In Mo’Kelly’s most recent conversation with the BBC posted here, he accurately
foretold the time of the Rick Perry presidential announcement (which was speculated but not guaranteed). Also indicated that Perry’s announcement would but him likely as the #3 candidate in the GOP nomination race behind presumed front-runner Mitt Romney and Michele Bachmann.
In addition, Mo’Kelly correctly surmised that Bachmann’s debate performance would resonate with Tea Party voters (which propelled her to her Straw Poll victory).
Listen to the commentary again and see Mo’Kelly work his magic!
After a busy weekend in Iowa and South Carolina, the Republican presidential race moves forward with what looks to be a three-way contest among upstart Michele Bachmann, newcomer Rick Perry and perceived frontrunner Mitt Romney.
Bachmann, a U.S. House member from Minnesota, seeks momentum after winning the Iowa GOP straw poll — a prelimimary contest that knocked former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty out of the race after a disappointing third place finish.
Meanwhile, the Republican race got a new and potentially formidable candidate in Perry, the Texas governor who announced his bid Saturday before a conservative group in South Carolina.
At some point, both Bachmann and Perry figure to go after Romney, whose campaign war chest make him the frontrunner at this point.
“We’ve got a three-person race now,” said Stuart Rothenberg, publisher of a non-partisan political report. “Romney, Perry and Bachmann.”
