The Democrat Party is fortunate that Grayson is able to raise his own money, which makes it easy for them to avoid this race. As for the rumor floating around that Obama will be coming to Orlando to stump on Grayson’s behalf, don’t expect that to happen now.
Grayson has pretty much destroyed his brand identity in American politics. The radicals on the far left still love him, but that base of support doesn’t equate to very many votes come November 2nd. If Grayson hopes to pull this one out, he’ll have to raid every cemetery in district 8 to generate the needed votes – not that he won’t try!

The controversy over the ad ignited a boost in fundraising for Webster’s campaign.
