Mel Martinez

Former HUD Secretary Mel Martinez is running for the Senate in Florida in a very competitive race:

Ethnicity is only part of the appeal. Martinez claims he's plainly the most electable candidate in the Republican field. He draws interest in Miami, but actually calls Orlando home, essentially giving him two bases in the state.

He's also conservative — pro-life, pro-gun, and in favor of a constitutional amendment on marriage. "I would not have favored a marriage amendment but for that marriage-license nonsense in San Francisco," he says. He also has criticized Jeb Bush's recent move to give drivers licenses to illegal immigrants.
