David Corn and Democratic strategist Tad Devine joined Al Sharpton on MSNBC’s PoliticsNation to discuss what Mitt Romney’s narrow victories in Michigan and Arizona say about his chances on Super Tuesday. The strain of the campaign seemed to show in Romney’s victory speech: “We didn’t win by a lot, but we won by enough, and that’s all that counts,” he said before urging supporters to donate to his campaign. As the GOP primary drags on, will Romney ever be able to gain a definitive edge over the other candidates?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
