Sen. Haridopolos picks up Dean support for 2010 presidency

Count Sen. Charlie Dean in the Haridopolos for Senate Prez 2010 camp.

Dean is endorsing Sen. Mike Haridopolos for the Senate presidency, the two just announced in a press release. Dean's support comes on the heels of an endorsement by Sen. Mike Bennett, who announced last week he is giving up jockeying for the presidency to support fellow Republican Haridopolos.

"It is my honor to endorse Senator Haridopolos," Dean said in a prepared statement.  "Mike is a good friend and you can always count on Mike to follow through with his commitments, lead by example and I have gained great respect for him."

No word yet on who will get leadership spots under Haridopolos, but their support probably helps.

"Charlie brings both insight and vital leadership in helping ensure our success in the future," Haridopolos said. "He will play an important role in the Senate.”
