John McCain has won Florida by around 4% over Mitt Romney. It was a close race for a key state. Florida was a rare winner take all state so McCain got all 57 delegates and now leads the delegate count. It was also a closed primary so it showed he can win without the votes of Independents.
Rudy was a distant third on 15% and his campaign is over before it really started. A bit of a pity as I like the fact he was a Republican who was liberal on religious and moral type issues. But he should withdraw now and endorse McCain.
McCain is the only Republican candidate with a chance of beating Clinton or Obama. I hope he gets the nomination. Looking at the polls he is ahead by around 9% in both California with 173 delegates and New York with 101. But Georgia, Illinois, Missouri, Tennessee and Arizona have 308 delegates between them and little polling there. New York is winner takes all so very impt. McCain is on 32%, Rudy 22% and Romney 14% so if Rudy withdraws McCain should win easily.
I think we still have Maine to go before Super Duper Tuesday.No tag for this post.
