In an interview with Sunshine State News — his first since the elections — former Senator George LeMieux makes it clear he would have been a better candidate than Connie Mack against Democrat Bill Nelson.
Sunshine State News: Do you believe that the Senate election would have turned out differently had youbeen the Republican nominee?
George LeMieux: Of course I do! Anybody who ran for office and tells you differently shouldn’t have run. I think the race would have been a lot closer; I believe I was the best person to face Sen. Nelson. It would have presented a really good comparison, I believe.
But that’s not the way it worked out, and it’s no use crying over spilled milk. We need to go forward, and hopefully now our lead in both parties will come together and work on these tremendous challenges that our country is facing.
