Max Linn v Bill Young?




UPDATE: Max Lynn: "We're going to do the David and Goliath campaign," he said in an interview this afternoon.

Linn said Young has steered a lot of federal dollars to Tampa Bay but his positions on Iraq and terrorism have undermined the United States. He said Young is in "lock step" with President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney. More here.

There's Buzz that former Reform party gubernatorial candidate Max Linn is likely to announce tonight that he's running as a Democrat to unseat U.S. Rep. CW Bill Young. He would face a primary against Samm Simpson.

Linn was expected to make the announcement at the Greater Pinellas Democratic Club, which tonight celebrates the 80 birthday of the club president and Democratic kingpin, the one and only Harvey Morgenstein. Happy birthday, Harvey, from the Buzz.
