this point are still saying they're all planning on sticking it out.
There under a lot of pressure to get out of the race and some of those who are.
I don't needing to Newt Gingrich is a super pacs -- helping to support his campaign.
Are being pressured now to turn off -- -- it.
Is the -- one of the papers.
So that Gingrich sort of dies out and that everyone can focus on Romney flip.
Is that what these other candidates should do at this point -- should they stick it up.
I think the writing is on the wall for them so in terms of their actual presidential prospects seems like they ought to throw in the towel.
I think both Gingrich and -- feel that there is still.
If this is diminishing still real possibility that Romney blows up in that whichever of them this is better position to capitalize on.
Non Romney conservative.
Alternative strategy might still stand a chance santorum's doing well actually -- Romney -- in both Minnesota and and Missouri I think.
It is hoping that he might recapture from Gingrich that that.
As there is Romney continues to -- wins in particular nobody saw strong Tea Party supporters strong conservatives also going with large for -- for for Romney does appear that.
Not just the moderates the establishment -- but even strong conservatives are beginning to coalesce around Romney but still -- the other candidates probably have enough money in the bank and enough.
At least one or two each contests in the near future than the figure that there's little downside -- sticking it out another few weeks.
