Times listed are Central Time:
11:30 a.m. West Va. caucus ended. Romney was supposed to win this because he was the only one with an organization there and it was a crummy little caucus. A defeat was said to mean he was in big trouble, and he was indeed defeated. Huckabee won, so Romney is probably going to have a disastrous night.
6 p.m. Georgia. Very close 3-way race. If McCain wins it should be with 34 – 39 percent. If he wins, it will be because Huckabee split the so called right wing vote!
7 p.m. Conn., Ill., Del. And New Jersey all close. They should go to McCain. If any don't, then Romney might have a glimmer of hope. If any of Missouri, Oklahoma or Tennessee went to McCain, he has the lock for the night. Mass. A must for Romney, but not bad for McCain if he loses.
7:30 p.m. Arkansas closes, a Huckabee shoe in. If not, he should sell his soul, if he hasn't already.
8:00 p.m. Minnesota, Montana and N.D. close. They are caucus states, and Romney must win them if he is to have a chance. He's probably dead already, however. Arizona and New York close, and they will be big for McCain.
9:00 p.m. Utah closes, and if Romney doesn't win there he's likely to get trapped in the next paper bag someone puts over his head. Colorado closes, Romney must win.
At 10 p.m. comes Calif. where Romney needs a huge win to stay alive.
