57 delegates are up for grabs in today’s Florida presidential primary. Candidates have been campaigning hard in the state for the past 10 days. This primary is the first where every candidate has spent significant time and resources clamoring for votes.
Final polls heading into today’s election show Senator John McCain with a 4 point lead over Governor Mitt Romney. Rudy Giuliani, Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul are also competing for votes. This state was expected to go strong for Giuliani, but in recent weeks he has fallen in the polls both in-state and nationally. In fact, there are rumors that he could withdraw his presidential bid as early as Wednesday. The candidate, however, believes he will have a strong showing and expects to continue his bid into the Super Tuesday states.
How will the election change after Florida’s primary? Will a clear front-runner emerge, or will we still have a contentious battle as February 5th approaches?
