South Florida radio talk show host Joyce Kaufman has endorsed George LeMieux in the Florida US Senate race.

Ms. Kaufman, a strong supporter of Congressman Allen West, is a favorite of the South Florida tea party movement. Ms. Kaufman had been a supporter of Adam Hasner; He dropped out of Senate race to seek Congressman West’s current seat.

This endorsement comes as a bit of a surprise. LeMieux has never been a favorite of the tea parties in south Florida. So this definitely welcomed news for Team LeMieux.
