Broward hits a home run in the YR Hall of Fame

Their mommas must be proud. Tomorrow, two former chairmen of the Broward Republican Party - George LeMieux and Ed Pozzuoli - will be inducted into the Florida Young Republican Hall of Fame.

LeMieux is chief of staff to Gov. Charlie Crist. Pozzuoli is president of the Tripp Scott law firm in Fort Lauderdale. Previous inductees include newly elected Attorney General Bill McCollum and U.S. Rep. Bill Young.

"When they put you in the hall of fame, I think it means you're getting old,'' joked Pozzuoli, who is 44.

LeMieux, who is 37, said: "At least I'm still young enough to be a Young Republican."

Just barely. The Florida Federation of Young Republicans defines a YR as a registered voter who is 40 years old or under.
