Rubio - Crist Fast Becoming Proxy War Between Republican Right and Center

Another conservative U.S. Senator has defied party leaders to give an endorsement to Marco Rubio over Charlie Crist. And check out the statement by Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, particularly this part:

"Like me, Marco believes that the federal government works best when it returns dollars, decisions and freedom to our local communities and families. In the Senate, Marco will stand up for America's taxpayers, not with President Obama and dangerous big government spending," he added.
A none-too-subtle swipe at Crist's appearing with Obama in Fort Myers during the heat of the stimulus controversy. And there may be more "true conservatives" going Rubio after today's news of how the young former speaker has narrowed Crist's lead from 29 points to 15 in the latest poll.
