Although the odds of Howard Dean winning the Democratic nomination look long as voters cast their ballots in seven states Tuesday, some of Dean's allies in Congress continue to voice support for him.
"My guess is the race is far from over and it won't be wrapped up" in Tuesday’s round of contests, said Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J. ...
Rep. Zoe Lofgren of California, who is leading the Dean effort among Democratic House members, said Dean supporters are resisting the idea that the race for the nomination should be considered effectively over when television pundits say it is over. "That’s not the way it's going to work," Lofgren said late Monday in a telephone interview.
Lofgren warned against a precipitous rush to rally around the front-runner. "None of the other candidates has really received critical scrutiny," she contended. "If we end up selecting by a coronation a candidate who can't survive because of issues that later develop, that would be a disaster for the Democrats."
