Controversy in House District 58 race, Charlie Crist loses another straw poll, and high speed rail: Mitch Perry Report 1.12.10

Two weeks from today, voters in Florida House District 58 will go to the polls to select Democratic and Republican candidates to run in February to replace Mike Scionti in that seat.  Though turnout will probably be low, the intensity is high.  And the issue of race is playing a part.
