NBC and The NY Times have called it for John McCain:
“We showed the people of this country what a real comeback looks like,” McCain said as he savored his triumph. “We’re going to move on to Michigan and South Carolina and win the nomination.”
Watching MSNBC… Romney is speaking and gave a very classy congratulations to McCain. I give him credit for being very gracious about McCain… but he’s talking the exact trash we can expect from Republicans no matter who the Democratic contender is.
It’s too close to call for the Democratic race at this point… more to come.
Good gracious, I can’t believe the intro song for McCain. He’s thanking his supporters now. He deserves kudos for a big comeback. Nice speech from McCain including him giving credit to all the Democratic candidates for their participation in the process.
Speaking to his supporters, Mr. McCain said, “Tonight we sure showed them what a comeback looks like.”
His chief rival in New Hampshire, the former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney congratulated him on “running a first-class campaign.”
Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who came in third in the primary and was looking forward taking his campaign to other states, told supporters, “If there’s any sadness, it’s not where we finished, because frankly, we’re pretty happy about that.”
