Gallagher probably ended his career by staying in this race. Too bad, because he's not a bad guy.

I wish Florida Republicans had gone with Gallagher, Gallagher wasn't the perfect candidate but at least something would of been done about homeowners insurance. As a part time resident of south Florida and homeowner, I am tired of Charlie's lip service and would like to see results.
