Mel Martinez endorses old foe Bill McCollum

Sen. Mel Martinez, whose campaign in 2004 pretty much cast Bill McCollum as a gay rights-lovin' liberal loser, has endorsed him for governor.

"In these tough economic times, Bill is the best person to lead the state of Florida. He has the experience; he has been tested; and I know he is ready to be governor. Bill has the perspective an executive needs and the determination to help our state through difficult times. I am proud to give him my endorsement and look forward to calling him my governor."
