Tea partiers coming after Bill McCollum next?

That's what the Democratic Governors Association is pushing -- first Utah Sen. Bob Bennett and next Bill McCollum. DGA Executive Director Nathan Daschle writes in a memo released today:

Polling out this weekend suggests the Tea Partiers’ next victory could be over Florida Attorney General McCollum, an establishment darling who just shed 26 points in his primary against a Tea Party candidate. The Tea Partiers have found their ideal candidate – one who speaks their language and is putting in the resources to back it up. Just a few weeks ago, former health care executive Rick Scott joined the race and has since run hard to the right. Scott has already poured nearly $5 million in ads on TV and launched his first radio spot – a self-titled “Florida Conservative Commentary” to discuss his close relationship with the Tea Party.
