Dis alert! Mike Haridopolos on endorsing one-time pal Adam Hasner: No way.

Senate President mike Haridopolos and former House Republican leader Adam Hasner used to be buddies. They served together in the Florida House "freedom caucus." They rode together and palled around on Bill McCollum (doomed) campaign bus. They called each other friends.

No longer, apparently.

They ran against each other for U.S. Senate until Haridopolos withdrew from the race unexpectedly after a string of unfortunate events. And he apparently thinks Hasner has a hand in his troubles. Hasner didn't really do that much.

"I can tell you one thing: I will not be supporting Adam Hasner for the Senate,” Haridopolos told the Orlando Sentinel today. "We need to be a party of big ideas, and not legislating one way and running another."
