Martinez (Finally) Endorses McCain

Sen. Mel Martinez will endorse John McCain in Miami today, thereby guaranteeing McCain the lead spot on Florida newscasts and helping, potentially, in Central Florida, where Martinez, then the mayor of Orange County, put together a coalition of conservative white voters and Hispanics of all descent.

A new insider advantage poll has McCain and Romney exactly tied at 23.3%, followed by Rudy Giuliani at 16% and Mike Huckabee at 13%.

Also: McCain recieved the endorsement today of State Rep. Clay Ford of Gulf Breeze, FL.
