Rubio and Crist Slug it Out

The Florida Senate race has taken a dramatic turn, with conservative Marco Rubio opening a substantial lead over Governor Charlie Crist. Crist was a huge favorite coming into the race, but Rubio has tapped into conservative revulsion at Crist endorsing President Obama’s stimulus package. Rubio has become a nationwide conservative favorite, and he has put Crist on the defensive. But recent news stories detailing Rubio’s questionable financial dealings have Crist ready to utilize his large warchest to highlight the self dealing engaged in by Rubio. This primary is a nationwide race to watch. Rubio hit back at the recent Crist attack ad with one of his own. Should be a rocking few months in Florida, since this primary is not until August.
