LeMieux's PAC doles out $15,000 to NRSC



No way George LeMieux backs Charlie Crist as an independent. Just look at the $15,000 LeMieux's political action committee handed over to the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

A new FEC filing shows Protect America's Future took in $7,500 in March and gave money to the NRSC and and $2,400 to Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, who is running for the seat his brother Lincoln is vacating. LeMieux formed the PAC shortly after Crist appointed him to the Senate.

Lemfundraiser The $7,500 in March came from PACs run by Federal Express and Honeywell International. That's a pretty light haul and expect the April report to be larger.

Yesterday, LeMieux had a fundraiser in Washington with some of the biggest Republican names as the draw.
