Dr. Pitney on McCain, Paul

From Bennett Roth’s article in the Houston Chronicle:

Jack Pitney, an analyst at Claremont McKenna College in California, said Paul “can make a big splash in New Hampshire because it is a small state where money can go a long way.”

But in California, he said, Paul will have a hard time attracting establishment Republicans who polls show are not enamored with him because of his opposition to the Iraq war.

“His supporters are not the kind you would meet at the Lincoln Day dinner,” he said, referring to the events hosted by state Republican parties for activists.

From Dan Nowicki’s article in the Arizona Republic:

The New Hampshire triumph allows McCain to join the front of the GOP pack, but the pressure now is on the underfunded candidate “to raise a lot of money fast,” said John J. “Jack” Pitney Jr., a government professor at Claremont McKenna College in Southern California.
