The LeMieux-Crist Master Plan Revealed: Senate Dominance by 2012



Yes, you heard right. In the closing moments of that Capital News Service video, the reporter says that Broward County trailblazer George LeMieux "is leaving open the possibility that he'll run for U.S. Senate in 2012," when that darned Democrat Bill Nelson is up for reelection. Which means if his pal Charlie Crist wins the Senate in 2010, as he's favored to do, then in 2012, it could be Crist and LeMieux -- two peas in a pod -- representing Florida in the U.S. Senate.

Holy cronyism, Batman! Has this dynamic duo designed a dastardly deal? Tune in next election cycle to find out. Same bat time. Same bat channel.
