John McClain and Hillary Clinton Win the January 29th, 2008 Florida Presidential Primary

John McCain defeated the other Republican presidential candidates to win the Florida primary and in the process knocked Rudy Giuliani out of the race. Giuliani staked his candidacy on winning Florida and his defeat there means that he will drop out of the race soon. The Republican race is now looking like a two way race between John McCain and Mitt Romney with Super Tuesday less than a week away.

The Democratic National Committee stripped Florida of it’s delegates and as a result the candidates did not campaign in the sate. Hillary Clinton, the winner of Florida, is lobbying to have Florida’s delegates reinstated.

Rudy Giuliani’s unconventional campaign strategy was to skip the early states to focus on Florida. The strategy did not pay off and Giuliani did not win a single county in Florida. Expect him to drop out of the race and endorse McCain soon.
