This week Ron Paul in New Jersey talking to Chris Christie today.
We'll have more on that later but first Herman -- getting a big boost from the Florida straw poll sweeping the field this weekend remember.
Florida governor Rick Scott made a bold prediction about -- the winner.

So I mean Kane president joining me now is North Carolina GOP chairman mr.
Robin Hayes north North Carolina very important state thank you for joining us chairman.
First of all obviously governor Scott expected or even -- saw in any way shape or form are Herman -- win in Florida.
Little bit of -- surprise but Rick -- businessman who knows -- -- creating jobs that you got to put some credibility in that.
OK so credibility but where did He come from He He won with 37%.
Of the straw poll vote.
Boy I never saw that even if even if you said Rick Perry.
Failed at it during the debate which a lot of people think He did I don't personally think -- fail but even if you believe He failed at the debate.
Wouldn't have thought Mitt Romney -- one that poll.
I'm not really I think one thing it.
Public needs focus on is when you look at Herman Cain an African American -- in Florida Michelle Bachmann went in the first straw poll in Iowa it shows a tremendous variety of candidates and points of the U.
White woman African American we got old republicans' traditional like -- but again we're appealing to people across a broad spectrum of America.
In jobs is where we need to be.
And I think that's very positive thing to bring away from the Florida and our primaries.
-- -- -- to listen to Donald Trump this morning when asked by Gretchen Carlson of FOX & Friends how Herman -- pull off a victory.
And regret not seeing in the -- Donald because.
You know a lot of people say the reason that Herman Cain won the straw poll this was because number one he's not a politician.
Number two He was a successful businessman and I'm thinking Donald Trump is both of those things to regret not been -- -- -- what I would.
Leading in all the polls -- I left and I left for a very good reason that I wasn't very happy with what was going on with the Republican Party with the statements that would make -- dispatches they would take it.
So -- kind of summarizes what you just said there he's a successful businessman maybe that's what people want is that what people want successful business people.
That's up obviously a very important factor they want someone that has positive hopeful solutions for the country ways to create jobs through.
Proven methods people that can improve the economy that's while the broad.
Base different points of view makes a Republican primary so constructive so competitive and so important.
That's going to be a good hard fought campaign.
