    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Barreling out of Florida with money and momentum on his side, Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney said Wednesday that the bare-knuckled nomination fight thus far has toughened him up for contests to come.

  • Obama details broader housing plan

    FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) — President Barack Obama called on Congress Wednesday to make it easier for millions of additional homeowners to refinance their mortgages at lower interest rates even if they owe more than their homes are worth. He conceded that his administration's housing plans so far have not lived up to their promise.

    Calling the housing problem "massive in size and in scope," Obama detailed a proposal he outlined in his State of the Union speech last week, tackling an issue of vital concern in states key to his re-election.

  • Romney walks away with Florida primary

    TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Mitt Romney won a commanding victory in the Florida primary Tuesday night, rebounding from defeat and taking a significant step toward the Republican presidential nomination. Despite the setback, Newt Gingrich vowed to press on.

    Returns from 38 percent of Florida's precincts showed Romney with 48 percent of the vote, to 31 percent for Gingrich.

    Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum had 13 percent, and Texas Rep. Ron Paul 7 percent. Neither mounted a substantial effort in the state.

    The winner-take-all primary was worth 50 Republican National Convention delegates.
     

  • Let's move forward on Trinity Site

    I am convinced that having a big box store on the Trinity site would generate the most revenue for our public schools. The lease agreement that has been negotiated between the county and NADG allows for the development of the site without requiring any financial contribution from the county. This is beneficial to the county because other alternatives to a big box store would most likely have the county taking on the role of developer with the county making lease payments to the public schools directly.
