Alan Grayson told reporters on Tuesday they he’ll probably be back to run again.
Alan Grayson, the highest profile Florida Democrat in Congress to lose Tuesday, blamed his loss on poor Democratic turnout and implied he’d likely seek a return to public office.
“Anything is possible,” he told the Buzz. “I’m the only Democrat who’s been able to win this seat in 36 years. One would imagine that at least the party would like me to take a shot at it again.”

“I’m not upset. I’m proud,” he said of his loss to Republican Dan Webster. “I’m happy about the way that we did the job. We saw a lot of congressmen who kissed up to lobbyists who went down in stinging defeats yesterday. A lot of congressmen who tried to spin, and cut concerns and duck questions and never take a stand. (Republicans) had to spend more than $2 million in special interest money to take me out.”
…”In context, I think they were all truthful statements. Knuckle-dragging Neanderthals is a very good description of the way that Republicans have in fact blocked the president’s agenda the past two years to the enormous detriment of the country. They simply have been obstructionists. I happened to put it into colorful terms.”
Maybe this clown should apply for a job with the DNC? He’d be a perfect spokesman for their offensive, arrogant, failed and socialist agenda.
