Could this be the Thrilla in Manila - look it up kids.
Democrat Lois Frankel, soon-to-be former mayor of West Palm Beach, is announcing today that she will take on freshman Republican Congressman Allen West in 2012.
This will be Frankel's second bid for a congressional seat. Her first effort was against Democrat Alcee Hastings who famously called Frankel a "racist bitch" in one of 1992's most heated congressional races.
Frankel lost and then ten years later made an ill-fated attempt to become the Democratic nominee for Florida governor in 2002. She made little headway and quit the governor's race to run for mayor of West Palm Beach.
She has been an energetic and controversial mayor. Frankel's style is often confrontational and she's not afraid to slash at the media and political opponents.
Frankel does not take slights easily.
In some way's Frankel and West are two sides of the same coin.
We'll have more on this development later.
