The race for the Republican Senate nomination in Florida gets better every day. Rubio, the tea party’s choice, has come from way back to a big lead and Florida Governor Crist sounds more desperate every day.
No wonder Charlie Crist wants to talk about back waxing. That may be his new profession after the Florida primaries, thanks to a massive outpouring of Republican support for his opponent, Marco Rubio. Public Policy Polling warned of an explosive new survey yesterday, but a 32-point deficit isn’t just explosive — it’s probably fatal to Crist’s career:
I think this bite from last night’s Greta show says it all. Greta asks why Crist believes Rubio is not a real conservative. Crist points to Marco Rubio’s use of a Republican party credit card for personal expenses, including one charge for a haircut. Rubio says he paid every personal expense charge personally but Crist decides to lower the bar. Let the fun begin.
Ed’s take on this is a little more serious and worth reading I think. As I have said on the air, he does take a more sober look at this stuff than I.
Why can’t we have a fun Senate race like this in Connecticut, instead we get this. Uggh.
