Romney insisted at an airport news conference he believes he is still in a strong position to win the Republican nomination to face President Barack Obama in the November 6 election, but acknowledged that the path to victory is hard and that it is likely Santorum will win again.
“We think we can beat Senator Santorum where we compete head to head in an aggressive way. We obviously didn’t do that in Colorado or Minnesota to the extent that the other campaign did. But sure there will be places where he wins, and places where I win.”
“But there are no such things as coronation in presidential politics. It’s meant to be a long process. It’s not easy to get the nomination. It’s not easy to be elected president, and this is a testing approach and so far we’re doing pretty well,” he said.
