The Washington Post says the Rubio campaign is accused of losing the momentum of its earlier days, when the young GOP star made points bashing his Republican rival for the U.S. Senate Gov. Charlie Crist. Now Crist is an independent, and picking up steam from his constant TV presence, courtesy of the BP oil spill and high-profile labor endorsements. Rubio meanwhile, is more likely to make national news for fighting foreclosure.
Meanwhile, The Palm Beach Post says that the Democrats’ preferred Senate candidate Kendrick Meek, a U.S. representative, is running a lackluster campaign because he’s never had to run a tough one thanks to his mom’s name recognition in South Florida.
