The Sunshine State is buzzing over Republican Florida Senator Mel Martinez's sudden resignation. Governor Charlie Crist, the Republican front-runner for this Senate seat in 2010, must pick a replacement who won't challenge him, and won't hurt him in a contested GOP primary. Joining The Takeaway to talk about this is Joshua Johnson of WLRN-Miami Herald News, and Al Cardenas, former chair of the Republican Party of Florida. He's also a good friend of Senator Mel Martinez.
