Download Audio

After three different winners in three states, the GOP Presidential race moves to Florida this week with a new front runner, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

A new Rasmussen poll conducted last night shows former House Speaker Newt Gingrich leading in the state by nine percent, a dramatic change from just two weeks ago, when former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney had a seemingly insurmountable twenty two percent lead. Florida is the first big state to vote in the Presidential race, with 50 delegates at stake. Romney has a strong organization in the state, but there are two debates before the vote next Tuesday.
