10 Biggest Election Wins

3. Marco Rubio (R-FL) Beats Charlie Crist (I) & Kendrick Meek (D)

The Florida Senate race got dramatic at the last minute. Not because the campaign was close—Marco Rubio seized the lead months ago and never let go—but because Bill Clinton tried to get the Democrat, Kendrick Meek, to bow out of the race in favor of former Republican Charlie Crist. That the Big Dog was willing to nose around Meek showed how weak the congressman’s campaign was. Rubio’s ascendance marks the coming of a pack of Hispanic Republicans, many of whom are not so in tune with the Latino agenda on immigration. Rep. Alcee Hastings, a Meek supporter, summed up the weird vibes surrounding Crist and Meek’s fight over the same slice of the electorate: “This is the strangest political environment that I have ever seen.” (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)
