Jim Greer still has a job



This shouldn't be much of a surprise, but Florida GOP leaders took no formal action at their closed door meeting in Lake County this afternoon - called to help iron out concerns many party leaders expressed about the state Chairman Jim Greer.

"It was productive, definitely. Just open discussion,'' said Hillsborough State Committeeman A.J. Matthews. "The chairman's amicable to settling differences. In the end this is all about being one, big happy family."

"Everyone was polite and nice. It was not contentious,'' said Pinellas GOP Chairman Tony DiMatteo. "There was not a formal board meeting ,so there  was no action that could be taken."

If anything dramatic is going to occur with the state party's leadership it will happen at the December executive committee meeting in Tallahassee or more likely at the January meeting in Orlando.
