Warning: the following is real inside baseball stuff.

I mean, this is peanuts and popcorn and Cracker Jack inside baseball material. 

In the special election for House District 2 — the dates for which were set yesterday by Governor Rick Scott — Tea Party candidate Mike Hill has signed Tim Baker of Data Targeting as his general consultant. Spokesman-to-the-conservative-stars Brian Hughes is also working with Hill, presumably on media strategy.

And judging from an email I received yesterday, Southern Campaign Resources, i.e. Rockie Pennington and Mark Zubaly are working with establishment candidate Ed Gray.

Yesterday I noted that Chip Case, Andy Palmer, Ryan Wiggins and Rick Wilson are helping Jack Nobles.
