Mitt Romney and
John McCain favorite in Florida
The Florida Republican
primaries will be a battle between John McCain and Mitt Romney,
say the odds makers.
Florida Republican primary is tomorrow (Tuesday) and two big
favorites will enter the scene - odds makers have John McCain
and Mitt Romney locked in a tight race for the state's
delegates. And although most of the polls show John McCain
leading by a few percentage points, the odds makers beg to
differ. At the online sportsbook
Bodog Sports, Mitt Romney is
the undisputed favorite, locked the odds of 2/5 to win the
Republican Florida primary, followed by John McCain, who is
listed with odds 1/1.
The barrage of attacks between Mitt Romney
and John McCain continue, this time in Florida the nuance is
"liberal". Romney is accusing McCain on a climate-change bill
that his GOP rival has supported with Democratic Sen. Joe
Lieberman, saying the legislation will result in a tax increase,
as well as the Arizona senator’s role in campaign finance bill
and the failed immigration reform bills. John McCain responded
by calling Romney's campaign a "wholesale deception of voters"
and accused Romney of flip-flopping.
All the bickering among the top Republicans
in Clinton-Obama style could help the other GOP top-dog, Mike
Huckabee, who is trailing behind his Republican rivals in the
polls and on the betting sheets, Huckabee holding odds to win
the Florida primary at 20/1. And let's not forget about Rudy
Giuliani, who, after an awful start, is banking heavily on
Florida, which is a must win for the former New York City mayor.
Bodog Sports, the odds on
Giuliani are currently sitting at 11/10.
