Down to four candidates and across the line where a new entrant into the GOP nomination race is mathematically useless, the Florida primaries come to a close tonight.Mitt Romney came on strong last week and re-took the Florida lead in the polls. Exit polling is showing him strong as well .
Ron Paul didn’t bother to campaign in Florida and has elected himself out of the news for that two week cycle.
So now we just wait on results and see how Floridians viewed the candidates.
