Huckabee Now an Impossibility
After last night’s wins by John McCain, it is now mathematically impossible for Mike Huckabee to win the nomination.
Here is what John McCain’s campaign manager, Rick Davis, has to say:
“The results from tonight’s primary elections in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, DC, make it mathematically impossible for Governor Huckabee to secure the Republican nomination for president,” Davis wrote in the document, first obtained by Politico. “He now needs 950 delegates to secure the required 1,191. But in the remaining contests there are only 774 delegates available. He would need to win 123% of remaining delegates.”
