Florida Democrats pick a loser

Florida Democrats on Saturday chose as their new chairman Rod Smith, a former state senator from Gainesville who faces a major challenge rebuilding a party ravaged by election losses.

A fiery former prosecutor and two-time statewide candidate, Smith seizes the party's reins at a critical juncture: Florida's 29 electoral votes will be vital in the next presidential election, Republicans will redraw the state's political districts, and U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, the party's lone remaining elected statewide officeholder, faces a tough reelection challenge in 2012.


Florida Democrats should realize that a two time statewide loser does not know how to win.
