    He should have been running as a democratic all along.

    Could be. If he does it will certainly screw up the Republican vote. Both Crist and Rubio have had some shady money problems. But things like that don't tend to matter to idealists.

    If Crist signs the teacher bill he's probably going to be more popular with the right wing.

    yes... he'd be more popular, but i think they'd still call him a RINO because he's not a loon.

    He is only in a race with George Hamilton to see who can be the darkest white man.

    I'm down here in Florida also.

    Had heard that on the news.

    I like Rubio but he may be a little to far right for me. I don't particularly care for Christ. So it will be a tossup for me.

    Will have to watch what goes on now till elections roll around.
