    Washington Week [#5132H] Mitt Romney scored a resounding victory over Newt Gingrich and two other challengers in the Florida primary this past Tuesday but his clumsy comments about the poor are making headlines and creating a distraction for his campaign. Liberal and conservative critics are using Romney's words to portray him as an out-of-touch millionaire. The fallout serves as a reminder of how much the economic downturn and high unemployment will continue to dominate the political landscape this election season.
    As the race heads into the battleground state of Nevada this weekend, polls show the former Massachusetts governor leading the pack by 20 percentage points. However, Gingrich remains defiant insisting he will stay in the race until the end. But with a major disadvantage in terms of campaign money to Romney, can the former House Speaker convince conservatives to stick with him?
    Meanwhile, reports released by the Federal Election Commission this week reveal how unlimited individual, corporate, and union donations are affecting the 2012 presidential race. It's the first report in a presidential election year since a Supreme Court decision opened the way for virtually unlimited campaign fundraising by special interest groups and political action committees.
