    Romney Campaign: Our Opponents Are Ignoring The Basic Principles Of Math, Helping Obama

    Romney has more than 50 percent of all delegates awarded to date, and 40 percent of what he needs to clinch the nomination, campaign says. Message to other GOP candidates: Get out of our way, or you're helping Obama.

    Republican U.S. presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney speaks at his "Super Tuesday" primary election night rally in Boston, March 6, 2012.

    Rich Beeson, the Political Director of Mitt Romney's presidential campaign distributed a memo to the press this morning, saying the fact that the other candidates are remaining in the race makes it easier for President Barack Obama to win in the fall.

    "Super Tuesday dramatically reduced the likelihood that any of Governor Romney’s opponents can obtain the Republican nomination," Bleeson said. "As Governor Romney’s opponents attempt to ignore the basic principles of math, the only person’s odds of winning they are increasing are President Obama’s."

    Romney has won a majority of delegates awarded to date, according to his campaign's count, as well as 40 percent of the delegates required to win the nomination.

    The Romney campaign is confident that over the long haul, they are the only campaign capable of winning nationally, and expect to win the big-delegate states in April.
