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
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.
