Download Audio

With the ink barely dry on his decisive victory in Tuesday's Florida primary, GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney heads to Nevada Wednesday to prepare for this weekend's caucuses there.

Romney won Florida with 46 percent of the vote, well ahead of Newt Gingrich, who came in at 32 percent.

As he celebrated his win in Florida, he sent a message to the White House and the Obama campaign:

"In another era of American crisis, Thomas Payne is reported to have said, 'Lead, follow, or get out of the way.' Well, Mr. President, you were elected to lead. You chose to follow. And now it's time for you to get out of the way," Romney said.

WBUR political analysts, Democrat Dan Payne and Republican Todd Domke, joined Morning Edition Wednesday for a look at the campaign trail ahead.
