Dave Roberts for U.S. Senate



The election may be almost four years away but it looks like U.S. Sen. Mel Martinez already has some competition for his 2010 re-election bid: Orlando resident Dave Roberts.

Roberts says on his Website that he works in accounting, is married to a public school teacher and has four children. "I love the state of Florida and don't want to move to Washington D.C., but I am tired of putting my trust in politicians that continually betray conservative ideals for the sake of power, or for any reason at all,'' he writes.

Much of his Website is devoted to the issue of illegal immigration, a hot topic in Washington these days and one in where Martinez played an instrumental (and controversial) role last year.

Roberts' Website (with the slogan "Go home Mel Martinez") is here.
