Rep. Ron Paul says he’s skipping the Florida Primary. Instead, he will focus on February caucuses in Nevada, Louisiana and Maine.

A Paul campaign spokesman told Politico "It’s such an expensive state, and with their delegates cut in half, the math just doesn’t make sense." Paul’s National Campaign Chairman told Politico it would cost an "estimated $9 million to run a comprehensive program in the Sunshine State."

Fifty delegates are at stake in Florida, and it’s winner-take-all. Florida lost half of its delegates after it violated RNC rules by moving its primary to January 31.

Florida is also a closed primary, which means Paul won’t be able to take advantage of independent voters, there.
