Episode Summary

Wednesday, February 1, 2012
Mitt Romney beat Newt Gingrich by 14 percent last night in the Florida primary, but he has yet to win a majority of votes in in any state contest so far and Gingrich has vowed to continue his fight. The Florida vote was the first contest of the year where only registered Republicans could participate, with independents and crossover Democrats restricted from casting ballots in the primary. “The Florida primary is a very big one for Mitt Romney,” says David Bernstein, political writer for the Boston Phoenix who has covered Romney for years. “They knew he was not likely to win a lot of states in the south, some of the conservative Midwest, so Florida was really the one place where they thought they had to win, and with Florida, they feel like the rest of the states really add up in their favor from this point.” [Rush transcript to come.
