You bet Mitt muscle will overpower the Newt!
William Hill now make Mitt Romney 1/25 favourite (stake 25 units to make profit of 1 unit) to be the Republican candidate to take on Barack Obama in the race to the White House following his victory in Florida. 'This result seems to kill off the Gingrich challenge and we would be extremely surprised if Romney does not go on to become the candidate' said William Hill spokesman Graham Sharpe.
And Hills have also shortened the odds for Romney to become President, from 6/4 to 5/4 following his win. 'It is a two horse race, but although Romney is gathering momentum he still has something to make up on Obama, who remains odds-on favourite at 4/7' added Sharpe.
To be Republican candidate....1/25 Romney; 9/1 Gingrich; 25/1 Paul; 50/1 Santorum
To win Presidential race - 4/7 Obama; 5/4 Romney; 25/1 Gingrich; 66/1 Paul; 125/1 Santorum
