You want a campaign team? I'll give you a campaign team!


I have to say, it has been quite entertaining watching certain politicos and journalists go on and on about how Herman Cain's campaign "didn't have anyone in Florida." Well, there's a big, huge, gigantic difference between "we don't have anyone" and "ha ha, we aren't telling you yet!"

Look for an announcement soon about some top-tier political talent joining Herman Cain's Florida campaign team.
Statewide chairs: Former St. Petersburg Mayor (and Mitt Romney supporter) Rick Baker; former State Sen. (and expected Rick Perry supporter) Carey Baker; former Jeb Bush chief Kathleen Shanahan; state Rep. Scott Plakon, R-Longwood.
Tampa-based media consultant Adam Goodman is a senior strategist and media adviser and Arlene DiBenigno, a veteran of Jeb Bush, Charlie Crist, and Rick Scott campaigns, is another senior strategist.
Deborah Cox-Roush, former state GOP vice chairwoman and current Hillsborough County Republican chairwoman, is director of county chairs...

UPDATE: Debbie Cox-Roush is resigning her position as Hillsborough County Republican Chairman to join the Cain campaign. I applaud her decision: too often in recent years we have had conflicts with party leaders playing favorites in primaries (Jim Greer and Charlie Crist come to mind), so severing ties with the HCRP is absolutely the ethical thing to do. You can read Debbie's resignation letter here.
