Romney Fever

Republicans have a fever, and the only prescription is more Mitt Romney!

Romney had an overwhelming win in the Illinois primary last night. If that wasn’t enough momentum, former Florida governor Jeb Bush then officially endorsed Romney, putting more establishment weight behind the GOP front-runner.

Regardless of what the establishment thinks, the gaffe-prone Romney still has a problem connecting to voters. Romney’s attempts to relate to the electorate come across as pandering. This is nothing new for Romney – I drew this cartoon about him during the 2008 campaign, and it still applies today…

We’ll see if the combination of a win in Illinois and the support of Jeb Bush will help Republicans coalesce around Romney. For now, he has a long way to go, according to our cartoonists…
