Update on Mel Martinez Resignation: Jim Smith, Come on Down!

Word on the street in Tallahassee is that Governor Crist intends to appoint Jim Smith as Mel Martinez’s replacement.

Smith, a former Attorney General, is now a lobbyist. He’s also the Chairman of FSU.

How fitting.

He could save everyone a lot of trouble and money by just going on and putting Marco Rubio in the Senate and let him establish some seniority before he beats everyone in 2010 to get there anyway.
