Mitt Romney is NOT here today, after all

I’d reported here last week on a pair of Mitt Romney fundraisers — also posted here and here — scheduled for today in Oakville and Napa, but it turns out he’s in Iowa today instead.

Campaign spokeswoman Sarah Pompei said the Bay Area events were cancelled, though she knows not why. “The governor will definitely look forward to coming back to California sometime soon, hopefully,” she said.

If I had to guess, I’d say Romney’s in Iowa instead of California today because of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s rocket-like rise in the Iowa polls, which has deposed Romney as the longtime Republican frontrunner there. If he gets his butt kicked in Iowa, there may not be any California for him.
