Huckabee Out, Hillary Back, Paul Holds

I am running short of time this morning but the bottom line is, Mike Huckabee has dropped out of the race after losing Texas to John McCain. It seems like the GOP base wants the race to be over.

Hillary won in Rhode Island, Ohio, and Texas. Obama won only vote-poor Vermont. Her margin in Ohio was particularly strong. Controversy remains in Texas, where team Hillary fears that her enemies will use caucus procedures to undo her close electoral victory there by assigning delegates out of proportion to the vote totals.

Ron Paul has not dropped out of the race, but his focus of late had been holding onto his congressional seat rather than the Presidential nomination. Many high-ranking republicans had been irritated by Paul's actions, and this encouraged someone to jump into the primary against him. Still, Paul retained his Congressional seat with a 2-1 win over his primary challenger yesterday.

Mark,

Why wouldn't Paul drop out? There is NO doubt McCain has it in the bag.
In Texas last night Paul finished third out of three candidates. Thats not saying much considering its Pauls home state. Right?
