What does it say about the current crop of Republican US Senate candidates when Jeff Hewell, the state party’s treasurer, isn’t sold on any of them?

“We need some more candidates who can get people fired up. I don’t see the voters getting fired up over the current crop,” said Jeff Howell, a Tallahassee lawyer who is treasurer of the state party. “I mean, they’re all good individuals, but I don’t see anybody setting the world on fire.”
