The Secret Service will begin to provide security for Florida primary winner Mitt Romney on Thursday, ABC News reported on Tuesday.

Romney is getting the protection because of the growing size of crowds at his rallies; there has not been a specific threat against him, ABC News reported. 

Herman Cain was the first Republican presidential candidate to get Secret Service protection, but he ended his campaign in December.
