Could Bob Smith pose trouble for Marco Rubio?



With less than $10,000 in his account, it's hard to see former New Hampshire Sen. Bob Smith as a serious contender of Florida's Republican nomination, but the guy does have some conservative cred and conceivably could be an obstacle to Marco Rubio's efforts to be the sole credible, conservative alternative to Charlie Crist.

"When this campaign's over (Floridians) are going to know who the conservative is, and it's going to be Bob Smith, not Marco Rubio," Smith said in a Political Connections interview that aired Sunday on Bay News 9. The full interview can be seen on Ch. 342, but here's a clip (Firefox appears to work bettter for viewing than internet explorer).
