Sometimes, the political gods smile upon us. This is one of those times.

From Roll Call:

Rep. Alan Grayson, a liberal firebrand whose outspokenness irks members of his own party, will announce a bid for Florida’s open Senate seat Thursday morning on a Florida TV station, according to a source with knowledge of Grayson’s plans.

Grayson’s entry into the race could turn into a messy primary with fellow Florida Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy, national Democrats’ pick for this competitive seat, vacant this cycle thanks to GOP Sen. Marco Rubio’s presidential bid.

Some Democrats fear Grayson could be problematic for the party as it seeks to net the five seats necessary to wrest Senate control from Republicans. President Barack Obama carried Florida twice, making it a prime pickup opportunity, especially in an open-seat race.

“Problematic”? That’s putting it mildly. The Dems have got their work cut out for them.

Not for Republicans!

Wethinks you’re correct.
