Willard wins Florida, cements candidacy

The Republican presidential nomination race came to Florida as a seemingly two-horse race. Has it now ensured that the race moves on with only one looking in good shape? In a rather one-sided affair, Willard Mitt Romney came away with an approximate 15 point victory over nearest challenger Newt Gingrich. I promise I'll stop constantly referring to him as Willard Mitt... I won't the names are just so silly unique.

Nobody else running cracked the 20 point mark in this crucial state's primary that operates a winner-take-all policy regarding delegates. In other words, delegates aren't allocated based upon a candidate's share of the vote, thus Romney takes all 50 of Florida's delegates to the RNC in Tampa. Democracy in action!
