Romney Concedes South Carolina

After exit polls showed him coming in a close second to former House speaker Newt Gingrich in Saturday’s South Carolina primary, Mitt Romney said his attention is already on Florida. Surrounded by supporters chanting “We Need Mitt,” Romney said, “We’ve still got a long way to go and a lot of work to do.” Romney had more to say about President Obama than his opponent, but said both of them lacked the credentials needed to lead the country: “Our party also cannot be led to victory by someone who has never run a business and never run a state."
