But but governor good to have you.
Would make what's going on with Republicans.
Well all of that tonight the good night for all for their candidates on the GOP side you know they're all -- being strengthened by the -- -- but it knew in his own home state those who know him best.
Having chosen him -- winner tonight and Santorum doing well in some of those southern states to -- then.
-- -- -- that's predicted doing well in the more moderate purple states.
I and Ron Paul course having his strong consistent supporter show what to sell yes problem and of course and -- of the at concession or victory speeches at the end and our does proud that -- -- in the arena and that they're willing to serve and you should be happy about and I like.
This well as you know governor they're not all happy they're concerned that this might get to be like a 1976.
-- convention as you.
Remember very well governor.
Gerald Ford -- that went out and at a very divisive convention -- Ronald Reagan darn near got nominated but.
It was close to it but no victory and Republicans went on to defeat that year against Jimmy Carter.
-- what do you think happens it is that argument.
Real that the longer this drags on the more -- will be for Republicans.
To win in November.
Yes you point out dumb as I know so well back then.
In those Jimmy Carter days like thinkers -- sixth graders from great song during a relief well what happened -- knowing history.
No we -- And the contention back then and we do see some of that today but -- no I think that the competition.
Strengthens all the candidates the process should continue.
I still wanna hear more debate I want more ideas I want work contract between any of the four on the GOP ticket their ideas their solutions verses.
Obama's failed socialist programs and policies and politics.
Who best out of the four running on the GOP side.
Can't starkly contrast their ideas against Obama as we need to still hear more of that I don't think it's a bad -- Fairly or not the one problem here against all the cancer particularly the front runner right now governor is that they don't -- a great deal of excitement and passion.
Even I think your detractors would say you do that and then some.
Do you think that's what's missing here that is just no verve.
No zipped so these guys and that's what sort of.
There will be that.
Zip city dude got after the nominee is chosen IE gearing -- there will be that.
-- that enthusiasm but to be brutally honest and I say this with all due respect to governor Romney who obviously the front runner because he has more delegates than anybody else at this point.
He's not garnering a lot of that enthusiasm right now and a lot of it is because people are looking at -- this.
Well you know he's got the big war chest -- he's got the money in the organization.
But we don't want to just come down to heat who has the most money the financial advantage in the primary because no GOP here we'll have the financially and it -- Be all right general you could -- -- sorry mean in erupted them but we're getting word now that.
Rick Santorum is -- -- another when denied in North Dakota how does he look in your state.
-- interesting up here in Alaska there's a very strong libertarian streak appear so Ron Paul will have a good showing tonight.
Our Rick Santorum he'll do well because this is and the rest of the red states when it comes to -- social issues and that would -- -- Broken -- again about a lot of that.
I knew you were gonna ask me that -- I am just the poorest.
-- politicians sounding confident.
It's tough for me to spin out of a question like that when it comes from a fox reporter the come from another reporter can spin out of it but since it came from you.
I tell you I want don't like a politician and I will tell you who I voted for tonight.
I considered who can best.
Bust through the -- Leno bomber rhetoric that we heard more of today in Obama's.
Press conference talking about another insolvent an unconstitutional.
Bail out that.
That debt they have no funds -- to finance.
Another and of the program that he wants to kind of forced down our -- who can be asked bust through these ideas of America.
And never taking steps toward energy independence when we have the natural resource is hearing we can do it.
-- -- -- Best -- that radical left kinda different ticket dispensation.
In and desire to.
To miss treat those who are defense -- I've missed treat those who.
That perhaps have some disadvantages by -- them more.
And be -- into government.
Who -- can contrast themselves from back.
-- who best could do that my personal opinion is the cheerful one.
Is Newt Gingrich I have appreciated.
I have appreciated what he he has stood for stood boldly -- -- the underdog in in many of these primary races in these caucuses and -- respected what do you stood for I cast my.
A lot care what we have is not a primary basically private pockets -- that presidential preference poll run my preference tonight was.
For the cheerful one.
All right so you went for Newt Gingrich -- followed by -- actually some months governor.
Your husband right he was an early backer of -- Newt Gingrich did he convince you or was this.
Use outlook I've looked and -- all of these guys.
-- -- -- Knew just whom I chose appear in Alaska to best represent ideas that many Alaskan want to see ads that that Kirk heard.
Candidate got it in this area it that's the right kept my before.
You don't tied to even vote in that in that -- got presidential preference poll today he's an independent -- about 70% of Alaska's aren't registered and in either one of the party so they can't participate in a process like that so -- Talk opinion has been that a new -- is as strong candidate to he had done -- best as -- -- contrast himself against.
And the failed policies of that radical -- to -- -- Barack Obama represented just.
What would happen to our country Barack Obama got in for four more years he would not be constrained.
By any threat to but obviously not being reelected any constraint.
Within the constitution he's RE chuck did -- hear he ignores that global but he -- powerful are higher that's.
-- very headline governor it's a big deal -- as you know that the -- he ran on the ticket four more years ago John McCain big backer Mitt Romney.
Says is -- -- nomination is inevitable.
You -- company and go to -- king ranch.
It's a big deal.
I don't part company I don't part company with Senator John McCain as we together want to see Barack Obama defeated at the ballot they -- hundreds -- -- -- -- -- we -- a new -- street would do a better job they're doing that.
I believe that up here in Alaska having -- asked today via -- ballot.
Who would be your preference your preferred candidate for president tonight I said.
Yes and Senator John McCain who might have just.
Romney's bandwagon more power to you what that's the beauty of competition to.
That is the beauty of being eyed at GOP participant we're about to -- all where we're just gonna back -- not debate ideas and not -- -- he duke it out.
And can be like a bunch -- liberals who kind of does go with the flow like dead fish go with the flow.
With the must -- -- that'd been chosen by the elite we're not I and the GOP at least I'm not.
Great respect for Senator John McCain and -- Romney is the nominee I hope I get to stand side by side with John McCain whom I do respect and I -- for serving our country not terribly out of -- side by side with him.
In supporting Romney if he's our nominee.
