The guys at Newsmax usually do a fine job, but as I noted here a few weeks ago, they were really out of line to swing all their resources on behalf of a broken-down, compromised "conservative" like Bill McCollum in his GOP primary fight for governor of Florida. As we know, Rick Scott beat McCollum, who then stomped off without any congratulatory phone call, or even endorsement.

Until now (Oct. 24):

Breaking from

McCollum Endorses Rick Scott

Florida's Republican Attorney General Bill McCollum is urging voters to cast their votes for Rick Scott in the upcoming gubernatorial election.

McCollum had narrowly lost to Scott in the hard-fought GOP primary.

On Friday, McCollum issued the following statement:

“Florida is facing a critical time. Our state needs conservative leaders who will grow our economy and create jobs. We need merit pay and an end to teacher tenure in our public schools, major litigation reform, smaller government, low taxes and a repeal of Obamacare. With this in mind, I will cast my vote for Rick Scott for governor. It’s the better choice for Florida.”

How did I call it back on August 24?:

"Look for Newsmax to develop amnesia about its gag-reflex shilling and end up adoring Rick Scott."

And see how Newsmax came around on October 19:

Scott opposed Obamacare, has called for a cut in property tax rates, and wants to eliminate Florida’s business income tax over seven years. He has received an “A” rating from both the National Rifle Association and the Florida Right to Life organization.

The choice is clear for us: Florida needs Rick Scott, and so does the Republican Party.

Early voting has started in Florida. Be sure to vote and be sure to vote for the future of conservative values nationally by voting for Rick Scott.

Don't worry, Newsmax, better late than never. And we don't hold grudges here. ;- )
