If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.
Sen. Greg Evers, R-Baker has a familiar face in his office. Former Rep. Dave Murzin, who once wanted the seat Evers is in, is now a legislative aide to Evers.
Murzin was term limited in 2010 and was running against Evers, then also in the House, in the GOP primary for the seat being vacated by former Sen. Durrell Peaden. Murzin dropped out of that race in May, 2010, though to run for an Escambia County commission seat, and when he lost a multiple candidate election in August of that year it was the first time he’d been out of politics since college.
