Democrat firebrand and Rep. Alan Grayson is out there on Twitter pushing the reasons why he should run for the U.S. Senate in 2016.
The Democrat establishment in Washington, D.C. doesn’t want him, they’re pick is Rep. Patrick Murphy.
But that’s OK by Grayson, who doesn’t care what anyone says about him, or his potential senate run, because if he runs for the Senate, we will be able to race the money needed to compete.
Don’t forget that Grayson would also fund his own campaign.
Grayson has been pushing an April 2015 Quinnipiac Poll that has him beating Republican Senate frontrunner, Rep. Ron DeSantis, by six percentage points, and has him within striking distance of Murphy.
Now Grayson is pushing letters written by his supporters and constituents, in making his case to run in a Democratic primary race for the U.S. Senate against Rep. Murphy.

Grayson tweeted a link to a letter that was written by Don McKenzie of Winter Haven, Florida.
Wow, what a hatchet job Associated Press reporter Brendan Farrington did on U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson in The Ledger [“Democrats Hope to Win Rubio’s Senate Seat,” June 22]. Had the writer done one whit of research about Mr. Grayson’s record over the past two terms, he would have discovered the most productive bipartisan record of any current house member of either party.
He has successfully passed nearly a dozen pieces of legislation with support from both sides of the aisle. All these people cited as being against Mr. Grayson are mostly responsible for the miserable record of Florida Democratic Party over the past decade.
They completely lost it in the last election, trying to imitate the success of President Barack Obama by adopting his complex information system/grass roots system and failed miserably, because they had neither the resources nor the intelligence to pull it off.
Most of the Democratic establishment of Central Florida really like Alan Grayson. They cherish his candor. He would take the primary in a heartbeat because the activists in the party know where he stands. I’ll take my chances and trust he will then be able to win over a general election voters.
While Mr. Murphy is a nice young man, he has accomplished little, nor does he seem to stand for much. We tried electing a former Republican for governor and you see how that worked out. I want a real Democrat that I can vote for.
When will Grayson make up his mind on whether he runs for the U.S. Senate or not?
Tick Tock, Tick Tock.
