Mike Haridopolos announced his first major endorsement of the Republican U.S. Senate primary -- former 2010 presidential contender Mike Huckabee.
Huckabee wife gave $4,800 to Haridopolos. In a fundraising letter going out today, Huckabee writes: "We need more street-smart fighters in the Senate -- like Marco Rubio -- capable of stopping the Democrats’ unprecedented spending and government intervention. That is why retiring Bill Nelson and electing Mike Haridopolos is critical."
It's not entirely surprising. Haridopolos was Huckabee's Florida chairman. Both are also Arkansas Razorbacks. As Haridopolos once said: "I'm a Razorback. When I support someone, I go whole hog."
