From Darcy Richardson at Uncovered Politics:
Alex Sink’s chances of becoming the first Democrat to win the Florida governorship in sixteen years suffered a blow of sorts on Sunday afternoon when former Democratic rival Brian P. Moore endorsed the independent candidacy of Miami’s Farid A. Khavari.
In endorsing the University of Bremen-educated economist, Moore said that Khavari was “more of a Democrat than the Democratic nominee.”
A Pied Piper of progressive politics in the Sunshine State, the 67-year-old Moore polled nearly a quarter of the votes — garnering an eye-opening 201,705 votes — against the heavily-favored Sink in the August 24 Democratic primary. Moore, who proudly wears his liberalism on his sleeve, spent approximately one-tenth of one percent of Sink’s $7.8 million war chest in his quixotic quest for the Democratic nomination.
Moore’s remarks were made during a presentation of the “Khavari Economic Plan for Florida,” a three-hour event that drew more than fifty people.
