Analysis: What's Ahead In The Florida Primary

Download Audio

All eyes are on Florida this week as voters there prepare to head to the polls in next Tuesday's primary. The candidates hit the campaign trail there Monday ahead of Monday night's debate in Tampa.

The campaigning comes after former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney was soundly trounced by former U.S. Newt Gingrich Saturday in South Carolina, making Florida’s contest in two weeks that much more important to the three top candidates: Romney, Gingrich and Rick Santorum, who have now won one contest each.

WBUR political analysts, Democrat Dan Payne and Republican Todd Domke, joined Morning Edition to talk about what's ahead in Florida.

This program aired on January 23, 2012.
