The Invisible Primary, 7/15

Tracking the GOP race to 2012

An Associated Press writer says Mike Huckabee is turning into a GOP frontrunner for 2012; Huckabee advised Gov. Sarah Palin to remain in the GOP; he'll also travel to Kansas next week to raise monty for a GOP congressional candidate; Chris Cillizza says South Carolina is now up for grabs in the 2012 GOP primary; and Newt Gingrich will visit Gundersen Lutheran Health System in La Crosse, Wisconsin (about which he's written in The Washington Post) later this month to talk about health care.
