So it’s on to Florida.
The Florida GOP primary electorate is more moderate than South Carolina’s. But polls have had various not-Romneys leading there before they flamed out. So it’s winnable for Newt.
But Florida is an expensive state, where TV advertising makes the difference. And Romney has already been up on the air heavily, building a solid base vote.
Whoever wins Florida will likely be the nominee. So we’ll have to wait until January 31st for the next chapter in this most exciting of primary campaigns.
