Following tonight's triumph in Florida -- a winner-take-all state with 50 delegates -- Mitt Romney has boosted his GOP-leading delegate count to 87, according to the latest count by The Associated Press. After being shut out tonight, Newt Gingrich is now a distant second with 26 delegates.
Rick Santorum is third in the delegate count with 14, while Texas Congressman Ron Paul is fourth with four.
Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who dropped out of the race just before last month's South Carolina primary and endorsed Gingrich, has two delegates, according to the AP tally.
