The Predictable Narrative May Not Be
We are used to hearing the GOP is doomed with hispanic voters unless they do all sorts of things. I think much of what is said is said in a vacuum. Events and personalities change things. Likewise, I just don’t think the narrative is really as awful for the Republicans as so many in the press would have us believe. Consider Florida. Today, Governor Rick | Read More »
Florida is Working
Conservatives are disappointed of late with Governor Rick Scott’s decision about Medicaid, but we should not let it overshadow the fact that he is otherwise doing an excellent job as Governor. On Tuesday, Gov. Scott gave his state of the state address to the Florida legislature pointing out his agenda has been pro-family, pro-life, and pro-business. During Charlie Crist’s Governorship, Florida lost 825,500 jobs, but | Read More »
I Am Very Disappointed in Governor Rick Scott
I was one of the few national conservatives to support Governor Scott in 2010 during his primary. He is a fundamentally great person. I really like him. He has been a friend to this site. But I am terribly disappointed in his decision to expand Medicaid in Florida. As one of the chief opponents of Obamacare and, before it, Hillarycare, Governor Scott knows this is | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Gov. Rick Scott, Speaker-Designate Will Weatherford.
Two more RedState Gathering videos for the night: the first is Governor Rick Scott, who was of course our host for the weekend… …and the second is of Speaker-Designate Will Weatherford, who is poised to be the next Speaker of the House in the Florida legislature. Moe Lane (crosspost)
Rick Scott Wins
Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano have cried “uncle”. He is throwing in the towel on a legal challenge against Governor Rick Scott (R-FL). Governor Scott’s team down in Florida discovered a large number of people on the voter rolls who were not eligible to vote in Florida. They then discovered that more than a thousand of those people had actually voted in Florida elections. The | Read More »
Happy Birthday RedState. Will You Join Gov. Rick Scott and Me in Florida?
Josh Trevino posted this on January 24, 2004, at his blog Tacitus. Seven months later RedState.com came online. We’ve come along way since 2004. In our fifth year, we started the RedState Gathering. I put up a post without even telling my bosses at Eagle Publishing what I was up to. I just knew some of us wanted to get together in person after five | Read More »
Reflecting on the RedState Gathering
This past weekend I had the pleasure of, once again, attending the RedState Gathering. I began my 90 mile drive to the nearest airport at 4 am Friday morning. Two flights later and I was in Charleston before lunch. I arrived at the hotel and checked in to my room before meeting up with Erick and Neil to go to Staples and Chick-Fil-A. This was | Read More »

Former (Ha Ha Ha) Congressman Alan Grayson Still Stupid
Former (Hahahahahahaha) Congressman Alan Grayson took to a public former to declare Florida Governor Rick Scott like Al Qaeda. He said, “Putting Rick Scott in charge of a state is like putting Al-Qaida as the pilot of an airplane.” He also declared Rick Scott wants to turn Florida into Somalia. H/t to Secular Stupidest.
BREAKING: Rick Scott Wins
The Florida Supreme Court has ruled that Governor Rick Scott can reject high-speed rail funds from the federal government. Scott had decided to decline high-speed rail funds for a Tampa to Orlando line and two state legislators sued him. The Florida Supreme Court had put the bipartisan lawsuit filed Tuesday on a fast track because LaHood had given Scott until Friday to accept the money. | 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 »
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 »
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 »
