He's raised more money than any other contender for the GOP presidential nomination, and still Mitt Romney trails John McCain and Rudy Giuliani by a fair piece in the national polls.

But with both McCain and Giuliani carrying baggage of their own, the Mormon ex-governor of Massachusetts is still very much in the race.

He's got the money and the hair and the track record of business success. Could he do it? His father tried and failed. His shifting positions and minority faith are a challenge.

This hour On Point: we get up to the minute with the dark horse presidential candidacy of Republican Mitt Romney.

Guests:

Karen Tumulty, national political correspondent for Time magazine and author of this week's cover story on Mitt Romney

Jim Nuzzo, Massachusetts Republican strategist

Blease Graham, political science professor and Southern politics expert at University of South Carolina

This program aired on May 14, 2007.
