Florida has played an important role in the last several presidential elections, and last night, it may have helped crown the Republican nominee and boosted Hillary Clinton.Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Mitt Romney faced off in a bitter battle over the last week. McCain managed to play up his strengths on national defense and his electability, and downplay his weakness on economic matters to score the victory. With 99% of the precincts reporting, McCain had 36% of the vote to Romney's 31%. McCain picked up 57 delegates in the winner-take-all primary, which pushed him ahead of Romney into the delegate lead.
