John McCain pulled out a win against Mitt Romney in a squeaker of a Republican presidential primary contest in Florida Tuesday while Hillary Clinton handily won the largely ceremonial Democratic contest.
The primary was the last major opportunity for candidates to pick up momentum going into Super Tuesday, Feb. 5, when 24 states hold primaries and caucuses for both parties.
With 55 percent of precincts reporting, McCain had 35 percent and Romney 31 percent, followed by Rudy Giuliani with 15 percent, Mike Huckabee with 13 percent and Ron Paul with 3 percent.
I will say it again, I will not vote for John McCain. It looks like he will be the Republican nominee. I may have to skip one come November. I cannot bring myself to vote for someone who will bed down with the Dems at the drop of a hat. If this country is going to continue down the path to Socialism then let a Democrat lead the way.
It looks like tough times are ahead for the Republican party and this great country of ours. Hold on tight, it is going to be a bumpy ride.
I agree with Erick at Red State:
..Mitt Romney will limp on, but keep his stack of silver medals in 2nd place. Rudy is over. I'm still voting for Fred. John McCain, at least, I maintain is probably the most viable against Hillary or Obama.
Ladies and Gentlemen, let's prepare for John McCain as our nominee. As of tonight, the writing is on the wall.
And I want my party back, by the way.
