Would LeMieux Endorse Rubio if Crist Goes Indy?
|If LeMieux wants another Senate office, he might have to throw Crist under the bus.|
Sources close to LeMieux said they believe he has made his decision, and that he will stick with the party over the person. LeMieux has talked the decision over with his advisors and staff, and they believe LeMieux would endorse ex-FL House Speaker Marco Rubio (R) if Crist makes his switch official.The idea is that LeMieux wants to run for Senate against Bill Nelson in 2012, which would be harder if he's tied to Crist's sinking political fortunes. But can you imagine LeMieux sandbagging a close friend and political ally purely for his own personal gain?
"He's made his position pretty clear. He's been a life-long Republican," said one source who asked not to be named revealing internal discussions.
Yeah, I can too.
