Grayson Competition?

There has been a lot of ink spilled over how Congresscritter Alan Grayson [D FL08] is going to be targeted by the GOP when he runs for re-election.

The Orlando Sentinel reports on the effort in a short article, Crotty’s out — but other Republicans may want to take on Grayson.

Crotty was the only Republican with any actual experience in government who was thought to be considering a run against Grayson. The guys who are left are all neophytes to politics. The best funded, i.e. wealthiest, thinks he’s going to gain votes by attacking Grayson for bringing Federal dollars to Mouseland, because everyone knows how much voters hate to have Federal dollars spent in their district. [/snark]

Grayson may actually end up with a real opponent in 2010, but it has to be someone who is going to show a lot of hidden talents for politics. Grayson won running as what he has proven to be, a progressive, against an incumbent Republican conservative. The voters decided that he was what they wanted. Unless the UF or FSU football coach decides to run against him, he’s probably in a good position for re-election.
