GOP Chairman Backs Down

Looking to avoid an all-out rebellion as local parties across the state from Duval to Palm Beach have passed resolutions stating that they will not interfere in Republican primaries, State Party Chair Jim Greer has announced that he is backing off efforts to endorse Charlie Crist in his primary battle with former House Speaker Marco Rubio.  Greer, a long-time ally of Governor Crist complained that he had thought his behind the scenes maneuvering was “confidential” and complained that information had been leaked to the press for “reasons unknown to him.”

Greer also went on to defend his appearance at a rally for Bill McCollum while Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson was still considering a race for Governor.  

The full text of his statement can be viewed here.
