Florida Primary Election Results: Twitter Reacts To The GOP Primary In The Sunshine State

Posted: Updated:

After a fierce battle in the Sunshine State over the past week, Florida's Republican primary has arrived. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney led the Republican presidential field going into election day, ahead of top rival Newt Gingrich, who has struggled to maintain the momentum he gained from his upset win in South Carolina.

Florida is much more populous and diverse than the previous caucus and primary states, and Tuesday's contest will be closely watched. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio predicted that the winner of Florida will seal up the GOP nomination.

As the results come in, experts and voters are buzzing on the Twittersphere. We're putting together a snapshot of what people are talking about on Twitter, and we'll update it throughout the night.

UPDATE: Mitt Romney was projected the winner of Tuesday's presidential primary election in Florida.
