Charlie Crist Was the Only Florida Candidate Who Got Major National Mainstream Media Attention
What's interesting is the strong presence of Tea Party candidates yet the absence of Marco Rubio. The media focuses on some of the more, um, colorful Tea Party candidates, such as Christine O'Donnell and Sharron Angle, and not on someone a bit more sane and competent, such as Rubio. See, this is why Tea Baggers think the media is so biased against them.
Then again, if media outlets were focused so squarely on the more controversial, outsider, conservative candidates, you'd think they might have given a bit more ink to Rick Scott.
Whatever. Pay no attention to us here in Florida, national media. It's not like we're the fourth (soon to be third) most populous state in the union that also happens to be a classic bellwether and a swing state. It's not like anything interesting ever happens politically down here.
