Breaking: Crist picks Martinez replacement in Senate

posted at 12:42 pm on August 28, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

BabaluBlog had it first, followed by the rest of the national media.  Val says George Lemieux calls himself a “Charlie Crist Republican,” which gives us an idea of what to expect from Mel Martinez’ temporary replacement.  Crist obviously needs a placeholder, but did he choose the right one?

LeMieux, a longtime Republican insider in the state, has served as chairman of the Broward County Republican Party, deputy state attorney general and campaign manager for Crist’s 2006 run for governor. He ran unsuccessfully for the state House in 1998.

LeMieux was among nine other candidates who made Crist’s short list, which included several former congressmen, former Jacksonville Mayor John Delaney and former state attorney general and secretary of state Jim Smith. ….

GOP state Rep. Jennifer Carroll, another contender for the vacant seat, told POLITICO that she found out LeMieux was the pick when Crist called her Friday morning to inform her.

Carroll said Crist made the pick because “he probably felt safe in knowing George, he’s been his chief of staff and confidant for years.”

I’d guess that Crist feels safe in knowing Lemieux won’t try to keep the seat next year.  Crist already has thrown his hat in the ring for the Senate seat, with Marco Rubio challenging him from the Right in the primaries.  He doesn’t need to fight his own man, who lost a bid for Congress and has no chance at all to leverage a temporary incumbency into a re-election bid.

But was that the smart call?  Crist could have picked a “Marco Rubio Republican” instead, one that might have had no risk for Crist to keep the seat but could have bolstered his standing with Florida conservatives.  That kind of strategy would allow Crist to make an argument to the broad spectrum of GOP voters; instead, he chose to remain within his narrow circle of friends and advisers.  That will hardly benefit Crist in the primaries next year, especially if Lemieux demonstrates his “Crist Republican” credentials by supporting cap-and-trade or ObamaCare, or especially Porkulus II, still rumored to be under consideration in Congress.

Rubio has plenty of ammunition already with Crist, and this may add to it.

A Charlie Crist Republican? Isn’t that just like being a Democrat?

Rubio needs a visit from Palin.

In a big way.

A Crist crony clone in the senate. Goody. He’ll probably be the jerk to vote for Obamacare.

Lemieux surely won’t run for the Senate seat…he will retreat.

RINOs are not known for the strategic prowess.

Charlie Crist Republican

So…basically a Democrat.

Crist supported porkulus and wants a cap-and-trade system. Two of the biggest items on the liberal agenda.

By the way, I look forward to the Crist apologists telling me how both Lemieux and Crist are like the second coming of Reagan.

I’m telling you, Sarah Palin will set the 2010 primaries on FIRE when she endorses and campaigns for Marco Rubio!

The primary isn’t until August, so it can be a game-changer in the late Spring

this is good news for RUBIO. now, he can say crist IS a dem-lite.

THIS should be in every campaign ad:

(and guys go easy on JetBoy when he comes here, Crist is his HERO and “the right kind of republican”. i dont know what that means — high spender, big government, high taxes, social liberal… i always thought that meant ‘democrat’)

battleoflepanto1571 on August 28, 2009 at 12:53 PM

Lemieux calls himself a “Charlie Crist Republican,”

Is that something like, a Ronald Reagan democrat?

TampaBayBull on August 28, 2009 at 12:54 PM

Marco should cash in on this kinda like how Sarah played the Murkowski appointment. I like Marco but is he attacking Crist yet?

Charlie Crist Republican crony.

battleoflepanto1571 on August 28, 2009 at 12:53 PM

The primaries might be until August, but this Lemieux dude can do quite a bit of damage before then.

If he’s like Charlie Crist, he has no problem with ever-expanding government and out-of-control spending. He’ll probably give Dems “bi-partisan” cover on at least cap-and-trade, possibly ObamaCare.

RINOs are always looking for an opportunity to bend over to libs.

amerpundit on August 28, 2009 at 12:55 PM

HornetSting on August 28, 2009 at 1:08 PM

Hey, lets just rip this guy to shreds and give the Democrats a chance to pick up yet another seat!

When push comes to shove these days, DINOs and RINOs vote along party lines. Some things have changed over the past 12 months and I think you are going to see the RINOs moving back to the right. Their move to the “center” was, I believe, a result of their reading of what they thought their constituents wanted. Now there is a lot of backlash to the Democrats ideas. The recession has energized a segment of the electorate that has been mostly silent the past several years and in many cases sat out the 2008 elections. They probably won’t be sitting at home in 2010.

These people were doing what they thought they needed to stay in office. Maybe those conditions have now changed. I don’t think we are going to see a lot of Republicans voting with the Democrats between now and 2010.

Things that were true 12 months ago may not be so true today.

crosspatch on August 28, 2009 at 1:11 PM

I don’t like Crist. I didn’t vote for him for Governor. And I won’t vote for him for Senator. And no, I’m not a Democrat, so I won’t be voting for one of those either. The debacle he caused with the doubling of the homestead exemption and after watching him suck up to and moon over Obama like some love struck school girl since the election has totally confirmed to me I made the right choice in not voting for him.

Notice that Martinez gets a replacement.

And Kennedy gets a successor.

