It's official! Marco Rubio is a viable and strong conservative candidate for the US senate race in Florida. Crist now leads by only 10 points. A 46 point negative differential for Crist since January. That is a HUGE number in what is becoming a close race with another 9 months to go.
Rubio has consistently gained ground against his moderate rival Charlie Crist.
Without a doubt, this race is shaping up to be a contest between the "GOP Establishment" and conservative base. So far the base is not backing down.
