Over the last two months NEWSMAX has been pushing McCollum for the Republican candidate for governor. They were pushing hard so I sent them an email stating that they were backing a RINO and I intend to vote for a conservative, Rick Scott. They had stated in an earlier post that Bill McCollum was the only one that could beat the Democrat candidate. In the meantime a number of prominent Republicans lined up behind
McCollum. It occurred to me that they would back any Republican they thought would win the general election regardless of the candidate’s principles or lack thereof. Rick Scott beat McCollum in the primary yesterday. NEWSMAX had sided with the “good old boys” and hasn’t yet realized that we conservatives are serious and are here to stay.
I expect Rick’s win with Tea Party backing will gel some Republican backbones in the general election coming up. That should worry Charlie Crist in the Senatorial race against Marco Rubio, the Tea Party candidate. Rubio isn’t the perfect Tea party Candidate but he is the most conservative candidate in that race. Crist probably won’t get the moderate Republicans he needs to join with the Democrats that were giving him the notion he could win as an Independent. In the three way race with Charlie Crist and Alex Sink, I expect Marco Rubio
will win hands down. Crist and Sink will split the moderate and independent votes that Rubio doesn’t get.
That’s my take and I am sticking to it.
