Diaz-Balart, Posey, Rooney make GOP vulnerable list



Logo_patriots Florida Congressmen Mario Diaz-Balart, Bill Posey and Tom Rooney have been put on the National Republican Congressional Committee's list of vulnerable incumbents.

Officially they were added to the NRCC's Patriot Program, which is an attempt to hold the lawmakers accountable for meeting their own fundraising goals in return for party help. How things shake out is unknown, of course. Diaz-Balart was widely said to be in danger of losing last cycle but outlasted the Obama momentum.

On the Democratic side, the GOP views Reps. Suzanne Kosmas and Alan Grayson as the most vulnerable, with Grayson considered the easier target.
