Possibly the Best-Catered Congressional Campaign Ever

I don’t know if restaurant-industry veteran Craig S. Miller is the best Republican to take on Democrat Suzanne Kosmas, who represents the Orlando, Fla,. area in the House of Representatives. But I do know that when it comes to steak, I trust the former president, chief executive, and chairman of Ruth’s Chris Steak House. (You can watch me spill a glass into Mar Hemingway’s lap at the Denver Ruth’s Chris here.)

The DCCC argues that because Miller opposed a federal blood-alcohol level, he “supports drunk driving.” (Boy, desperation must flow through the drinking water over there, huh?)

There are eleven other Republicans running against Kosmas this year.
