The South Carolina primary awarded most of the state's 25 delegates to victor Newt Gingrich. Now comes Florida, in a much earlier spot this year and with many more delegates for the taking than the three previous states.

FOX News Radio's Eben Brown reports:

From America's Election Headquarters...

Florida muscles its way to an early primary spot this time around.

(Curry)"Whoever takes Florida, I believe, will go on to be our nominee."

Lenny Curry chairs Florida's Republican Party. It's the first closed primary, meaning only Republicans vote. What are they looking for in a candidate?

(Curry)"Who can best make the case for the free market, free enterprise and job creation? And that's what directly affects lives and families."

It's also the first winner-take-all state, and the most delegates yet are up for grabs... 50, twice the total of South Carolina.
