Romney wins Florida in a landslide

All major networks are reporting a lopsided victory for Mitt Romney in the Florida state primary election.  Gingrich is in a distant 2nd with Rick Santorum and Ron Paul running 3rd and 4th respectively.  Dr. Paul largely skipped Florida due to the high cost of the media market there.

Although this should be a big boost to Gov. Romney it is likely that a significant portion of Florida's delegation will not be seated at the GOP convention.  Florida broke two party rules when it unilaterally moved its primary date forward and also refused to adopt proportional representation which the GOP requires of all primaries held before April 1.
