Second GOPer signs up to face Rep. Boyd
Republicans have signed up another challenger to a Blue Dog Democrat, as attorney Charlie Ranson on Friday announced his candidacy against Rep. Allen Boyd (D-Fla.).

Ranson joins GOP businessman Steve Southerland, who runs a chain of funeral homes and announced for the race last week.

"Were facing a crisis today from professional politicians who believe that the American way is to spend money we dont have, allow government to tax us out of money we dont have, and burden our children with debt they cant possibly repay, Ranson said.

Ranson is a former assistant Attorney General in the state and was staff director for regulatory reform in the Florida House.

Boyd already faces a primary challenge from state Senate Minority Leader Al Lawson, but Lawson hasn't raised much money so far.
