The Sun Shines on Romney in Florida
February 02, 2012

Governor Mitt Romney defeated Speaker Newt Gingrich in Tuesday’s Florida primary by more than 14 points. A key battleground state on the road to the White House, Florida represents a significant victory for the Romney campaign. With 46 states left, the next challenge is the Nevada Caucuses held on Saturday, Feb. 4.   

Mitt Romney should have a strong showing in Nevada. Situated next to Utah, where the former Massachusetts governor has strong political and donor support, Romney has never trailed in a Nevada poll.  In 2008, he won the state’s caucuses—and its 34 delegates—easily.
