Daytona Beach News-Journal finally weighs in



Today the Daytona Beach News-Journal recommended Peter Monroe for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. Read editorial here

Also, Monroe blasted opponent LeRoy Collins for comments that appeared in the newspaper about illegal immigration, health care and commercial nuclear waste disposal.

“Based on what I know now about LeRoy Collins policy positions, I really question his competency to serve in the United States Senate," Monroe said. "His policy positions...are fundamentally flawed and represent the statements of someone who is either confused or tragically uninformed on the issues. Between his denial of basic human rights to illegals and his complete seat of the pants position on commercial nuclear waste, his policy positions, if enacted, would represent real peril to Florida and the nation."

Collins' campaign declined to comment.
