The GOP is headed to Florida.

Republicans have picked Tampa for their 2012 presidential convention.

Florida is a swing state with a hefty 27 electoral votes.

The choice still needs the approval from the full Republican National Committee in August.

The last Republican convention in Florida was in Miami in 1972 when the party nominated President Richard Nixon and Vice President Spiro Agnew.
