Decision Day For Republicans In Florida

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Fifty-seven delegates are at stake in Tuesday’s winner-take-all GOP primary in Florida.

In the finals hours before polls open, Mitt Romney and John McCain accused each other of being liberals, with Romney attacking McCain’s legislation curbing money in politics, his more forgiving view of illegal immigrants and his backing of an energy bill that Romney says would raise costs for consumers.

McCain called Romney a flip-flopper who raised taxes and imposed a big government mandate health care plan while he was governor of Massachusetts.

The latest Florida polls have McCain and Romney essentially tied, with Rudy Giuliani and Mike Huckabee also on the ballot.

Giuliani insists he can come from behind and win. He says the winner in Florida will win the GOP nomination.

Asked if a loss would end his campaign, Giuliani said: “Wednesday morning, we’ll make a decision.”
