            GOP Working Hard To Unseat Grayson

            Alan Grayson is perhaps the Democrat Republicans would love most to defeat this year. A narrow winner in a nominally Republican district two years ago, Grayson has done everything but play it safe. He is an unabashed liberal who loves taunting the GOP, especially on issues like health care. He comes from personal wealth and has stockpiled plenty of money for his first re-election campaign. His opponent, Dan Webster, is the former House speaker and state Senate majority leader. -Ken Rudin
