Rubio continues to rise while Charlie Crist is still hanging with Obama

As you can see FL Gov. Charlie Crist (to the right of the Naval Officer) is still hanging out with President Obama. Obama meanwhile bowed to the Mayor of Tampa, Pam Iorio. 

This all occurred last Thursday when Obama made another campaign stop in Florida. 

Then yesterday


Former state House Speaker Marco Rubio has now jumped to a 12-point lead over Governor Charlie Crist in Florida’s Republican Primary race for the U.S. Senate.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely GOP Primary voters in the state finds Rubio leading Crist 49% to 37%. Three percent (3%) prefer another candidate, and 11% are undecided.

The new numbers mark a stunning turnaround. Crist was the strong favorite when he first announced for the Senate seat, and Rubio was viewed as a long-shot challenger.
But Crist’s support fell from 53% in August to 49% in OctoberBy December, the two men were tied at 43% apiece.

In Florida's Senate general election contest, Crist and Rubio both hold a double-digit lead over their likely Democratic opponent, Congressman Kendrick Meek, in the latest Rasmussen Reports polling of likely voters in the state.

Just a reminder to you all that haven't heard. As we try to finish Crist off the Senate Conservatives Fund is holding a moneybomb for Marco next Wednesday February 10, which happens to be the one year anniversary of the day Crist appeared with Obama in Florida to promote the stimulus. Click here to pledge to donate. This primary is truly the battle for the heart and soul of our party not VA-5 as some of you may think. Charlie Crist is a moderate and that has been proven time and time again. We must defeat Charlie Crist. And all that aside the GOP needs new, diverse, well educated, well spoken, and younger leadership with new ideas if we are going to beat the Dems and get off this socialist track. It would be a crying shame if Marco Rubio wasn't given the opportunity to be a leader for the GOP in the US Senate.

And for all of you who are going to CPAC Marco will be giving the keynote address! See ya there!

PS Marco Rubio for US Senate
