Jan. 31 - U.S. TV networks project Mitt Romney wins Florida Republican presidential primary. Sophia Soo reports.
Mitt Romney scores another win in the Republican race for the White House with U.S. networks projecting that the former Massachusetts governor won the Florida primary. Florida is by far the largest state to hold a primary this year and Romney's victory is expected to give him a big boost in the state-by-state battle to decide who will face Democratic U.S. President Barack Obama in the November election. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, who was riding high just 10 days ago after an upset win in South Carolina's primary, came in second. The fight could go on at least until "Super Tuesday" on March 6, when Gingrich could launch a concerted campaign for the several southern states that will be up for grabs. Sophia Soo, Reuters
