Please note these two items:
  • No GOP candidate has ever lost New Hampshire and Iowa and gone on to win the primary nomination.
  • No GOP candidate has ever won both of these states in a primary election.
With Romney's lead in Iowa dropping jaws across the political spectrum (one recent poll has him up on Rudy by 23% pts) does the Gregg endorsement seal the deal in New Hampshire?

First, Gregg is very respected in the New Hampshire GOP with an 82% approval rate among Republicans.

Second, the Gregg family has deep roots in New Hampshire. His father Hugh Gregg served as Governor in the 50s. Judd was elected to Congress in 1980 and served 4 terms before winning the race for governor in 1988 and then winning his current Senate seat in 1993. He has been re-elected twice now, most recently in 2004

Second, Gregg had previously indicated that he would not be endorsing anyone until the primary. Today, he said: "never thought I’d endorse a governor of Massachusetts for anything, but, I never though the Red Sox would win the World Series twice in my lifetime, either."

In short, these type of endorsements are seriously prized in the political world. And if the endorsement happens to be in New Hampshire...

One quick question: Gregg indicated that he has “tremendous respect for John McCain and although I don’t know Rudy Giuliani, I respect what he’s done.”

Did Rudy not even approach Gregg? Or meet with him?
