On the trail in Florida, Danny O’Donnell stumps for Annette Taddeo

Two of my favorite people were on the campaign trail together in Florida today. New York Assemblyman Danny O’Donnell is in South Florida to get out the vote — just like he did in 2004. He’s finding a lot more support for the Democratic ticket this time around. And, he is also helping Annette Taddeo, who is running for Congress in Florida’s 18th Congressional District (which includes South Beach and Key West.) Annette is running against Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, a Bush-loving Republican. In fact, one of the few times Bush showed his face on the trail this fall was for Ileana.

Danny loves Annette, too. It’s hard not to love her. She can win her race. Early voting is through the roof in Florida and looks good for Democrats. I predict it will be one of the big upsets on Tuesday night.
