Alan Grayson and Florida pollitics
Here’s one for the Strange Bedfellows file: The Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida and the conservative Club For Growth are both encouraging liberal firebrand Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Orlando, to run for Senate in 2016.
This seems to be some sort of rat-fucking because "The Club for Growth, it should be noted, has already endorsed Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis in the Senate race."
Grayson, who is considering a Senate run, is known for using fiery rhetoric to knock down opponents. He made headlines for describing the GOP health plan as "don't get sick, and if you do get sick, die quickly." He called a Republic opponent "Taliban Dan" in an effort to paint him as a religious extremist, compared the tea party to the Klu Klux Klan and called his estranged wife a gold digger during an explosive divorce.
Another Democrat, U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, also is ahead of the the two most prominent Republican contenders, leading Lopez-Cantera, 37-31 percent and DeSantis, 38-32 percent.
Anyone here from Florida? Anyone know anything about this race?
