McCallum and Linn



It didn't take long for Democratic state House 52 candidate Liz McCallum to get on her feet after losing her primary by 6.8 percentage points. She's now working on Reform party gubernatorial candidate Max Linn's campaign, doing media consulting. "When we didn't win, the phones started ringing the next morning,'' McCallum said of the Linn campaign.

Asked if that means she's now working against Democrats, McCallum said, "I think Max will take more votes away from Charlie Crist than Jim Davis. Plus Max and I agree on most issues.'' She did add, however, that plenty of Rod Smith supporters are embracing Linn's campaign, turned off by Davis' victory speech Tuesday night when he barely mentioned Smith.
