Romney Making the Rounds

Romney is making the rounds. This from the Salt Lake Tribune:

Romney, a Mormon who led the successful 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, has visited Iowa -- the first caucus in the race for the nomination -- nine times so far exploring his potential presidential hopes. That's more than Sen. John McCain (1 visit), NY Gov. George Pataki (7 visits), and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (7 visits), and all other potential GOP 08ers, Hotline reports.

Romney also has visited neighboring New Hampshire six times, more than other wannabe Republican contenders, and he tied two other possible candidates for South Carolina visits -- four each.

As for Utah, Romney has visited the state four times, publicly that we know of, in the run up to the battle for the nomination. But conventional wisdom says Utah's probably in his column even if he never visits again.
