Hispanics In Focus As GOP Race Intensifies

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - More than a million Hispanic voters are the prize as Republican presidential rivals Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich resume campaigning after a feisty, final debate
before next week's Florida primary.

Romney was the aggressor Thursday night, pressing Gingrich to apologize for an ad labeling him as anti-immigrant. The former Massachusetts governor calls the idea "repulsive."

The rivals are set to deliver speeches Friday in Miami to the Hispanic Leadership Network. Florida has roughly 1.5 million Hispanic voters, who figure to play prominently in the presidential
contest.

Gingrich will address the Hispanic group late in the morning. Romney will follow around lunchtime.

Rick Santorum will not be on hand. While he's not giving up, the underfunded candidate is spending time Friday and Saturday with his family in Pennsylvania.
