The Sunshine News has a blog article on the Constitution Party US Senate candidate in Florida, Bernie DeCastro. He claims to be the most conservative candidate in the race, specifically calling out Republican Marco Rubio as too liberal.

Is Florida looking for a U.S. Senate candidate who is even more conservative than Marco Rubio? Bernie DeCastro, the Constitution Party candidate, thinks so. DeCastro was in Tallahassee today to fill out his paperwork to run for Senate.

The Santa Maria Republican will appear on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” to discuss Proposition 14, the open-primary measure on November’s ballot that he has pushed. It’s unclear how much interest Colbert will have in that; wonky election rules aren’t especially funny. So it will be interesting to see how the earnest-seeming Maldonado interacts with the off-kilter Colbert.
