Would the late LeRoy Collins be a Democrat today?



Republican Senate candidate LeRoy Collins in Tampa last night: "My father, LeRoy Collins, the 33rd governor of the great state of Florida, once took on a seemingly impossible challenge; peacefully bringing the civil rights movement here to Florida," Collins said Thursday, formally kicking off his campaign at his daughter's house in South Tampa....With his spirit at my side and with the support of my family, I take on my challenge. I will defy my critics and I will do the seemingly impossible." Story here.
