51  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: FL-Gov: Crist comeback getting underway on: June 01, 2013, 11:34:30 pm
I'm pretty sure I heard Sink isn't running.
Doesn't matter. Obama's supporting Crist in the primary.

If the Clinton's are thinking about 2016 they might endorse Crist and campaign for him.
Who better to have than the Gov of the largest swing state as your ally?

I can't believe Dems are slobbering over Charlie Crist. We've waited 16 years for this? The idea that Crist is the only Democrat who can win in Florida is mistaken. Only a very unlucky confluence of factors screwed the Democrats in statewide races in recent years. In 2006, the Democrats could have taken the governorship, but the Republicans narrowly held on by nominating an extreme moderate (Crist). Then in 2010, we could have taken it again, except for extremely negative national factors that swept the country that year. Even so, Sink nearly won. I think Florida Dems can do better than Crist, but whatever.

Do you have a suggestion for a candidate?

Sink, Brown, and Crist are literally the only people on that list that would have a shot

You bring up a good point, I know this isn't the right thread but I wonder if there would be any chance Sink would run in FL-15 against Dennis Ross. I think she'd be a good candidate for that seat, he went unopposed in 2012 but this district represents rural Tampa suburbs and Lakeland.

I wonder if she has considered it.

58  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Hillary Clinton/Bill Nelson vs Susana Martinez/Deb Fischer on: May 16, 2013, 04:37:17 pm


Martinez gets the SW back but can't close the deal in the East.  Nelson isn't quite enough to stop Martinez in FL.

 I think Florida would go to Clinton in this case. Nelson is popular in Florida and Martinez is Mexican not Cuban.

I wonder how soon a referendum for this would be viable in FL?  I imagine it will be the first Southern state to do it (someone will say VA, but it has to come out of the leg there and one house is ironclad R).

I think I explained this is another thread - gay marriage was constitutionally banned already, so you'd need an amendment to change it. For an amendment to go into effect it needs 60% of the vote.

Yep, which is why it's going to be hard anytime soon to do anything.

Joe Garcia(FL-26) and Patrick Murphy(FL-18) aren't on the NRCC list? Surprising

Edit: Garcia's district voted 53% for Obama so I guess that makes sense but Murphy's district was won by Romney

Charlie Crist just endorsed marriage equality on facebook:

Charlie Crist- about an hour ago
Quote
Some great news: On Tuesday, Delaware became the 11th state to allow marriage equality. And just a few days ago, Rhode Island adopted a similar measure, which followed victories last fall in Maine, Maryland and Washington. I most certainly support marriage equality in Florida and look forward to the day it happens here.

A third major party is in the works so I'm not going to prognosticate who's running yet.

Um what?

Good article, basically restates a lot of what we already know. I think with an effective ad campaign and a decent money advantage McAuliffe can win but who knows...

As #SC01 results come in, watch Charleston County. 41% of the dist's votes are here, and ECB needs at least 53% here to hit 50% overall.

I believe I read somewhere that ECB camp wanted 40% or more of the votes to come from here.

I wouldn't necessarily say this hurts him. Most RINOs rank-and-file support these measures.
...Most of the Republican voters are RINOs then?
A few, not most.  I should of clarified myself and said most northeast Republicans are RINOs.

In other words, the ones who've been Republicans for generations are the RINOs?

lol they're so delusional

"Moderate-to-conservative" Bellevue? Maybe in the 90s. It's one of the most Democratic towns in the district, much more so than places like Auburn or Federal Way.

Is Federal Way really that democratic? My aunt and uncle live there. They're pretty conservative, that doesn't mean anything, but that's interesting.

The current mayor:

Gainesville Mayor Craig Lowe was arrested early Thursday morning on a DUI charge after he crashed his car in northeastern Alachua County and admitted drinking earlier in the evening, according to an arrest report.

The Florida Highway Patrol reported that the single-car accident happened about 2:20 a.m. in the area of Northeast 21st Street and 156th Avenue.

His challenger:

Gainesville City Commissioner Ed Braddy was arrested Wednesday night for driving under the influence after he sideswiped another vehicle with his van while trying to change lanes on NW 6th Street near NW 11th Avenue, according to a police report.

Police responding to the accident at about 10:40 p.m. gave Braddy, 33, a breath test that indicated his blood-alcohol level was 0.184, according to the report. Florida law prohibits driving with a blood-alcohol level above 0.08.

NOTE: Braddy's is from 2006, it seems the Lowe campaign is just bringing it back up to cover themselves up, my mistake.
