Michael Barone: 'If I Had To Bet $1,000, I’d Bet On Mitt Romney'

On the Sean Hannity Show yesterday, columnist Michael Barone was asked who he'd pick to win the Republican nomination for president.

“If I had to bet $1,000, I’d bet on Mitt Romney…I think he’s got the most plausible pathways to the nomination through our somewhat crazy nomination process.”

However, Berone hedged his bet, saying that he wouldn’t make that bet with confidence:

“…I would not spend the earnings from that bet just yet…he’s certainly not assured a victory.”

Barone’s prediction was made during a review of the Republican candidates seeking the nomination with guest host Mark Simone.
