As for Nevada, it's the death knell of Edwards' campaign. He worked the state hard, ran advertisements, courted labor and . . . was ignored. Getting less than 5% in the state just shows that most Democrats aren't willing to throw away a good vote on him in an otherwise tight contest.
Edwards may yet stick around, just to see if he has enough delegates to be a broker in a tight race, but we doubt it will be that close.
On the other side, Romney, as expected, pulled out a strong win. It will be interesting to see if he sweeps all the delegates. Romney is not stupid--he realizes this is a delegate slog and he's the only one contesting every state. In a close fight, those Wyoming and Nevada delegates the Mainstream Media is ignoring may tip the scale.
Meanwhile, Giuliani has to wonder about his strategy--in a state all the other candidates (except Romney) ignored, he still placed last among them, at a paltry 4%. That's not good. Shows the wisdom of taking a Florida vacation when everyone else is working.
