Alan Grayson announced this morning that, despite the strong efforts of the Democratic establishment to push Patrick Murphy, a recently-switched Democrat, as the Democratic nominee for the Senate seat left open by Marco Rubio's presidential race, he's running.
Naturally, the D.C. Dems are flinging all kinds of mud to smear him (including one story about his investment fund). I was on a call with him last night and he explained the allegations in great detail. I don't think he'll have a problem.
He pointed out last night that every time the establishment Dems try to run someone in Florida who's more of a Republican (which Patrick Murphy was until not that long ago), Democrats don't even bother coming out to vote. He won't have that problem.
Republicans just hate him. He's running, and he intends to win. Send him money, he'll need it. Click here.
How much is NRSC paying Alan Grayson to run for Senate?
