Planas: Cretul is our man



Housephotooriginal2547 Rep. J.C. Planas, the Miami Republican who helped prompt a review of the rules Ray Sansom used to temporarily recuse himself as speaker, says he's fully behind Sansom's replacement.

"I'm going to support Larry Cretul tonight," Planas said, referring to the 9 p.m. GOP caucus meeting to select a new leader. Planas said he spoke today with Cretul, R-Ocala. "I have all the confidence in the world he’s up to the task and he’ll be inclusive. The rules were followed. That's all I wanted. I still think what we went through was a necessary catharsis."
