GOP prez race could last months

ABC gives us the reasons why, starting with the fact that Florida, for now at least, is slated to lose half its delegates for jumping the GOP primary gun. Ditto for Arizona and Michigan a month from now. Add in that Super Tuesday isn't so big as it was in 2008, and has fewer winner-take-all states, and all four remaining candidates, plus Buddy Roemer, have reason to stick around a while.

One question: Will this open the door to "favorite son" candidates like Mitch  Daniels or Chris Christie, who may be able to create a brokered convention by running in their home states?
