Orlando, Florida (AP) --

Marco Rubio's opponents in the Florida Senate race want most voters to think he's a far-right extremist.

But they're also trying to convince the tea party supporters who
propelled him to the GOP nomination that he's just another
politician who will say one thing and do another.

The mixed message is a reflection of Rubio's lead in recent

Democratic U.S. Rep. Kendrick Meek is struggling to win votes in
his own party. Gov. Charlie Crist is running as an independent
after years of promoting himself as a conservative. They need to do
something fast to catch up.

Meek and Crist don't have much love for each other, but they are
united in their criticism of Rubio.

Rubio, meanwhile, is sticking to the script he's followed since
he got in the race.
