Money Talks in Florida

Bruce Drake at Politicsdaily.com analyzes cash and Sunshine State politics. A taste:

The two wealthy candidates who have burst into Florida’s GOP gubernatorial primary and Democratic Senate contest — Rick Scott and Jeff Greene — have ridden their cash into leads in each race, although many voters remain undecided and could change their minds, according to a Quinnipiac University poll conducted July 22-27.

“If there was any doubt that enough money can make a political unknown into a front-runner, the Democratic Senate primary and the Republican primary for governor should lay them to rest,” said Quinnipiac’s Peter A. Brown. “Both Greene and Scott have come from nowhere to hold double-digit leads with just a little more than three weeks until the voting.”
