Buoyed by his decisive primary victory in Florida, presidential candidate Mitt Romney headed to Minnesota and Nevada to campaign Wednesday, declaring that the Sunshine State results should put to rest charges that he is not conservative enough to lead the Republican party.

“I really think the fact that conservatives in Florida said they supported me makes sense, and I think the other candidates are trying to say they’re the conservative and you stop and say now wait a second: What are the major issues of our times that conservatives have a viewpoint on?” Romney said to reporters aboard a chartered jet headed from Tampa to Minneapolis, en route to an afternoon rally in Eagen, Minn.
