Not long after the Florida 2012 primary results were projected, each of the Republican presidential candidates delivered speeches to their supporters and the nation.

Mitt Romney, the winner of Tuesday's primary, focused his victory speech on the general election, attacking President Barack Obama on the economy.

Newt Gingrich, despite a disappointing loss in Florida, delivered a confident speech to supporters, even outlining what he would do on his first day in the Oval Office. Rick Santorum and Ron Paul, finishing in third and fourth place, also pledged to continue on their campaigns.

Celebrating a huge win in Florida's primary contest Tuesday, Mitt Romney turned his focus on attacking President Obama in his victory speech. "My leadership will end the Obama era and begin a new era of American prosperity," Romney told the crowd. "President Obama's idea of a free economy is to send your money to his friends." Romney did take a small dig at his fellow GOP presidential candidates, saying he will help restore the economy because "unlike the other people running for president, I know how."
