"It was the first state in the mix that looks like America, and he won it by ten points," state Sen. Joseph Kyrillos, Romney’s state chairman in New Jersey, said of Romney’s performance in the ethnically diverse mid-western state.

Kyrillos maintains that Romney is the only candidate whose finances and organization have enabled to compete in all of the states so far. By contrast, "Huckabee and Rudy have cherry picked states in which to compete," Romney said of the campaigns of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

On Saturday, Romney can win Nevada’s primary, said Kyrillos. Meanwhile, he added, Huckabee and fellow Southerner former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson have to win in South Carolina in order to stay relevant.
