Coming off of a solid win in the Florida primary on Tuesday, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, along with the three remaining GOP candidates, headed to Nevada for the caucus there on Saturday.

“I would work with the people and encourage free trade and try to set a standard here where countries in Central America or South America or any place in the world would want to emulate us and set the standards that we have.”

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney:
