Charlie Justice's Secret



Turns out Democratic state Senate District 16 candidate Charlie Justice doesn't like kids, seniors or veterans. How do we know? The Republican Party of Florida says so in a new mailer hitting days before Republicans decide whether Frank Farkas or Kim Berfield will face Justice in the general election. As Farkas and Berfield bash each other in the primary, the Florida GOP wants to make sure to soften up Justice as the general election gets underway.

Surprisingly on the final day for mail to arrive before primary day, that's one of relatively few nasty pieces we've come across so far today. That and another attack by judicial candidate Bo Michael, who's now getting sued for defamation by opponent Jack Day. More on that here.
