In Florida, Republican Marco Rubio is projected to defeat Independent Charlie Crist and Democrat Kendrick Meek.
I don’t know much about Rubio, but I am glad to see Crist go down to defeat. Crist lost to Rubio in the Republican primary and promptly decided to run as an Independent. In my view, Crist’s willingness to say and do anything to try to get elected epitomizes everything that is wrong with American politicians. Principles obviously meant little to him; his campaign was all about voting for Charlie Crist. Voters apparently decided they would rather vote for a candidate who stood for something other than his own advancement.
It will be interesting to see how Rubio performs on the national stage. As a conservative son of Cuban immigrants, he will be the focus of some significant media attention.
