Tomorrow night’s deadline is a big one here at the Florida Democratic Party. It’s one of our last FEC deadlines before the campaign to defeat Rick Scott really kicks into high gear in 2014.

Republicans are again playing by two sets of rules – One for them, and one for the rest of us. Case in point: Florida Congressman Radel, arreseted for possession of cocain, and who intends to take a leave of absence and apparenty the GOP is OK with that.
