Alan Grayson endorses Darryl Rouson in tight senate race



Democratic Senate candiidate Alan Grayson endorsed Daryl Rouson in what appears to be a neck and neck state senate Democratic primary  in Tampa Bay between Reps. Rouson of St. Petersbiurg, Ed Narain of Tampa, former state Rep. Betty Reed and trial lawyer  Augie Ribeiro. Grayson's endorsement should help bolster Rouson's liberal cred.

 “What we desperately need now is people in public office who are unbought and unbossed […] and Darryl reflects that,” said Grayson. “You won’t find a better champion for what the middle class in America actually needs today. There’s an old saying that it’s necessary to speak truth to power even if it makes you quake inside. Well it’s actually Republicans who quake inside when it’s Darryl saying those words.”
