New Rorschach test for GOP primary candidates: Crist or Rubio?

by George Bennett | January 12th, 2010

At tonight’s Republican Jewish Coalition forum with the three GOP candidates running in a special Feb. 2 congressional primary, the most interesting question was the last, and it was only three words:

Crist or Rubio?

Joe Budd, Ed Lynch and Curt Price all declined to state a preference in the Senate primary.

Budd mentioned he’s “intrigued” by another candidate in the primary, former New Hampshire Sen. Bob Smith. But both Budd and Lynch criticized Smith for briefly endorsing Democrat John Kerry in 2004 to spite George W. Bush.

The winner of next month’s Republican congressional primary will face the winner of the Ted Deutch-Ben Graber Democratic primary and no-party candidate Jim McCormick in an April 13 general election to replace Democrat Robert Wexler.

    Why not Lois Frankel instead of Deutch?

    Men over women.

    the same thing happened to Hillary…Wexler threw her under the bus, too.
