Crist v. Rubio

Governor Charlie Crist's campaign for the Republican candidacy to the U.S. Senate appears to be running neck and neck with that of fellow challenger Florida Rep. Marco Rubio. Rubio appears to be outflanking Crist on the right, which is strange given the racial and ethnic attitudes that predominate on the right end of the spectrum. How has Rubio positioned himself in this way? Are the far right fringe elements becoming schizophrenic in their views on race, backing the child of Cuban immigrants to tighten laws on immigration?

Meanwhile on the Democratic side of the ledger, U.S. Rep. Kendrick looks to be in dire straits as well. With name recognition lagging outside of the greater Dade County area, Meek looks to have an uphill climb, particularly among more conservative parts of the state.

Any thoughts on the Florida U.S. Senate race? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
