According to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune, at a stop in Sarasota on Friday, Sen. George LeMiuex, R-Fla., again asserted that The New Yorker was wrong when it reported that he had initially expressed interest in joining fellow Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., John Kerry, D-Mass., and Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., in the trio’s effort to craft a cap-and-trade bill.

From the Herald-Tribune:

The New Yorker version of what happened isn’t true, LeMieux said in an interview just before he addressed the Sarasota Republican Club on Friday afternoon.

LeMieux said he never suggested he really supported the bill. LeMieux said he supports the use of alternative fuels and building nuclear power plants but always feared that the so called cap-and-trade legislation would be too costly for utility customers in Florida.
