Give till it hurts

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney had hardly finished his victory speech after winning Michigan's primary Tuesday night when a fundraising e-mail went out to his supporters.

"Dear Friend," Romney's e-mail began, reminding supporters he's "still the candidate with the most votes of all Republicans, and the candidate who places first or second in each of the four caucuses and primaries so far."

Saying he is "very optimistic that we will win the Republican nomination and the presidency in November," Romney goes on to ask for "a contribution of $1,000, $500, $250, $100, $50, or any amount you can afford today" and suggesting they volunteer for his campaign

A crying shame

WARREN, Mich. (AP) — Confronted by a crying toddler on Tuesday, Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee quipped that the child must be for his rival Mitt Romney.

"He's not the happiest boy today," Huckabee said, smiling for a picture with the boy and his brother and sister. "I think he must be a Romney voter. Look at him. He's so sad."

Huckabee greeted their mother and other supporters outside a polling place in Michigan.
