Bashing 'Congressman' Jim Greer



The New Argument: The Florida political elite let out a collective chuckle when they learned that Florida State GOP boss Jim Greer is eyeing a bid for Congress against incumbent Democrat Suzanne Kosmas.


Greer was telling intimates two weeks ago that he was moving to a “high level” job at the Republican National Committee under Chairman Michael Steele. All of this indicates that Greer thinks his boss Governor Crist is going to run for the U.S. Senate and will no longer be able to protect his henchmen at the helm of Florida’s Republican Party.

Greer’s musings about running for Congress come on the heels of the Republican Party of Florida’s most recent filings with the Secretary of State that show that the Chairman’s profligate ways have not changed as the Governor told many angry donors it would.
