Alan Grayson will announce this morning that, despite the strong efforts of the Democratic establishment to push Patrick Murphy, a recently-switched Democrat, as the Democratic nominee for the Senate seat left open by Marco Rubio’s presidential race, he’s running.
Naturally, the D.C. Dems are flinging all kinds of mud to smear him (including one story about his investment fund). I was on a call with him last night and he explained the allegations in great detail. I don’t think he’ll have a problem.
Republicans just hate him. He’s running, and he intends to win. Send him money, he’ll need it.
How much is NRSC paying Alan Grayson to run for Senate?
