Ron Paul is skipping the Florida primary

Ron Paul will spend only “limited money” in Florida because it’s a winner-take-all state with 50 delegates, National Journal reports.

“Paul is pursuing a long-term strategy in which he collects delegates in states that award them proportionally, where even a second- or third-place finish comes with some delegates. That strategy is unlikely to win Paul the nomination, but it could give him leverage at the 2012 Republican convention.”
