On Tuesday, the Republican Party of Florida's chairman Jim Greer announced his resignation.

Pressure had been mounting for Greer's ouster from the far-right of Florida's GOP.

The complaints centered on Greer's party spending, and his support for Gov. Charlie Crist (the more moderate candidate) over Marco Rubio, Crist's challenger in the U.S. Senate race.

Crist picked Greer for the position in 2007, and has continued to defend him.
