Marco Rubio takes Harry Reid to task for Reid’s latest racist slur
Harry Reid once again demonstrates that it is OK to be a racial bigot, so long as you are a leftwing racial bigot. “I don’t know how anyone of Hispanic heritage could be a Republican, OK? Do I need to say more?” — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), August 10, 2010 Earlier this year we learned that, in 2008, Reid suggested that Obama’s success | Read More »
Battleground Senate Poll
From Unlikely Voter: In an open and credited aping of the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner House battleground polls, Public Opinion Strategies has conducted a massive Senate battleground poll. Politico has for us the summary and 150 pages of gory, numerical details. I’m going to see what sense I can make of it.

Rasmussen: Meek must be sunk…
…if the Democrats want to keep the R from the seat. If Meek gets the nomination, Marco Rubio wins; if Greene gets it, Crist picks up enough votes to make the race competitive. And, of course, if Crist wins he’ll then finish the project of becoming a Democrat. That was Arlen Specter’s mistake, you see: openly turning your coat will strike too many people as | Read More »
The Bill McCollum Campaign Looks Desperate and Dead to Integrity
“Here we have the Attorney General of Florida abusing his office to destroy a company all to help his standing in the polls.” Holy cow. I never would have thought I’d see Bill McCollum stoop to cheap political tricks to try to boost his poll numbers. Short of putting a dead girl or live boy in Rick Scott’s trunk, I don’t think McCollum could have | Read More »
Is Karen Diebel Really A Big Taxer?
I haven’t really jumped into FL-24 race other than to raise some concerns I had with Karen Diebel that everyone assures me are actually not big issues. But one thing that has jumped out at me is some of the attacks on Diebel about her voting for tax increases on the Winter Park City Council in Florida. Here are some of the tax increases she’s | Read More »
Rick Scott Continues to Lead Bill McCollum in Florida
The gubernatorial race in Florida continues to surprise me. Bill McCollum, the unquestionably conservative Attorney General and former congressman who played a part in Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is losing to a novice politician and former hospital CEO. With just three weeks until Election Day, and early voting beginning next week, Scott is beating McCollum in every demographic and geographic category of likely GOP voters, said | Read More »
Daylight in the Florida Primaries
From Unlikely voter: Florida is a large and aggressively contested state. It, of all states, demands the clarity of traditional horserace polling. We have been denied that opportunity yet, though, because the Republicans still need a candidate for Governor and the Democrats still need a candidate for Senate. Quinnpiac’s poll suggests we may get answers soon, as late entering political novices Rick Scott and Jeff | Read More »

Meet Bruce O’Donoghue (R CAND, FL-08).
Bruce is one of several candidates looking for the opportunity to be the one who gets to escort Alan Grayson back to private life, and he chatted with RedState this afternoon: The primary is next month; Bruce’s website is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Florida Senate Update
We have a pair of polls to look at updating us on the Florida Senate race, a general election carpet bomb from Rasmussen, and a peek at the race between the Democrats in the primary from PPP. Unfortunately, what we don’t have is any clarity.
Rubio battles back
For a while the polling of the Florida Senate race had many people thinking that Charlie Crist, newly minted Independent, was running away with it. I disagreed and assumed his bump in the polls was driven by heavy coverage of his party switch and of his oil spill inspections. Rasmussen’s latest just might bear that out as Marco Rubio takes a fresh lead.
Pensacola Beach closed due to Obamaspill.
Heckuva job there, Barry. A popular section of Pensacola Beach has been closed because of oil that washed ashore there. Government officials closed about a quarter-mile section of Casino Beach on Thursday. Thick pools of oil washed ashore there Wednesday. Via Gateway Pundit, via Instapundit. But never fear: the White House in on the case!
Democrats, signs, and hoisting on petards.
You get the feeling that possibly Democratic politicians are starting to get nervous about November: they’re starting to advertise anywhere that they can. Third Base Politics has the saga of Mary Jo Kilroy (D, OH-15), who put up a big honking sign at her HQ, then had to bring it back down for a zoning violation. Kilroy, of course, is the Congresswoman currently trying to | Read More »
Taxpayer Funded Abortions Come to Florida
Media headlines are saying Charlie Crist’s veto of pro-life legislation is a veto about women receiving ultrasounds before electing to have an abortion. That’s actually only part of the legislation. With Crist’s veto there is more. Taxpayer funded elective abortions are coming to Florida for the first time. Recent federal health care legislation gave states the opportunity to opt-out of federal provisions using tax dollars | Read More »
Is Karen Diebel Okay?
I know nothing about this race, but like Dan, I was given troubling police reports that are either real and very bizarre, or suggests something is not right with Karen Diebel. Diebel is one of two candidates running in FL-24 for Congresswoman’s Kosmas’s seat. The seat leans Republican, but has been held by a Democrat these past few years since beating Tom Feeney. According to | Read More »
Democratic party abandoning Kendrick Meek in FL-SEN?
Looks that way: Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who left the Republican Party to run for Senate as an independent, has hired a top Senate Democrat’s former chief of staff. In a just-released statement, Crist announced that his media team will be headed by Josh Isay, who used to work for Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. Schumer is a member of the Senate’s Democratic leadership team and | Read More »
