  1. Way to go Marco. I think Republicans are finally getting tired of Republicans who run, campaign and vote for Democrat ideas. Marco took a risk, thought there where a lot of irritated Republicans who where not being represented and as a reult he is outraising his Democratic rival Charlie Crist. I know Charlie is a registered Republican, but for all ideological and practical reasons, he really should be running as a Democrat.

    • Agree 100%. It took a lot of guts to run against a RINO who all the experts said was unbeatable. No matter what Crist says...he will run in the fall as an Independent. I'm hoping that J.D. Hayworth can defeat the older Charlie Crist in Arizona.
