Apparently George LeMieux enjoyed being in the halls of the U.S. Senate.
LeMieux first annunced his campaign today by changing his Twitter avatar. Then came the email.
It is now later.
No one is really surprised that LeMieux entered the race. It will be his second political campaign having lost one in a bid to join the state legislature.
LeMieux is credited with masterminding the Charlie Crist campaign for governor but Lemieux abandoned Crist when the former Republican decided to be an independent candidate for governor.
The GOP money primary is now in full bloom with Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos already in the race and former House Majority Leader Adam Hasner in the wings.
Crowley Political Report is still expecting some yet-to-be-heard-from rich guy to enter the race next year.
Which of three candidates has the early lead?
For now, we'll give it to LeMieux by a hair.
