Fla Dems launch GOP "baggage bracket"



Florida Democrats have launched a new web page smacking Republicans they say are laden wih baggage:

Politics is a contact sport -- and the 8 embattled Republicans below have already accumulated enough bruises and Florida baggage to last a whole election season. March is definitely the month for ratings and brackets -- that's why we're inviting you to play our GOP Baggage Bracket.

Make your pick in week one for the Republicans who already have the most Florida baggage, and then check back next week to see who advanced to the next round in this race to the bottom.  


Oh -- after you've made your pick, make sure to invite your friends. After all, it wouldn't be March if you couldn't brag about your bracket to someone. 



Scott Arceneaux 
Executive Director, Florida Democratic Party

Responds RNC spox Matt Connelly: “The Obama campaign didn’t know the University of South Florida was in the NCAA tournament and apparently Florida Democrats haven’t been around to see the baggage created for Democrats during the last three years of failed economic policies from President Obama. Under the Obama Administration, Americans have seen gas prices soar higher, spending reach new highs, and the cost of living increase. Americans are not better off than they were three years ago and they have President Obama to thank.”
