Rudy's Last Stand: Will Florida Voters End Giuliani's Campaign?

Florida's Republicans are voting today and all signs point to a close race between Sen. John McCain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.

But the man who went all out for a Florida victory, Rudy Giuliani, appears to be stuck in third place, which probably means the end of his campaign.

As AltTulsa has noted previously, Rudy has steadily dropped in the polls in Florida and had dismal showings in early primary and caucus states. It's as if the more GOP voters know about Rudy and his ideas, the less they like him.

The same cannot be said of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who seems to have strong support among Oklahoma conservatives. Huckabee will probably finish behind Rudy is today's Florida election, but with continued evangelical support in the Southern states, Huck may be able to keep his campaign alive a while longer.
