The once-crowded field is set to grow thinner Wednesday when former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani – who went 0-7 in contests – drops out of the race and endorses McCain. That could help McCain in delegate-rich, more moderate states slated to vote next week, like California, New York and Illinois. But it also could give Romney fodder to claim that McCain isn’t the truest conservative in the race.

In the race for delegates to the national party convention, McCain (93) leads, followed by Romney (59), Huckabee (40), Paul (4) and Giuliani (1). Up next on Tuesday: 21 GOP contests offering 1,023 of the 1,191 delegates needed to secure the nomination. “In one week, we will have as close to a national primary as we’ve ever had in this country. I intend to win it and be the nominee of our party,” McCain declared.

“I think what will happen across the country is that conservatives will give a good thought to whether or not they want to hand the party’s nomination over to Senator McCain. He has not been their champion over the last several years,” Romney said in an interview Wednesday on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “I think there will be a movement within the Republican party to coalesce around a conservative candidate. Mike Huckabee, of course, might stay in, and that might be one of the reasons he does so – is to try and split that conservative vote.”

The sparks could start Wednesday night in California when the Republicans still in the race debate at Ronald Reagan’s presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif.
