Craig Miller Can Make A Mean Pizza But Will Voters Buy It?

OrlandoSentenil.com reports, “Former restaurant company CEO Craig Miller is trying to distinguish himself from other Republicans running for the U.S. Senate in 2012 by adopting a page from Bob Graham’s successful ‘Workday’ playbook: dedicating a couple days a month to working others’ jobs.”

“Miller began his ‘Miller on Main Street’ strategy Thursday by working the lunch shift in the kitchen of the Boardwalk Pizza restaurant in southern Seminole County. For five hours he made pizzas, rubbed elbows and tried to begin developing the image of a man comfortable on Main Street. Graham used a similar technique for decades, taking day-long jobs as everything from a teacher to a garbage collector. For Graham, it worked. No one ever thought of him as an elitist, out of touch with regular folks, even though he was from an old, wealthy, powerful South Florida family. Graham Workadayed himself into two terms as Florida governor and three as a U.S. Senator from Florida. Miller’s trying to gain some name reconition and distinguish himself from the apparent front runners, former U.S. Sen. George Lemieux and former state House Majority Leader Adam Hasner, as well as those mulling the race, like U.S. Rep. Connie Mack.  They all want to take on incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson in 2012.”
