Perhaps, Webster will get consideration for the White House Chief of Staff position Rahm Emanuel is rumored to be vacating this week.
Seriously speaking, it’s encouraging to see this race get national attention, which is needed to compete with Grayson’s deep pockets. Nonetheless, polling seems to indicate that the Webster team is making good decisions. A trend that needs to continue!

Webster Raises Off Grayson Attack
By Alexander Burns
Former Florida state Sen. Dan Webster isn’t just pushing back on an attack ad from Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson labeling him “Taliban Dan” – he’s also raising money online at a quick clip.
Webster’s website now features a front-page debunking of Grayson’s ad, which edited a clip of Webster urging religious conservatives, “Don’t pick the ones [Bible verses] that say, ‘She should submit to me,’” to make it look like he just said: “She should submit to me.”
The Republican sent out an appeal Tuesday declaring Grayson’s ad “ludicrous and false” – and pulled in about $70,000 online as of midnight. That’s a big sum for a candidate who entered the race late and had $105,000 on hand as of Aug. 4.
Grayson’s attack – the latest of several no-holds-barred assaults on Webster – has drawn attention from both national media and national Republican leaders. South Dakota Sen. John Thune, appearing Tuesday night on Fox News, declared the ad a “sign of desperation.”
“These are people who are desperately trying to hang on to power,” Thune said. “That sort of selective thing and that sort of personal attack, there’s no place fortunate politics.
Still, the race appears to be moving in the right director for the Republican, who prevailed over a pack of primary opponents with support from former Gov. Jeb Bush. A Sunshine State News poll released Tuesday night showed Webster with a seven-point lead over Grayson, putting him ahead 43 percent to 36 percent.
