Romney Bowing Out of South Carolina?

Man, if we have anymore jumping ship from this one, the S.C. primaries could go from blast to bust. After weeks and weeks on the air in South Carolina, Romney is cutting air time on South Carolina TV in the ever-important week of the state's GOP primary.

Spokesman Kevin Madden declined to say whether their decision was based upon strategy or money.

"The strategic decisions on ad spending are made on a day-by-day basis," Madden said. "We are on the air in both South Carolina and Florida and are ready to extend those ad buys should we decide to."

Ten days before South Carolina and 20 before Florida, it's difficult to see why he'd go dark in either crucial state, unless he's decided to limit how much of his own cash he's using on what has so far been a disappointing campaign.
