Clinton tried to get Meek out of FL-SEN race.
So, let’s sum up the White House’s thinking on how to salvage the Florida Senate race, five days before the election. They had a choice between: The guy who is a former state trooper, former state Democratic legislator, four-term Democratic Congressman, and the duly-chosen Democratic nominee for FL-SEN black; and The guy who is a long-term Republican legislator and current governor of Florida who has | Read More »
CNN calls Alex Sink (D CAND, FL-GOV) a liar.
And no, it wasn’t Erick who did that. It was John King. Background: there was a debate on Monday night between Alex Sink and Republican Rick Scott. There had been an agreement beforehand that there would be no notes or outside help… and Sink promptly ignored said agreement by taking advice from a campaign staffer via cell phone. The staffer has since been fired; and | Read More »
We Helped Him Start His Campaign. Let’s Help Him Finish It.
It was March 19, 2009. I got on the front page of RedState and said Marco Rubio was my choice to be Senator in Florida and we should not be going all in with a guy like Charlie Crist. Rubio was at 4% in the polls. Everybody laughed and thought I was crazy. He who laughs last . . . We helped Marco Rubio start | Read More »
Alex Sink Drips
Alex Sink and Rick Scott agreed before hand to the rules of their debate. One of the rules was that they’d not take notes messages or converse with staff during the debate. Alex Sink, during the debate, sung her own praises about how she always follows the rules. Then her makeup artist came in and handed her a note with a message. During the debate. | Read More »
I believe that the FL-SEN race is now over.
When your second-place candidate (Crist) is reduced to heckling the first-place candidate (RUBIO) during an actual debate you can safely assume that the second-place candidate has given up on trying to win and is now merely trying to see just how spectacular a fireball that he can generate on impact. So, how spectacular? Answer? Quite spectacular, really. Then again, Crist was always a bit… gassy. | Read More »
Support Allen West in Florida’s Twenty-Second Congressional District
One of the most exciting House races is in South Florida between Young Gun candidate Allen West and Democratic incumbent Ron Klein. After campaigning with Allen today, I can confirm the excitement toward his campaign. Retired Lieutenant Colonel Allen West is an internet phenomenon who has fired up the grassroots. He’s attracted thousands of fans on Facebook and Twitter. You may have been one of | Read More »
Support David Rivera in Florida’s Twenty-Fifth Congressional District
David Paul Kuhn at RealClearPolitics wrote that seniors are set to vote at historic levels this election. “And it’s bad news for Democrats. They support Republicans more than any other age group,” he writes. Can you blame them? After all, Congressional Democrats cut Medicare by $500 billion to finance their government takeover of health care. Seniors are also seeing the growing debt weigh down on | Read More »
Alex Sink Loves Felons
I am a diehard Karen Handel supporter for Governor of Georgia. I believe Nathan Deal won the nomination by lying about Handel’s record. After Deal’s nomination, we now see what appears to be insurmountable allegations of corruption, bad business deals, near bankruptcy, etc. But all things being equal, I’ll be voting for Nathan Deal while holding my nose because even with all his problems, he | Read More »
The Real Rick Scott
As you know, I’m a fan of Rick Scott. I’ve known him for quite a while. I realize there is still ambivalence among a number of Bill McCollum supporters to support Rick, but I hope they will reconsider. Please read this article that came out late yesterday profiling Rick Scott. It’s in the Gulf Coast Business Review and really lays out everything you’d want to | Read More »
Great Scott! I have a Sinking feeling we risk a recount!
Yes, yes, I can hear the groans from here already, but when I see two polls one day apart from each other that give diametrically opposite results in the Florida Governor’s race, I get worried. Republican Rick Scott had similarly erratic polling in his primary race which finished close with 3% final difference, so as his polling against Democrat Alex Sink is swingy, I worry | Read More »
A metric ton of new polling today
Good evening. We have a great deal of new polling that’s flooded in. Much of it is interesting too, so rather than pick and choose which polls I’ll cover in depth and which I will omit, instead I’ll give a quick look at all the good ones. We’ve got Senate races in Nevada, Connecticut, West Virginia, Ohio, New York, Missouri, and Delaware, plus races for | Read More »

The anti-Alan Grayson ad that wrote itself.
More accurately, it’s the anti-Alan Grayson ad that he himself wrote. I would love to add something to this, but, really: when it comes down to it, the best argument against Grayson is… Grayson. No summary needed. You know what he says about non-progressives, it’s all in there… and in thirty seconds, too. The NRCC outdid itself, really. Enjoy. And donate to Daniel Webster‘s campaign.
American Stalin: Alan Grayson And His Views on the Anti-Defamation League, the Military, and Other Things
You might well say it is extreme hyperbole to call Alan Grayson an American Stalin. You would be right. But it is no different than what Alan Grayson, in extremist, hyperbolic lies, is doing to his opponent Daniel Webster. As has been well documented, Grayson attacked Bill Clinton Daniel Webster for getting academic deferments from Vietnam and then failing his medical exam, thus denying him | Read More »
Terribly inconsistent polling in Florida
I am at a loss as to how to analyze the polling of the race for Governor in Florida. Of the last four polls at Real Clear Politics, Republican Rick Scott leads according to Rasmussen Reports and Ipsos for Reuters, while Democrat Alex Sink leads acccording to Mason Dixon and CNN/Time. Two polls concluded on the same day (Rasmussen and Mason Dixon) are not supposed | Read More »

Meet Sandy Adams (R CAND, FL-24).
Sandy is running against Suzanne Kosmas, who has been busy these last couple of years in utterly [failing to prevent*] the administration from gutting manned space exploration. Sandy has a moneybomb going on today and tomorrow, so we talked briefly about her race: Sandy’s main site is here; the moneybomb site is here. [FL]-24 is definitely gettable for the GOP, but you have to speculate | Read More »
