What took ya so long, Holly Benson?

Republican attorney general candidate Holly Benson announced she's endorsing governor candidate and current AG Bill McCollum -- just seven days before the vote.

Why wait so long?

It's not like Benson is Jeb Bush, whose endorsement matters in a statewide race. Upon information and belief (as they say in indictments): McCollum is surging in the polls. And Benson is likely trailing her opponents, prosecutor Pam Bondi and lieutenant governor Jeff Kottkamp. Speculation: Benson is angling not just for a little press, but for a potential spot on McCollum's ticket, which desperately needs a female.
