Tonight's pool report:
Mitt Romney spoke to about 150 donors at the Biltmore Hotel where he was introduced by Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and former Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart, who praised the Republican presidential candidate as the “clear leader” the nation needs.
“Gosh,” Romney gushed before his 13-minute speech. “You really ought to be in Congress again. “The energy. The Cuban American energy and passion is so wonderful.”
Romney thanked the room for helping turn his fortunes in the Republican primary in January.
“You delivered the state that I had to win. You may recall, things were looking a little shaky coming into Florida,” Romney said.
