McCalister's Troubles Continue To Mount
Retired Army Col. Mike McCalister was the surprising leader of the GOP pack in an early August Quinnipiac University Florida Senate poll.
But things haven't been so rosy for him since.
The underdog candidate's military record has come under scrutiny from a veterans group, and the most recent Sachs/Mason Dixon poll had him at only 2 percent. Plus, the Miami Herald posted video earlier this month of an aide repeatedly trying to shepherd the candidate away from a Herald reporter questioning McCalister about a statement he previously made about testifying before Congress.
Now, the same Herald reporter is reminding readers there are pictures from years ago of that aide -- former congressional candidate Jason Sager -- dressed as Che Guevara, as part of an effort to mock liberal protesters.
Hernando Today explains how the photos became an issue in Sager's 2010 losing bid against now GOP Rep. Rich Nugent.
