Republicans Spending Big in Florida
Typically, the biggest spending in a presidential primary is in the early states of Iowa and New Hampshire - but on the Republican side, things aren't shaping up that way.
The Wall Street Journal reports that Florida is one of the biggest beneficiaries of Republican campaign spending.
We have already writtena about Florida being Rudy's firewall against defeat and Mark Halperin calling Florida the key to the GOP nomination.
There is another factor - at least for Thompson and Giuliani. And that is that both candidates have already all but acknowledged defeat in Iowa, where Mitt Romney's organization is firmly in control.
