Angela Corey, whose office is prosecuting George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin, has made a decision — and not about the high profile second degree murder case. Corey, the state attorney for Duval County, Florida, has endorsed George LeMieux, a Republican running for United States Senate.
LeMieux, who was appointed by former Gov. Charlie Crist in 2009 to the Senate seat vacated by Mel Martinez in 2009, is badly trailing Connie Mack, the son of a former U.S. Senator from Florida, in the latest polls.
The LeMieux campaign made the announcement Tuesday, saying in their press release:
“For years, I have known George LeMieux and seen the positive impact he has had on our state and nation,” said State Attorney Angela Corey. “During his time as the Deputy Attorney General, George fought for justice and successfully argued a death penalty case before the US Supreme Court. While serving in the Senate, George LeMieux made reducing the debt his top priority and showed true leadership. George has always been a friend to Northeast Florida and I look forward to seeing him serve us once again in the US Senate.”
