(WASHINGTON) -- While he will not weigh in on who he thinks should get the GOP nomination, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said on the “This Week” roundtable that it is growing more and more likely that it will be months before his party coalesces around a nominee and that there will likely be a contested Republican convention.
“We have had twice — three times really — Governor Romney looked like he was poised to begin coalescing, and each time he lost the next week, and now we’re at another juncture,” Barbour said.
Other GOP big hitters, such as Mike Huckabee, have said a brokered GOP convention would be a “train wreck” and a “disaster” for the party, but Barbour said today such a scenario is “not necessarily bad.”
“Whether or not we have an open convention is up to the primary voters who are left between now and there,” Barbour said. “If it is a convention where we get there with nobody having the vote, [that is] not necessarily all bad.”
