U.S. Sen Roger Stone?



stone.pngBad news for those of us looking for someone to breath some life into the Florida U.S. Senate race. Veteran GOP operarative Roger Stone, the impeccably dressed, Miami-based bad boy of GOP politics lately hanging with the Libertarian party, had been looking at running until a circuit court ruling on the timing of party switches to run for office (aka the Charlie Crist Law). Stone now says he won't run for the Bill Nelson seat, being challanged by Republicans George Lemieux, Connie Mack IV, and Mike McCalister.


"Pity. Would have been spirited campaign," Stone said. "I would have run anti-war, pro-marijuana, pro-small govt, anti-tax, pro-personal freedom campaign."
