Florida GOP Primary
Newt Gingrich came into the Florida Primary race with plenty of momentum after easily defeating Mitt Romney in South Carolina. But Gingrich has stumbled badly and it is projected by several news organizations that he will lose Florida’s primary.
After roughly a week of hard campaigning, election day has finally arrived in the Sunshine State.
Despite sagging poll numbers and a growing financial gap, Newt Gingrich and his supporters are not ready to throw in the towel just yet.
Mitt Romney came into Florida needing a big rebound in the Sunshine State after getting drubbed in South Carolina; and based on the latest Quinnipiac University poll, he’s poised to win Florida easily.
Based on early voting numbers statewide, it looks like Florida Republicans are coming out in droves to determine who will face President Barack Obama in November.
For the second time in as many days, a daily tracking poll from Public Policy Polling showed Mitt Romney maintaining his lead over his closest rival, Newt Gingrich.
Florida’s upcoming primary has the state in the national electoral spotlight once again and the spotlight is fixed tightly on South Florida’s Hispanic population, and while it’s just a sliver of the GOP electorate, it’s a powerful sliver.
In the final days of campaigning before Tuesday’s pivotal Florida primary, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich is calling rival Mitt Romney a “pro-abortion, pro-gun control, pro-tax increase liberal.”
There was a surprise announcement on the campaign trail in South Florida Saturday night when former presidential candidate Herman Cain officially endorsed Newt Gingrich for President.
Senator Marco Rubio has done his best to stay neutral during the early stages of the 2012 Republican primary, but he’s generating plenty of buzz and made an early appearance at the Hispanic Leadership Conference.
