Sen. Clinton wins delegate-free primary in Florida

Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) is thanking Democratic voters in Florida for what she says is a "vote of confidence."It's a symbolic win, since no delegates will be awarded to Sen. Clinton. The national party took Florida's delegates away after the state decided to have its primary before Feb. 5.On the Republican side, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) picked up Florida's 57 delegates, with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney a close second and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani a distant third.Giuliani dropped out of the presidential race and will now endorse Sen. McCain. The third-place spot is Giuliani's best performance and after seven contests, he has one delegate. The former mayor was banking on a win in Florida to give him momentum for Super Tuesday on Feb. 5, where more than 1,000 delegates are at stake in states such as New York, New Jersey and California.
