The results of Florida’s winner-take-all Republican primary tonight will be defining, with the state’s 50 delegate prize up for grabs. The delegates are needed to ultimately nominate the national party’s candidate at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa this August.
Mitt Romney is heavily favored in tonight’s balloting in this final and possibly pivotal contest in this high-stakes month.
Although popular Florida Sen. Marco Rubio hasn’t endorsed a candidate or even predicted a winner, he told CNN today: “The winner of Florida is in all likelihood going to be the nominee of our party.”
Full of bravado, Newt Gingrich was reported to have said the race wouldn’t be decided until June or July — “unless Romney drops out earlier.”
Neither Ron Paul nor Rick Santorum are campaigning in the delegate rich state.
