A Nevada Tea Party Leader Hopes For Florida Surprise

Turn on the news, and Mitt Romney’s solar-powered surge in Florida is everywhere, with big crowds flocking to an energized candidate who’s comfortably leading his closest rival in the polls by as many as 14 points. But at least one Nevada Tea Party leader isn’t totally buying it.

Vicki Dooling, a prominent Tea Party organizer here, said she and many of her peers are hoping against hope for a South Carolina miracle: a late-in-the-game surge by Newt Gingrich (or anyone else, really) that serves to slow down Romney’s march to the nomination. Call it Tea Party skepticism or just wishful thinking, but Dooling isn’t so sure that Romney will win Florida in a blowout.

“Why do we have to listen to that? Is it true?” said Dooling. “I mean, it makes me wonder sometimes. I don’t know if it’s true or not, or if it’s just being put out by Mitt Romney.”
