Ok, enough is enough. Rick Santorum it’s time to go back to Pennsylvania and to write a book that no one wants to read.
After a string of GOP primary losses, Santorum is trying to orchestrate Newt Gingrich’s removal from the race, which no one expects to happen.
Tonight on “The War Room” Politico’s Mike Allen will discuss the politics of denial and why Santorum, Gingrich and Paul insist on sticking around. They’ve got a better chance of landing a political talk show on a right wing news network than winning the GOP nomination.
Now we’ll turn our attention to Mitt Romney and his latest steps on the campaign trail in Pennsylvania. He’s clearly targeting President Obama and the general election, even if Rick Santorum thinks he’s relevant in his home state. In a political roundtable discussion, pollster John Whaley of Hart Research and Tom Del Beccaro, chairman of the California Republican Party, join us to map out what’s next in the battle for the White House.
Then it’s time for a question: What exactly are the issues Mitt Romney is running on? It’s getting tougher and tougher to claim the economy isn’t on the mend. Tonight inside “The War Room” we’ll be joined by University of Chicago and former White House economist Austan Goolsbee to talk about the improving jobs picture and why he opposed aspects of the Obama’s administration’s auto bailout.
We’ll also take a different take on the war on women with The HuffPost Teen columnist Laela Zaidi. She’s 16 years old, from Joplin, Missouri, and has a very different perspective on what it means to be a teenager in America and in the world, and how she wants to change it all.
Look for all this and more tonight on “The War Room” at 9 p.m. EST, 6 p.m. PST only on Current TV. If you have questions you want to ask our guests or thoughts on the show, tell us on Facebook or Twitter.
