Jim Gallloway brings us the latest:
Saxby Chambliss’s office just confirmed that the U.S. senator and Gov. Sonny Perdue will host a March 15 fund-raiser at the Georgian Club for Florida Gov. Charlie Crist.
Crist is locked in a bitter Republican primary with former Florida house speaker Marco Rubio for a U.S. Senate nomination.
Our very own Erick Erickson has been pushing hard for Rubio over at Redstate. Rubio is the conservative in this race and needs to be the next Senator of Florida. A lame duck Governor doesn’t have too much to fear by backing who he wants, but will receive criticism none the less. Disappointment with Saxby caused him to have a runoff back in 2008. Chances are he will take some heat for helping Perdue throw this fundraiser for Crist.
