Florida billionaire Jeff Greene was not a particularly impressive candidate in 2010, losing the Democratic Senate primary by 26 points despite spending nearly $24 million of his own money on the race.
But just in case there are any Florida Democrats hoping to recruit another billionaire for a future political race, they'll have several to choose from.
The St. Petersburg Times has an interesting breakdown of the 27 Floridians who made Forbes' latest list of billionaires. 14 are Republicans, 10 (including Greene) are Democrats, one is an independent and 2 are not registered.
Gov. Rick Scott (R), while also considerably wealthy, did not make the list, as he is multimillionaire, not a billionaire.
