LAS VEGAS (AP) — Dealt loses as expected in Florida, Republican presidential candidates Rick Santorum and Ron Paul courted voters Tuesday in Western states that hold upcoming contests — and made clear they’re not bowing out.

“Republicans can do better. We can do better than the discussion and the dialogue that were going on in the state of Florida and where this campaign went downhill,” Santorum said of GOP infighting that reached a fever pitch in recent days and yielded a win for Mitt Romney.

“What we’ve seen the last few weeks in Florida is not something that is going to help us win this election. Let’s put those issues behind us and focus on the real issue, which is defeating Barack Obama,” he told supporters in Las Vegas. “We’re not going to do that by mudslinging.”
