I would call him a corrupt bastard if enough evidence existed for him to at least be investigated by the state, which to my knowledge, he hasn't.

Oh please, this is obvious, even more obvious than Aaron Schock being gay. Why would he have curtailed early voting?
Once again, I won't do my moralist "blablabla, you should be ashamed of yourself for supporting him blabla". I can understand that you prefer to vote for a corrupt bastard than for someone who strongly despises. But please, recognize he's a corrupt bastard, just for intellectual honesty.
You talk about intellectual honesty yet to offer no proof other than your opinion, which you believe is true because he is a "corrupt bastard."

Because he has curtailed early voting, why wouldn't have he done that, if not for targeting minority voters? Why? Answer.


Not him, but it's an easy question. Early voting doesn't raise turnout anyways, so cutting a few days out of it saves a few million dollars without harm and Scott is a big fan of making those weird little cuts that save chump change.

Even though I'm a plain ol' citizen I'd like to offer an amendment:

Quote
8. Jacksonville International Airport (JAX) shall henceforth be known as Dereich International Airport.

Jacksonville today, Jacksonville tomorrow, Jacksonville forever

At this point I think I'll be running for vice-chair as well.

Duke. I'm pretty sure he's registered as a Federalist and not as an independent anymore.

Jeb Bush had an affair that lasted quite a while; the Democrats from his time in office were never able to do much with it, but I've heard it brought up as one of the biggest things that would keep him from running.

Ok, I guess I'll start this up. Why do we have a provision for a psudo-currency in the middle of a bill on contraception? http://uselectionatlas.org/AFEWIKI/index.php/Trojan_Act

Bradenton (too small, too close to other major cities)
Fort Lauderdale
Gainesville
Jacksonville
Lakeland (or, if you'd rather, Orlampa - central location)
Miami
Ocala
Orlando
Pensacola (small, far away from everything else - all of Tally's problems amplified)
Port St. Lucie (essentially an offshoot of the South FL megaregion)
Sarasota
St. Augustine
St. Petersburg (because Tampa)
Tampa
West Palm Beach

I agree with all of these except Pensacola. It might have problems but it is a legitimate mid/largish sized city with no other viable options in the region. You've gotta give central time zone Florida a bit of love.

If I was going to add anything I guess I'd include Daytona Beach. You can make as good an argument for there as half the other places.

Awful policy. A good reason to put the Republicans in charge of the Senate.
So the reason for putting Republicans in the majority is that Reid is blocking a law that you want blocked?

Reed is blocking a law I want PASSED. The Republicans are fine giving the President fast track authority.

State Sen. Lizbeth Benacquisto has been spotted meeting with the NRCC, most likely to enter the FL-19 race.

I have friends in the district who called this months ago. Benacquisto started running ads for her state senate reelection campaign suspiciously early and was probably planning to go for it either way. I'd be surprised if she wasn't the favorite to take the whole thing.

Honestly, my view of FL-2 from living here is that it's not going to be the big race y'all are all hoping or expecting it to be. There is little to no talk about it in Tallahassee, even from the political types who are big into this sort of thing; the race for Governor and the upcoming session of the legislature are much bigger news around here. Either way, unless something wacky happens this is going to be a 2 or 3 point race and which side turns out more people is going matter much much more than who gets the very few persuadable voters.

Which should surprise exactly nobody. Charlie Crist's former (maybe still current?) boss and key adviser John Morgan is the one leading the medical marijuana initiative.
