No Challenge Upsets Some


Some of Mitt Romney’s top backers in Illinois are said to be privately upset that his campaign decided not to challenge opponent Rick Santorum’s petitions for next week’s primary a decision that could give Santorum an opening to pick up dozens of delegates here. 

 

Santorum did not submit enough valid signatures to get his delegates on the ballot in 10 of the state’s 18 congressional districts… but Romney’s state chairman, State Treasurer Dan Rutherford, made a deal with the campaigns of the other GOP candidates not to challenge each other’s petitions. 

 

Rutherford calls that a peace-making move designed to restore party unity after a bruising primary.  But other top Republicans, speaking anonymously to the BuzzFeed website, says that move was more about helping Rutherford’s future political ambitions, and was not in Romney’s best interest.
