Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and Senator Hilary Clinton (D-NY) held off their opponents in the fight for Florida last evening. McCain narrowly defeated his top adversary, Governor Mitt Romney to take the top spot in the Sunshine State. This win solidified the Senator from Arizona as the frontrunner for the Republican nomination.
Senator Clinton won the hearts of Floridians, but not their delegates. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) stripped the state of its delegates for a violation of primary scheduling rules. Because of the DNC ruling Senator Clinton moves no closer to the Democratic nomination.
Former Senator John Edwards (D-NC) and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY) have both decided to pull out of the race for President of United States.
