Marco Rubio, Florida's Republican candidate for the US Senate, has just released a new campaign ad that's not only a pitch for votes, it's a great summary of what these mid-term elections are really about. The son of Cuban exiles, Mr. Rubio offers his own insight on America's past and current challenges and warns, "If we stay on this road Washington has us on right now, we will risk the essence of what makes us exceptional."

Florida Governor and US Senate candidate Charlie Crist is getting so good at changing positions on an issue, he can now do it within the same televised interview. Appearing on CNN's State of the Union program today, the no-party-affiliated candidate was asked if he would return campaign contributions given by Republican donors before he abandoned the GOP. Mr. Crist's first response: "we'll give it back to people who had asked for it." But just a moment later he said, "People gave money to a good cause, I'm going to spend it on a good cause and that's how I feel about it." (source)

Florida Governor and US Senate candidate Charlie Crist is finding it more and more difficult to keep his fluctuating positions on the issues straight. While still a Republican he strongly supported the disastrous Obama Stimulus. Once he was assured a loss in the GOP primary he decided to abandon his party but kept its donors' cash. And now amid falling poll numbers, his go-along-to-get-along positions are starting to confuse even him.

Florida Governor Charlie Crist who has gone from presumptive loser in the Republican primary to go-along-to-get-along candidate in the race for US Senate has given the voters another glimpse of his character this week. After his refusal months ago to return money to Republican donors who requested refunds when he abandoned their party, Mr. Crist has agreed to refund $9,600 in campaign contributions from an indicted political ally who needs the money for his legal fees.

As a wave of anti-establishment sentiment spreads and a stronger wave of opposition to the Obama agenda grows, it looks like Florida voters are not going to be left out of the real hope and change this November. According to the latest poll of likely voters, former state House Speaker Marco Rubio (R) has a 5 point lead over non-party affiliated Governor Charlie Crist (38% - 33%). Either Democrat they'll face in the general election will most likely be a non-factor in the race with approximately 20% of the vote. (source)
