Romney Won Election in Florida

Mitt Romney won a landslide victory in yesterday's primary in Florida, which was recovered from the defeat of days ago and took a step toward the Republican presidential nomination.

Despite the overwhelming result against Newt Gingrich vowed to continue fighting. Romney, with a message of unity as if it were a candidate, said he was ready to "lead this party and our nation" and also to defeat President Barack Obama, the Democratic Party. Speaking to enthusiastic supporters, Romney launched a harsh attack on Obama and said the competitive race for the nomination of the Republican Party "does not divide us, we prepared" for the November general election. "Mr. President, you were elected to lead, you chose to follow, and now it's time to remove the road, "he said. The results of 79% of the state's districts Romney gave him 47% of the vote, against 32% of Gingrich. The former senator from Pennsylvania, Rick Santorum, was 13%, while the representative from Texas, Ron Paul, had 7%. Neither Santorum nor Paul launched a determined campaign in the state. Romney got a winning percentage of nearly 50% and a majority that would destroy the repeated assertion that Gingrich reject Romney voters outnumber those who support the cause of Gingrich himself. Despite the defeat, the former chairman of the federal lower house said: "We will play each place and we will win." As in the voting in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, about half the voters in the Florida primaries said the most important factor was to support a candidate who could beat Obama in November, according to early exit poll surveys, applied on behalf of The Associated Press and several television networks. As might be expected in a state with an unemployment rate above 10%, approximately two thirds of voters said the economy was their main concern. Nearly nine in 10 said they fell behind or remained the same. And half said the evictions have been a serious problem in their communities. The primary does not distribute delegates among the leading candidates, but all 50 assigned to the winner, the Republican National Convention. That number is by far the largest of any state primary so far. Romney now has a total of 87 delegates compared to Gingrich, 26, 14 Paul Santorum and four. To achieve the 1144 delegates needed candidacy. But the prize was a precious political momentum for the struggle to be the rival of President Obama in the November elections. Romney seemed to have it in the bag three weeks ago when he won the primaries in New Hampshire, but Gingrich ousted him 11 days later, after winning South Carolina. Now that factor returns with the former governor of Massachusetts, after a recovery 10 days with a shift to more aggressive tactics, coupled with an efficient use of its overwhelming financial advantage to whip Gingrich on TV ads during a campaign of 10 days. Gingrich dismissed any possibility of giving up. "We will play each place" , said in front of a banner that read: "Missing 46 states." "It is now clear that this will be a two-person contest between a conservative leader, Newt Gingrich, and Massachusetts moderate," he said. Santorum disagreed. "Gingrich had his chance ... a victory in South Carolina and could not sustain it," Santorum said in Nevada. He also said that voters "look and a conservative and an alternative to Mitt Romney."
