I was doing a post on an AP article about the purported inroads being made by the Democrats in South Florida for Babalu when I was struck with the notion of character.
I came across this tidbit about the Diaz-Balarts:
Both have the backing of likely GOP presidential nominee John McCain, whom they refused to desert when his poll numbers were down.
Almost unheard of in politics to continue backing a candidate who's been given up for dead . But that's what the brothers did. Also surprising is the reluctance, self-serving or not, of other local elected Democrats:
While the national Democratic party supports the challengers, Reps. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Kendrick Meek, D-Fla., have refused to actively campaign against the Diaz-Balarts.
Verry interesting as they say.
