West Palm Beach, Florida (CNN) - Jeff Greene has deep pockets, and just hours before the polls closed Tuesday in Florida, this billionaire real estate investor, turned unlikely Democratic Senate contender, vowed to dig deep if he wins his party's nomination.

That's right - continue to dip into his personal fortune to fund his campaign.

"I will spend whatever it takes to get our message out, and it will be a clear message: a self-made businessman gets results against two career Republican politicians, Charlie Crist and Marco Rubio," Greene said in an interview Tuesday afternoon.

    ANYONE voting for these greedy profiteers, based on their wealth and NOT their credentials, deserve to have their vote lost. Both the candidate and the voter violate the highest preimminence that those with the credentials to lead and NOT the MONEY should be elected.

    Incredibile ignorance and arrogance.
    No wonder America is nearly lost because of thise willing to sell her out for their OWN personal gain or to NOT DO DUE DILIGENCE TO uncover the dirt of these provate criminals hoping to steal and pillage from taxpayers.

    WAKE UP AMERICA. Take America back.
