Democrats back Robaina in House fight

Florida Democratic Party Chair Karen Thurman is trying to drive a partisan wedge into the House's intramural squabble that resulted in Miami Republican Julio Robaina getting removed as a committee chairman.

"While the Republican leadership might think of their members as sheep, Floridians expect more out of their elected officials," Thurman said in a statement. "Floridians are sick of the Republican culture of back room deal and Republican corruption that that has dominated Tallahassee for too long. Floridians know that Republicans have taken our state down the wrong path, which is why Florida will bring change to Tallahassee by electing Democrats in 2010."
