Florida Senate Race

Florida's three-way Senate race is coming to an end
with Republican Marco Rubio leading in all the polls.
Rubio took an unconventional road to become the front-runner and
was helped by independent Gov. Charlie Crist's overture to
Democrats.
Crist appeared to be splitting the Democratic vote with Rep.
Kendrick Meek heading into Tuesday's final day of voting. The
winner will replace Republican Sen. George LeMieux, whom Crist
appointed to replace Mel Martinez.
Rubio was once considered a longshot but he built momentum
through tea party rallies and by talking to conservative groups.
His message was consistent: President Barack Obama's spending
and health care policies are a disaster and the nation will spiral
downward if spending isn't controlled.

    BOB...where's your proof? Back up your big mouth. We know only unions "picket" and the New Black Panther Party is only making themselves known in Philadelphia...so who are we watching our backs for? The dems have the lost the "old folks" vote unless they are rich, liberal elitists...Why don't you just stick to watching TV land, after you vote, that is...

    Rubio supporters are buying and stealing votes, intimidating older voters into not voting and picketing several polling places around town. Watch your backs.

    The Democratic Party has thrown Meeks under the bus. And they are trying to throw Black and Hispanic voters under the bus with Amendments 5 & 6, which could increase the numbers of Democrats in the Florida Legislature and from Florida's Congressional Delegation, BUT only at the expense of minority representation in those seats.
