July 28: Senate President Mike Haridopolos who dropped out of the 2012 Senate race last week said that he won't support Adam Hasner for the Senate in the next year election. “I can tell you one thing: I will not be supporting Adam Hasner for the Senate. We need to be a party of big ideas, and not legislating one way and running another,” Haridopolos said. “I think Bill Nelson will be very difficult to defeat, and the candidate who defeats him will have to be on the road 24-7,” he added.

July 18: Mike Haridopolos, the Florida state senate president has dropped out of the race for GOP nomination for the 2012 senate election.
