With 74% of precincts reporting, the NY Times has called the Florida Republican primary for John McCain by a 36-31% margin over Mitt Romney.
Rudy Guiliani’s Florida firewall was hacked. He managed to get only 15% of the vote, a sure sign that his campaign is coming to an end. The thinking here in Texas is that McCain will benefit most from his inevitable resignation owing to his – and Rudy’s – more centrist positions on social issues.
Mike Huckabee finished 4th with 13%, making strong performances on Tuesday a must for him. Will he be a possible vice-presidential pick? It seems to me that he would be more likely to accept the position than any of the Republicans still in the race for president.
