EXTREME IMMIGRATION POSITION LIKELY COST MCCULLOM FLORIDA GOVERNOR JOB

Think Progress explores the subject. It notes the Miami Herald's interview of a prominent Miami-Dade Republican. Cuban-Americans make up a critical part of the Republican base in Florida and they are increasingly unhappy with the xenophobia expressed by many in their party.



GOP lobbyist and fundraiser Ana Navarro, who dropped her support for McCollum after he proposed a law "tougher" than the controversial immigration bill in Arizona, said McCollum's stance lowered his margin of victory in Miami-Dade -- and kept many Hispanic voters from going to the polls.


"I think he can blame [immigration]," Navarro said. "I think if you speak frankly with McCollum himself, he would admit it was a mistake."


It was McCollum's sudden support of an Arizona-style immigration bill -- after originally distancing himself from that kind of legislation -- that hurt him, said Carlos Curbelo, Republican in a runoff for a Miami-Dade School Board seat.


"That change took away much of McCollum's credibility," he said, while adding that Scott, who has attacked McCollum's immigration proposal, faces a difficult task ahead in trying to woo Florida Hispanics.

    Either way he is a goner and that is good!!! By his own admission he showed lack of good judgment while making decisions.

    No self-respecting minority should vote for GOP especially after the 14th amendment fiasco! They appeal to the lowest common denominator, white or otherwise!

    Agree. The same is to be said for Arizona, where J.Hayworth lost. We know candidates are opportunistically jumping on the anti-immigrant wagon to gain positions. Let this be a wake up call. We are no longer dismissible. We are a power to be reckoned. Our votes are our voice. Republicans beware.
