Martin’s news conference will issue a challenge to “conservatives” to “get real” about defeating President Barack Obama; Martin claims the CPAC convention in
“We have some hard hitting ads that are going to start airing in
“President’s Day, the 21st, the Contoocook Valley Republican Committee has invited me to deliver a ‘Reaganesque’ presidential campaign speech in
“Why am I the big winner coming out of CPAC? Because I am the only Republican presidential candidate with a coherent media strategy. In fact, I’m the only Republican presidential with any strategy at all. My potential opponents are all ‘studying’ whether they are even capable of filling Barack Obama’s shoes.
