Florida Governor Crist in the Spotlight After Republican Senator Martinez Resigns

Monday, August 10, 2009

The Sunshine State is buzzing over Republican Florida Senator Mel Martinez's sudden resignation. Governor Charlie Crist, the Republican front-runner for this Senate seat in 2010, must pick a replacement who won't challenge him, and won't hurt him in a contested GOP primary. Joining The Takeaway to talk about this is Joshua Johnson of WLRN-Miami Herald News, and Al Cardenas, former chair of the Republican Party of Florida. He's also a good friend of Senator Mel Martinez.
