McCain wins Florida

FLORIDA (KAIT) - CNN is projecting John McCain as the winner of the Florida Republican primary, with Mitt Romney in second place.  At 55% reporting, McCain is in a 36-32 lead over Romney.  The Florida race only matters for the first place winner, as it is a "winner take all" state.  That is, the winner gets all of the states 55 delegates.

This win will put John McCain in the lead for delegates going into Super Tuesday, where the majority of the nation's delegates will be decided for both parties.