State-run media loves the aristocratic mythology of the Kennedys, but some of us find it a little odd, maybe even borderline psychotic.

crosspatch on August 28, 2009 at 1:11 PM

This is why we need to elect based on a consistent history of conservative principles. The RINO who votes conservatively only to save his seat will vote with the other side when his seat is not in danger. Unreliable respresentative at best.

cs89 on August 28, 2009 at 1:23 PM

This was a dumb move. Crist had a responsibility to pick someone who could hit the ground running in the Senate and give Republicans not just a vote, but a voice. Florida is a big state and it needs real representation in the Senate, not just a political placeholder. This is not Delaware! This guy won’t even have learned where the bathrooms are in the Capitol by the end of next year.

Charlie Crist has put his own political considerations ahead of the needs of the people of Florida. Aside from ideological issues, this makes him a poor choice as Senator.

I saved a bogus $192.00 on my property taxes with that stupid plan but just paid more than that renewing my auto tags and driver license because the fees have literally doubled to make up the lost revenue. I tried to tell every doofis who voted for it that they will pay far more than they will save in increased taxes and fees elsewhere but they apparently did not care.

Lemieux is replacing Mel Martinez. Teddy Kennedy today could probably give Republicans more of a voice in the Senate than they got from Mel. All I’m saying here is that the bar isn’t all that high for Lemieux.

That being said, I hope the whole scheme fails. I’m not from Florida so don’t really know much about Crist other than the fact that he’s opportunistic and short-sighted. He put his own aspirations in front of doing that which would ensure the seat remains in the hands of the GOP. I don’t have much tolerance for these kinds of people.

Fact of the matter is I wish Jeb Bush were running though I think that the timing isn’t right. I’d suggest that what is going on here is infighting that is not the same thing as airing differences during the primary process.

For one thing, Crist stacked the deck so that he is essentially trying to run as an incumbent through the use of a placeholder. I don’t like these pre-ordained placeholders by Crist or by Biden. They are as offensive as the idea that the Kennedy’s have a birthright to one of the Senate seats in MA.

All that has happened here is the 2010 Senate race is starting early with over a year of Republicans sniping at one another. Good news for the Rats.

Yep. Crist is gay or at least bi, no doubt about it.

He got married for political reasons.

Rubio needs the Arctic Fox to slip across the border and help Rubio launch a GOP rebellion.

Disclosure: I am a HUGE Rubio fan.
Crist’s pick only cements my belief that he is willing to do anything to win an election-Icluding ignoring the conservative base and pandering to what he believes is a larger voting block.

Marco Rubio is the real deal and a fresh beginning for the return of conservatism to the US senate.

Rubio can win! Here is video of Rubio comparing his policies with Crist.

Not necessarily. Here in Maine, we had a remarkably nasty primary in 1996 when Susan Collins was first running for the seat. One of the people running, Bob Monks, is a slash-and-burn type of campaigner and he tried to destroy everyone that wasn’t Bob Monks, even digging up allegations of an affair between an opponent and his babysitter.

Maine is not a GOP-friendly state, but Collins beat Joe Brennan (a former Governor) relatively easily. What happens in the primary does sometimes stay in the primary.

Slublog on August 28, 2009 at 2:07 PM

even digging up allegations of an affair between an opponent and his babysitter.

I should be clear, the alleged affair was between the opponent and his babysitter, not that of Bob Monks’. I don’t think even Monks can go that low.

Slublog on August 28, 2009 at 2:07 PM

After all we’ve been through, we have yet another RINO leading the polls against a real conservative for the Senate seat. Why, because people recognize Christ’s name. I hope that Rubio has money in the coffers. Christ will be just another beltway RINO elitist in the mold of Martinez.

What is it going to take to get a real conservative elected in this country?

So far, the only Democrat who’s thrown his hat into the ring is the liberal Kendrick Meek. I’m not convinced he can win a statewide election. Rubio’s doing well by lying low and letting our spiraling situation here take care of Crist. Despite what he says, the Porkulus has not worked, although apparently some turtles in northern Florida will soon be able to cross the highway safely. I look forward to donating time and money to Rubio’s campaign when it begins in earnest.

Won’t work very well for Orange-Head. Jeb was a decent governor compared to most we’ve had in the last decades and he really stepped up during our multi-hurricane season from heck. He showed a few squishy tendencies, but not even close to the crap Crist has managed so far. :P

I agree that Crist is a Dem but even though Jeb did a desent job in Fl. he was pretty squishy in a couple of interviews last spring. I think the US has had enough Bushes for a while. Now if Palin would only make a commitment to support Rubio with a state wide swing, he would kick Crist ass.

Jeb Jr endorsed Rubio but Sr. has yet to make an endorsement. If people want to find out what Rubio is about they should watch the video of his speech at the Redstate Gathering in Ga.

Rubio also recently appeared on the cover of National Review in a favorable story.

It’s a classic.

A Charlie Crist Republican? Isn’t that just like being a Democratlarry craig republican?

peacenprosperity on August 28, 2009 at 5:06 PM

The Politco.com quotes Rubio’s reaction to Chucks pick:

This is a disappointing pick for Florida,” said former House Speaker Marco Rubio, who’s challenging Crist in the Senate primary. “George LeMieux is a talented political operative and the governor’s best friend, but that doesn’t make him the right choice to represent Florida in the Senate.”

Nelsa on August 28, 2009 at 5:24 PM

“George LeMieux is a talented political operative and the governor’s best friend, but that doesn’t make him the right choice to represent Florida in the Senate.”

Rubio sure as hell isnt the right pick either.

Squid Shark on August 28, 2009 at 9:05 PM

Where does the Republican National Committee stand on Crist’s selection? M. Steele? John Cornyn? If they aren’t against these stimulus supporting hacks, they’re with ‘em. Excuse me while I quietly slip away to pray for us all.
