Rubio’s Surge

Two polls – Rasmussen and a private poll by Tony Fabrizo — show Marco Rubio gaining a double-digit lead on Gov. Charlie Crist (R-Fla.) in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate. The incredible aspect of Rubio’s steady progress is that it has come without paid TV media or a fundraising advantage. Blog buzz, Twitter, Facebook, talk radio, local activism fueled by Tea Parties — all of that has turned Rubio into the sudden frontrunner for a race he was encouraged to drop out of.

Senator Rubio, said expecting a complete victory in the Senatorial race in Florida, will have my support if he is conservative; anti-tax; limited government; reduced national debt; anti closed door; anti union pandering; anti vote buying as a senator. I am a conservative democrat and I must tell you, I think the democrat's have become a boil on the ass of America. I hope Rubio lances this boil by removing the heads of Obama/Reid/Pelosi. Thanks for being concerned enough Mr. Rubio to subject yourself to the politics found in Washington and putting the interest of the people of Florida first. Thank you THANK YOU!

“conservative democrat”: a conservative democrat 20years ago is by current lights a flaming liberal, so I'm thinking your frame of reference is in need of serious recalibration.
