In a message to supporters following his victory in Florida on Tuesday, Mitt Romney said he intends to hold President Barack Obama to a statement he made three years ago.

“President Obama told the American people that if he couldn't get our economy turned around by 2012, he'd be looking at a one-term proposition. Well, he was right -- it's time to hold him accountable,” the email read.

Mitt Romney won Florida with 46% of the vote, beating nearest runner-up Newt Gingrich by 14 points. Despite this victory, the former House Speaker vowed to fight.

“We are going to contest every place, and we will win,” he said in front of a sign that read “46 States To Go.”

The GOP contest moves to Nevada on Saturday. Despite Romney's frontrunner status for the GOP nomination, political operatives say that it could still be anyone's race to win.

Republicans "are still looking for a conservative alternative to Romney," said Stuart Roy, an adviser to a pro-Rick Santorum super PAC, the Red, White and Blue Fund."Capturing the narrative” will be key to wresting the nomination from Romney.
