This is a sign of how bad things are in the GOP
Under pressure from fundraisers and friends, Sen. Mel Martinez has decided not to endorse presidential candidate John McCain, who was planning to campaign Monday in Miami with the popular Florida Republican to help win crucial votes in South Florida’s Hispanic community.
A big factor in Martinez’s decision: He feels badly for McCain’s opponent, Rudy Giuliani. After all, the former New York mayor was a Martinez supporter, and thought he had a shot at Martinez’s support.
”Mel’s a tower of Jell-O,” said Republican operative Roger Stone, a McCain backer. “He was committed to McCain, and given McCain’s role in the fight over immigration and given the fact he’s going to win South Carolina tonight, Mel Martinez should have done what he said and gone with the guy who will be president.”
Ouch – sounds like some people are upset with old Mel. I love watching a good cat fight.
