KREMER:  Well, I mean I am seeing a shift toward Perry and Gingrich.  I mean it's almost like the Perry campaign and the Gingrich campaign have put out an e-mail that said you need to lobby Tea Party Express, because I've been inundated since last week with messages from supporters, not the campaign, but from supporters.

But ultimately, the - the people are going to have to decide, John.  And it's going to be part of what Gloria was talking about, you know, electability.  But, you know, an individual has to make the decision, what's more important to them, electability or standing on principles and values?

KREMER:  Well, I will tell you that Tea Party Express, we will be endorsing by South Carolina.  And I believe that South Carolina is going to be a game-changer and going into Florida.  Those two states have two of the strongest Tea Party networks in the country.  And that's evident in, you know, the election of Governor Nikki Haley, even though I know she's endorsed Governor Romney, you know, with Goudy (ph), Tim Scott.
