Hasner grabs an endorsement; LeMieux faces Ray Junior; and Haridopolos makes nice with Cannon

Notes from the Republican U.S. Senate primary:

Adam Hasner today got the endorsement of Ken Blackwell, former Ohio Secretary of State and head of a national balanced budget effort.  "I've gotten to know Adam well through our work on Pass The Balanced Budget Amendment, and I know Adam has the courage to go to Washington and challenge the extreme direction the Obama Administration is taking our country," Blackwell said.

George LeMieux will appear on the Ray Junior radio show at 5 p.m., a venue that left a mark on Mike Haridopolos.

Haridopolos tomorrow will ply a breakfast crowd in Orlando with House Speaker Dean Cannon. It's a campaign event and a way for Haridopolos to show he's got the backing of a key Republican and focus on accomplishments in the legislative session. It's also a public fence mender; Cannon and Haridopolos clashed in the final hours of the session.
