Jeb Bush endorses Marco, Oil spill continues to dominate Florida news, and does Arizona's new controversial immigration law seal the deal for Tampa to host 2012 RNC? Mitch Perry Report 5.5.10

Republican National Committee members meet next week to talk about who's hosting the 2012 Republican Convention.  Tampa was already looking good.  Now that Arizona has become ground zero in the immigration debate, you can check off Phoenix as one of the area's only sources of competition;
