Florida Politics: Death Wish

I spent the past week in Florida (more on this later), so I learned a lot about the candidates running for Governor and Senator for yesterday's primary elections. However, that's not the point of this post. Did you know that the Commissioner of Florida's Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is Charles Bronson? Bronson's name is on a sticker located on every gas station pump in the state.

So I did a little more research and discovered that the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner is an elected position. Obviously. If you had a choice of voting for Charles Bronson or someone else with a generic name like Eric Copeland, of course you're going to select Bronson. What name recognition!

I just wonder who could ever defeat Bronson. Clint Eastwood, John Wayne, and Jack Nicholson would all be strong opponents. Maybe Scott Baio?
