Haridopolos does the U.S. Senate fundraise circuit in NY

When Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos yesterday said he was "looking into" running for U.S. Senate, it was an understatement. We hear he's in New York preparing to hit the big boys up for big bucks in preparation for a run.

A fundraising machine with a knack for squeezing six-figure checks from special interests, Haridopolos has doubled-down as of late. Donors, lobbyists and Capitol folks say he's working hard in the state, federal and financial capitols to start gobbling up whatever excess cash might otherwise go to Mr. "I'm a Charlie Crist Republican," Sen. George LeMieux.
