Remember Mississippi? Jeb Bush and Right to Rise hope you forgot.
In the Mississippi Senate primary of 2014, the state establishment simply could not tolerate their preferred candidate (Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) 36%) losing. So the Cochrans and the Barbours got together and pulled every dirty trick they could come up with, trying to smear Chris McDaniel. This time it’s the Florida establishment at work. They watched [mc_name name=’Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)’ chamber=’senate’ | Read More »

Alan Grayson drags Patrick Murphy hard to the Left on Social Security.
Moral of the story: when a Democrat tells you that he or she is a liberal, the Democrat is telling you the truth. And when a Democrat tells you that he or she is a moderate or conservative, the Democrat is telling you a liiiiiieeeeee. As you’ll discover, the second that the lie becomes too awkward to maintain.

Daniel Webster as Speaker
Two days ago, Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) 72% was a long shot candidate for Speaker of the House with barely any press mentions. He completely failed to gain traction. But with Chaffetz in the race and Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 56% making verbal gaffes undermining the Benghazi investigation, Rep. Daniel Webster (R-FL) 72% is suddenly in | Read More »

Marco Rubio Speaks at #RSG15
The story of Marco Rubio is one that is tied closely to the success of the RedState Gathering. Back at the first Gathering in 2009, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% was a former Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives drawing about 1% of the vote in a Republican primary opinion poll versus Governor Charlie Crist. He won the primary election against | Read More »
Ron DeSantis For Senate
In February of 2009, I declared the Florida Senate race between Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% 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) 51% 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.

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 »
