Senator John McCain of Arizona edged out Gov. Mitt Romney to win Florida’s Republican primary Tuesday night, moving one step closer to the all important 24-state Super Tuesday contest on February 5th. The must win Florida campaign of Rudy Giuliani was well behind in third (followed by Huckabee), triggering the end of the Giuliani campaign. He graciously resigned, although many expect that he will endorse John McCain before the GOP frontrunners meet in California.
As for Democrats, they were not campaigning in Florida, but that didn’t stop the voters — they cast they votes handily for Senator Hillary Clinton. She easily grabbed half of all the Democrat votes leaving Senator Obama a distant second. Its an interesting primary season.
