Chamber endorsements: Status quo



So for those idealists out there who believe it's possible to oust an incumbent in the Florida Legislature with the right candidate, the right message and the right campaign, here's another dose of reality about how hard a task that is.

The Florida Chamber of Commerce CCE released it's slate of endorsements this morning in Tampa Bay area legislative races. Not a single challenger to an incumbent was endorsed. So the CCE is going to be sending all it's donations to those already in office and encouraging all the chamber's members to vote the status quo.

See the release here.
