MIAMI—Mitt Romney strode into the final 48 hours of the pivotal Florida Republican primary campaign with the confidence of a resurgent front-runner, predicting he will win in Tuesday's voting while looking ahead to future contests.
His main rival, Newt Gingrich, hustled around the state, trying to rekindle the energy that lifted him to victory in the South Carolina primary on Jan. 21. He acknowledged the possibility he could lose here but vowed to fight Mr. Romney to the party's national convention this summer.
Outspent 3-1 on television advertising in Florida during the campaign's closing week, Mr. Gingrich was working the media by chatting up reporters on Saturday and scheduling appearances on two nationally televised Sunday talk shows.
