Regardless of what you think of former fire-breathing Congressman Alan Grayson, the man has a huge and undeniable set of Matzo balls for primary challenging his successor, Rep. Darren Soto for congress.Yep, Grayson is back.
He never really left. He’s just been somewhat quietly been fundraising and planning his takeover of the Democratic world.
“I don’t need anyone’s permission to run for office. What I’ve done is ask the people… “I can run anywhere in the state; I could run from Key West to Pensacola.”-Alan Grayson on WFTV in Orlando
Grayson’s announcement to challenge Soto is no surprise to some of us politicos, considering that over his career in politics, Grayson has shown that he can become unhinged, as well as show flashes of political brilliance.
As you can imagine, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is not all that happy with Grayson’s decision to challenge Soto.Soto is confident he will beat Grayson, telling the POLITICO that “this coalition propelled us to victory in 2016 as Grayson was annihilated in his primary,” adding, “we will also have the resources and support for victory once again.”
While it seems as if the DCCC and “elites,” as Grayson calls them, are backing Soto, don’t count angry Grayson out. He can raise money. He’s proven that.
