So much for the state Party's efforts to playdown the importance of primaries during the 2010 election cycle. Attorney General Bill McCollum is the establishment favor to take the Republican's nomination for the Governors race. So much so that it seems Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson was pressured out of the race, but the grass roots and others in the party aren't so happy with the heavyweights crowning their favorites with out a challenge.
It's asking a lot to expect that a primary fight doesn't develop in either party in either the Gov or Sen's race, and believe me the media will cling on to any that actually has a shade of possibly being competitive. There's a whole lot of stories to file before November 2010, you know.
