McCain hanging on to slim advantage in Florida

With 47 percent of the vote counted, John McCain continues to hold on to a slim three-point advantage, 35 to 32 percent, over Mitt Romney in the Florida Republican primary.
Rudy Giuliani, who had counted on a win in Florida, is a distant third with 15 percent, barely ahead of Mike Huckabee, who has 13 percent. Ron Paul has three percent for fifth place.
Huckabee, who just spoke from Missouri, indicates he will concentrate on a number of states in the south and the midwest, many of which he is leading in the polls or at least doing well in them.
Giuliani is expected to drop out of the race.
