Mitt Romney's Florida Surprise

Mitt Romney will pick up the ultimate Cuban-American endorsement trifecta Tuesday in South Florida: The support of U.S. Reps. Ileana Ros Lehtinen and Mario Diaz-Balart, and his brother, former Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart.

The endorsements of the Miami Cuban-American leaders is a leading indicator that Romney is making a big push in Florida for one of its most crucial voting blocs in the state's Republican primary, scheduled for Jan. 31.

“It’s a major boost for any candidate when the three of them get together and move in one direction,” said Carlos Curbelo, a Miami-Dade School Board member who has worked for the Diaz-Balart brothers.

“They represent this community,” he said. “In Miami-Dade, their support is crucial.”

This is one of Mitt's biggest endorsements in Florida. If he wins the Cuban support at the same level as McCain did last time. It could significantly make it difficult for anyone else to win FLorida. Good Post!

and if Mitt Romney wins Flrida, after winning New Hampshire and havig got the second o third place in Iowa and South Carolina, his possibilities to be the nominee are to increase a lot.
