Haridopolos' U.S. Senate strategy: Rubio, Rubio, Rubio, Rubio, Rubio, Rubio ...
Marco Rubio may not have known he has such a close pal in Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos, but Haridopolos is letting Republicans across Florida about his "good friend."
In a multi-page fundraising solicitation, Rubio is mentioned a stunning six times. It has offended some of Rubio's close allies, who wonder where Haridopolos was when it looked like Charlie Crist would bury his young rival. But Haridopolos' strategy is clearly focused on aligning himself with Rubio's star power and tapping into the same energy (and later, dollars) from conservative voters.
Haridpolos kept neutral in the early goings of the race but later campaiged for Rubio.
