Ron DeSantis for Congress in FL-6
Editor’s note: Here is my latest endorsement on behalf of The Madison Project Florida has been shaken up by redistricting more than most states, leaving behind a number of open and newly drawn districts. While the state sports a large Republican delegation of 19, only a few of them are conservative. This year provides us with an opportunity to invigorate the delegation with some bold-colored | Read More »
Chauncey Goss in FL-19
Let me join the growing chorus of support for Chauncey Goss in Florida’s 19th Congressional District. The son of former CIA Director and Congressman Porter Goss, Chauncey has decided to get into politics. He gets it right on budget issues and is not willing to join the growing voices among Republicans in Washington flirting with tax increases and other ways to boost income into Washington’s | Read More »
The Left’s expected, contemptible, and blatant hypocrisy over ALEC and stand-your-ground laws.
I’m not really all that into blogging about the Zimmerman/Martin shooting. From what I can tell, what happened was that there was an confrontation that might have very well been avoidable; it ended with a genuinely tragic ending; and that there were actually pretty much no wider partisan implications at all, despite the attempts of the Online Left to fit a Latino Democrat onto the | Read More »

Interesting: epithet-tossing Jewish liaison Dani Gilbert daughter of Obama bundlers.
Via Legal Insurrection comes this interesting story about DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her rather embarrassing Jewish liaison Dani Gilbert. As you may remember, Ms. Gilbert had some unfortunate comments surface from her Facebook page – essentially, stuff from 2006 where she used admittedly self-derogatory religious/cultural epithets. At the time, I wondered when exactly DWS had hired the young woman – just on the | Read More »
DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz stupidly forgets comparing Voter ID to Jim Crow.
Let me rephrase that: she abjectly, amazingly, incredibly stupidly forgets comparing Voter ID to Jim Crow laws, to the point of huffily walking off when reminded about that particular bit of hyper-partisan stupidity. Watch. Watch. For those without video, that shows a clip of… Debbie Wasserman Schultz claiming that she ever made the above comparison, followed by a clip of… Debbie Wasserman Schultz explicitly making | Read More »
Alan Grayson requests that Rick Santorum, ahem, ‘die quickly.’
That’s the most likely conclusion that one can draw, amazingly enough. Alan Grayson is typically precisely the sort of would-be domestic Taliban who might advocate the death of political… well, not ‘opponents.’ Rick Santorum is currently about three levels’ worth of influence above Grayson, and it’s Grayson’s fondest wish to shrink that disparity to two. So it’s very likely that the former Congressman from Florida | Read More »
Alan Grayson tries the Creigh Deeds electoral strategy…
…to wit, getting into the news by hitting stuff with his car*: Former U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson crashed into a Lynx bus in downtown Orlando about noon Saturday. [snip] Investigators said Grayson was driving a Mercedes, when he ran a red light and hit the bus. Glenn Reynolds notes that disregarding public safety to the point of injuring others while driving an expensive automobile to | Read More »
DCCC using Alan “K Street Whore” Grayson to fund other candidates?
This particular hypocrisy on the part of the Democratic party is almost… pure in its brazenness, really. It goes like so: the Democrats have put together a program called ‘Majority Makers’ where Democrats with good fundraising ability who are expected to win their elections are being tapped to spread some of that raised money around to candidates who aren’t doing so well. This in itself | Read More »
RS at CPAC: Trey Radel (R CAND, FL-14 PRI).
Trey is running in Connie Mack’s seat; Connie Mack, of course, is running in the FL-SEN Republican primary in order to make doubly sure that none of us ever have to remember which Senator Nelson was which, ever again. Trey and I didn’t really discuss that; but we did talk about the race, and CPAC. Trey’s site is here. Moe Lane (crosspost)
RS at CPAC: Rep. Sandy Adams (R, FL-24)
Rep. Sandy Adams is a freshman legislator who is now running for re-election in the new FL-07 district (the maps were thoroughly shifted around as per the redistricting process in Florida); as a result, she’ll be running a contested primary with Rep. John Mica. Sandy and I talked a bit about that race, as well as CPAC generally: Rep. Adams’ site is here. Moe Lane | Read More »
RS at CPAC: EJ Otero (R CAND, FL-11 PRI).
Florida is volatile, this cycle: the combination of redistricting, the adding of two seats, and the status of Florida as a battleground state has caused for a lot of jockeying for positioning and seats. It was pretty much a relief to speak to Col. E.J. Otero, USAF (Ret.), who simply wants to toss out the liberal Kathy Castor from the 11th district. As usual, we | Read More »
RS at CPAC: Karen Harrington (R CAND, FL-20 PRI)
This is from yesterday: Karen Harrington is goig up against Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who doesn’t quite have the district that she used to. We’ve talked before, and she had some thoughts on CPAC this time: Karen’s site is here. Moe Lane (crosspost)
