Trey Radel scores on Saturday TV



Rep. Trey Radel, R-Fort Myers, has tweeted his way out of the anonymity of a freshman legislator.

His prolific use of social media, touching on virtually anything that crosses his mind -- on plane rides home he's been known to give a running commentary on Sky Mall catalogues -- has helped gain media attention. Saturday, Radel hit the trifecta, appearing on CNN, MSNBC and Fox. He wasn't talking about his love of hip hop, but battle over Obamacare and Benghazi.
