Well, Super Tuesday is only a few hours old, but already my favorite sneak attack has happened, courtesy of the McCain campaign. According to Christianity Today.com, McCain asked his West Virginia supporters to switch their vote to Huckabee after the first round of caucusing, selling Mitt Romney out to dry.
Huckabee is almost a natural fit for West Virginia, given that 44 percent of the state supposedly identifies as evangelical. But Romney made a significant play there in the past few days, hoping to pull together a West Virginia, Georgia, Utah and California win. (I bet that’s the first time those states were lumped together!)
Smart move by McCain. Bad luck for Romney. Huckabee, ever now the token candidate, gets a state.
