TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida’s presidential primary ballot will feature 13 Republican candidates and three Democratic ones.
Monday was the deadline for candidates to ask to have their name removed from the March primary ballot. Bobby Jindal, who suspended his presidential campaign in November, was the only candidate who asked to be dropped from the ballot.
Florida Republican voters will choose between these candidates: Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Lindsey Graham, Carly Fiorina, Jim Gilmore, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum and Donald Trump.
Democratic primary voters will have three Democrats to choose from during the primary: Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley and Bernie Sanders.
There could be a lot riding on the Republican primary. That’s because Republican Party of Florida officials voted to make the GOP primary a winner-take-all contest.
