The blue-blood Republicans are pissed. Good.
I think he has a bigger fight now on his hands - although he has a lot of money to fight with. For our sake, I hope the campaign doesn't get as ugly. If he goes after her like he did with McCollum, it will turn out a larger inspired d vote. That would spell trouble for Rubio.

If he goes after her like he did with McCollum, it will turn out a larger inspired d vote. That would spell trouble for Rubio. To be fair, it was McCollum and the GOP big wigs in Tallahassee that first declared the nasty war on Scott. The establishment was fighting for its life. McCollum has just been around too long. He's been a politician in this state for over 20 years. So the "career politician" label stuck with him. And his flip-flop on immigration made him look like a political bandwagoner.There is no question the Democrats will now flood the airwaves with negative ads attacking Scott. Sink is also an establishment candidate that will be backed heavily by the White House. Even though Sink has refused appearances with Obama (since Obama is now toxic), they will still throw money at her along with the less-toxic endorsements like the Clintons. D.C. doesnt take kindly to political outsiders. So they will fight. Polls right now are pretty meaningless. After the huge primary fight you have to wait a few weeks for the dust to settle to see where all the votes are going to fall.The question I have is what will the White House do regarding Meek? Meek winning the primary actually helps Rubio because Meek steals any black votes away from Crist. So actually the more the White House helps Meek, the more it helps Rubio. You got to wonder if the White House is privately hoping that Crist pulls out a win. But do the Democratic party abandon their own nominee and campaign for an independent? That won't look good. Dems are between a rock and a hard place there.
I think Crist is toast.
but I'll tell you right now I'm voting for Crist over Rubio.
