Ron DeSantis For Senate
In February of 2009, I declared the Florida Senate race between Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% and Charlie Crist a “hill to die on.” Rubio was at three percent in the polls. Charlie Crist was the sitting Republican Governor of Florida. And the entire weight of the Republican Party was behind Crist. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) 53% and the | Read More »
Charlie Crist is almost certainly going to run for FL-13. …As a Democrat. …I THINK?
If Charlie Crist gets elected, he’ll have no principles whatsoever and a need for attention. Translation: great fodder for political writers.

On H1B Visas: Scott Walker Will Fight For American Workers, Senators Cruz and Rubio Not So Much.
Why Scott Walker FLip-Flopped. One of the few intelligent and worthwhile things that John Maynard Keynes contributed to society is the following quote “When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?” Governor Scott Walker’s information has recently changed. Remember that Governor Walker had the guts to back down the Progressive Establishment in The Democratic Party | Read More »

The Jacksonville Panic
Several consultants, Democrat and Republican, clued me in last year on a race that has sailed under the radar in the United States: the Jacksonville, FL mayoral race. Democrats and Republicans alike tell me that Barack Obama used Jacksonville as a testing ground for his campaign strategy and technology in helping Democrats take the city. Registered Democrats outnumber their Republican counterparts, but the city has | Read More »
I Come to Praise Jeb Bush and Bobby Jindal
As willing as I am to offer up criticism of Bush and the other 2016 candidates, I also think it is worth praising them when they are willing to take a position that is unpopular in the current cultural zeitgeist of the Circle of Jerks in the press corps. One of those issues is religious liberty. Another is free expression. In the past seventy-two hours, | Read More »
Ron DeSantis Would Be a Great Pick
Congressman Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) 88% is thinking about running for the Senate in Florida. That’d be a great pick up and a solid replacement for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92%. I’ve known Ron for a while. We backed him here at RedState when he ran for Congress the first time. He has proven himself to be a dependable | Read More »
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% remains a conservative favorite in 2016. In 2012, the establishment backed his Senate opponent in Texas, then Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. The conservative grassroots backed Cruz and pushed him over the finish line. Cruz has since remained a favorite of the grassroots with a continually antagonist relationship with the Republican establishment. In 2010, [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul | Read More »
Congratulations GOVERNOR Rick Scott on Defeating Charlie Crist
It’s been just short of week since Rick Scott destroyed the political career of Charlie Crist and I still get a smile thinking about it. Four years ago, I was one of very, very few conservatives who dared even be nice to Rick Scott. His primary opponent had been a congressman and an impeachment manager in the Clinton impeachment. Virtually all of the major conservative | Read More »
12 year old Florida kid runs lemonade stand; municipal officials… *don’t* shut it down.
So, there’s a 12 year old kid in Dunedin, Florida with a lemonade/baked goods neighborhood stand… you know where this is going, right? Of course you do. This isn’t the first story of this type that you’d be hearing. Suffice it to say… look, this guy? Don’t be this guy. In a scenario reminiscent of the relationship between fictional characters Dennis the Menace and Mr. Wilson, | Read More »

Charlie vs. Charlie: ObamaCare
Charlie Crist isn’t getting away from his flip-flop on ObamaCare. The citizens of Florida deserve to know what Charlie thinks on ObamaCare, and not only is this article going to expose him on his major flip-flop, it’s going to expose the damage the “affordable care act” has inflicted on our state. The ACA is a major failure, but not as big a failure as Charlie’s | Read More »
