Could a Socialist Radical Save the Senate for Republicans?

Alan Grayson
Written by Onan Coca

A bit of good news from Javier Manjarres at the Shark Tank in Florida. While most of us in the conservative media are worried about how the national elections are going to go in November, an old foe may be providing some good news for us. It seems that liberal, radical (and yes, evil) Democrat Alan Grayson may be on the verge of upsetting a Democrat ‘golden boy’ in Florida.

Patrick Murphy is an up-and-coming star in the Democrat Party from Florida who seems destined for great things with the Party nationally. Many pundits believe that if Murphy is nominated he could easily win the soon to be vacated Senate seat from Marco Rubio (R-FL). However, before he can be the Democrat nominee, Murphy has to win his primary… and his rhetorical bomb-throwing opponent, Alan Grayson, doesn’t seem like he’s going to give up the nomination without a fight.

In fact, the most recent Public Policy Poll (PPP) of Florida Democrat Alan Grayson is leading Murphy by “a hair.”

Liberal firebrand Alan Grayson barely leads Barack Obama-backed Patrick Murphy for Florida’s Democratic U.S. Senate nomination, 33 percent to 32 percent, in an automated poll of likely Democratic voters commissioned by two political groups supporting Grayson…

“Alan Grayson is leading by a hair. But voters are not happy when they learn Patrick Murphy worked with Republicans to try to cut Social Security for millions of Florida seniors. They are also not happy that Murphy takes money from Wall Street and then votes to deregulate Wall Street, allowing risky gambling to put the life savings and homes of millions of Floridians at risk,” the groups said in a statement.

While most of the other polls of the state show Grayson facing an uphill battle for the nomination, Republicans will take any bit of good news that they can. Grayson is an extreme leftist liberal who would have a very difficult time winning a state that is evenly divided between Democrats and Republicans. However, Murphy is seen as more of a moderate (inaccurately), and would likely walk away with the election, especially if the Republicans fail to nominate a presidential candidate who can excite the base and drive voter turnout.

If the GOP loses Rubio’s seat from Florida, it may be very difficult to hold on to the majority in the Senate.
