George Zimmerman prosecutor backs George LeMieux for Senate

Not sure if this helps, hurts or makes no difference. Stll, it's interesting, given the attention over the prosecution of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. The press release:

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – George LeMieux today announced the endorsement of Florida State Attorney Angela Corey of the Fourth Judicial Circuit.

“For years, I have known George LeMieux and seen the positive impact he has had on our state and nation,” said State Attorney Angela Corey. “During his time as the Deputy Attorney General, George fought for justice and successfully argued a death penalty case before the US Supreme Court. While serving in the Senate, George LeMieux made reducing the debt his top priority and showed true leadership. George has always been a friend to Northeast Florida and I look forward to seeing him serve us once again in the US Senate."

“For more than 30 years, Angela has worked to make Northeast Florida safer - first as an Assistant State Attorney and now as the State Attorney for the Fourth Judicial Circuit,” said George LeMieux.  “As former Deputy Attorney General, I know how hard our prosecutors work. Angela is widely known for her fairness, integrity, and work ethic and I am honored to have her support.”

Corey joins a strong team in Jacksonville dedicated to George LeMieux’s election to the US Senate, including former RPOF Chairman Tom Slade, former Jacksonville Mayor John Peyton, Duval County Sheriff John H. Rutherford, State Senator Stephen Wise, City Councilmen William Bishop, Matt Schellenberg, and Bill Gulliford, and Public Defender Matt Shirk. 

This announcement follows four consecutive landslide straw poll victories, the endorsement of Senator Tom Coburn, Herman Cain, 34 sitting Florida legislators, former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, the National Tax Limitation Committee PAC, former Mayor Rich Crotty, conservative radio host Joyce Kaufman, and the Recreational Fishing Alliance.
