Last night, Florida Democratic voters overwhelmingly elected U.S. Rep Kendrick Meek as their nominee for the U.S. Senate.
Meek trounced billionaire Jeff Greene, who was polling ahead until news broke of a tourism junket to Cuba aboard his yacht.
Greene first tried to disguise this junket as a humanitarian trip and then changed his position altogether to advocate for the unconditional lifting of tourism sanctions to Cuba.
At that point, Meek broke away and never looked back.
Is the Obama Administration paying attention?
Let's hope so -- as they are considering making these Greene-type junkets the norm.
