As the U.S. Sugar deal with the State of Florida continues to evolve, more state politicos are going on the record about the controversial deal that is fully backed by Governor Charlie Crist. Many believe that this deal primarily benefits U.S. Sugar, its farm contingent, and their attorneys while putting taxpayers on the hook for hundreds of millions of dollars . The Shark Tank will be keeping tabs on any new developments in regards to these negotiations. I recently caught up with Sharon Merchant in West Palm Beach on Monday and asked her about her thoughts on the land proposal. Sharon Merchant is a conservative candidate running as a Republican for State Senate in District 27.
