Candidates Participate in Final Debate Before Florida Primary

Last night, the remaining GOP Presidential candidates gathered at Florida Atlantic University in their final debate before Tuesday’s primary election. Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul answered questions from NBC’s Tim Russert and Brian Williams along with the President and Editor in Chief of the St. Petersburg Times.

Overall, the debate was friendly and had virtually no attacks from one candidate to another. The major issue addressed was the economy and thoughts on the economic stimulus package that gained bi-partisan support this week in Congress. Romney and Giuliani announced their support for the bill but said it did not go far enough.

Latest polls that the election in Florida is still anyone’s game, but Romney and McCain are currently the leaders of the pack. Yet, as we saw on the Democratic side in New Hampshire, polls can prove to be very wrong in the end, as Clinton’s landslide was not predicted by a single poll.
