RS Interview: Steve Oelrich (R CAND, FL-03 PRI)

    This is a slightly complicated one: I have two different interviews for the FL-03 GOP primary, and I don’t want to appear to play favorites, so I’m just going to do them both and let the readers decide.  This one is of state Senator Steve Oelrich, who represents most of the new district in the state legislature. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7TAowns3bRk His campaign site is here.

    Why I Oppose John Mica

    Having grown weary of the never ending attacks and accusations that I am but a ‘tool’ of Rep. Sandy Adams’ campaign each time I focus on Rep. John Mica, I will share my thoughts on the matter. The one issue that his hired ‘attack dogs’ and other misguided supporters continually fall back on is that the Adams campaign advertises on my web site.  That is | Read More »

    RedState Gathering: Rep. Sandy Adams (R CAND, FL-07 PRI)

    There are going to be a bunch of Florida interviews this week; as noted before, Florida’s primary is going on even as we speak. And one person I spoke to was Rep. Sandy Adams, who is now in a primary with Rep. John Mica; we touched base after her speech to talk a little about the Gathering, and whatnot. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8FGuHMawmI Rep. Adams’ site is here. | Read More »

    Keep Sandy Adams, dump John Mica

    Sandy Adams may have the most unlikely back-story for a conservative Republican Congresswoman ever. That is, if you believe the media bias about single moms and the “War on Women”, which Sandy Adams doesn’t. In fact, I’ve met more than one conservative activist, politician or regular American who grew up like Sandy Adams and became a leader in the conservative movement. Sandy joined the Air | Read More »

    RedState Gathering: Karen Harrington (R CAND, FL-23 PRI).

    There are a bunch of these, particularly of Florida-specific content: early voting has started in the primary, which means that the election is going on right now.  Accordingly… Karen Harrington is running to get the right to challenge Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the general election for FL-23.  I touched base with her at the Gathering about that: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RkhzdOYk-M4 Karen Harrington’s site is here.

    RedState Gathering 2012: Jacksonville Felt Like Home #RSG12

    Promoted from the diaries It’s funny how I always used to laugh at the phrase “Home is where the heart is”. It always seemed a bit silly to me. It wasn’t all that long ago that I started to learn that this really was true. One could always feel like they were at “home” even though they may not be sleeping in their bed, or | Read More »

    John Mica; Majority Leader Eric Cantor Has Failed Us?

    Let’s be clear, Rep. John Mica DID NOT not say Majority Leader Eric Cantor has “failed us”. HOWEVER, in an ad targeting his opponent in the contentious CD7 Republican primary, freshman Congresswoman Sandy Adams, Mica outlines 6 votes on budget and spending bills that she voted against. “Sandy Adams talks about reducing the deficit. Given the chance, she failed us,” a narrator in the commercial | Read More »

    BREAKING: Allen West Endorses Sandy Adams in FL-07 Primary

    Sandy Adams locked in another powerful endorsement for her reelection campaign today from one of her fellow freshmen members of Congress, Allen West.

    Adams’ campaign sent out a press release this morning (I’ve included it below) with West’s endorsement, which is noteworthy not only for the enthusiastic support that West expresses for Adams, but also because West explicitly draws a distinction between the freshmen who were elected in 2010, and the “entrenched careerist politicians” who were supporting the status quo in Washington.

    I’ve been involved in a long list of campaigns over the past few years, and I’ve seen an endless number of endorsements trotted out by candidates. The reality is that not all endorsements are created equal. All too often I’ve read endorsements and wondered if the endorser had ever even met the candidate they were endorsing.

    In contrast, West’s endorsement of Adams is personal and detailed, describing how they both were elected in the conservative tidal wave elections of 2010, and how he shared a common purpose with her in “fighting to change the ways of Washington.”

    RS Interview: Mark Oxner (R CAND, FL-09 PRI).

    FL-09 is, of course, the district that Alan Grayson is currently hoping to carpetbag – apparently the poor fellow has discovered that he has precisely zero reason to exist, outside of Congress.  It’s very sad – and the GOP is equally hopeful that they can stop him. I talked to one of the candidates last week: Mark Oxner, businessman.  We discussed the race, and a | Read More »
