Where do Rubio's loyalties lie in RPOF race?

U.S. Senate candidate Marco Rubio also happens to be Miami-Dade's Republican state committeeman, which means he has a vote in the Feb. 20 election for the next chair of the Republican Party of Florida. He's been mum, however, about who he will support.

A sign of his loyalties, however, can be found in the relationship between one of his top allies, state Rep. David Rivera, and candidate Sharon Day of Fort Lauderdale.

Rivera made no secret of the fact that he was in close touch with Day following Jim Greer's resignation last month. Today he was less forthcoming:  "We've been friends for 15 years, and I talked to her when all this was going down,'' he said.

Day wouldn't say she had his endorsement. "We're friends. We go way back. He's been very helpful in dealing with some of this stuff. I'm not a politician. I'm am activist.''

Be a leader

Hey Marco and David,

Take the lead and demand the RPOF release your AMEX statements. Others will follow.

The party leaders have a second chance here to NOT screw up the party, its reputation, and its effectiveness--like Shucking Chuckles did when he made Greer the party chair.

Can they not see that the best option would be to make Day the new chair and put someone the major fundraisers trust in as vice-chair?
