Somewhere Midwestern - he was born in Illinois but graduated from Penn State in 1980 (moved here in '82).

Totally missed the joke



Congratulations on your ability to recognize repetition of the letter 'B'. Your kindergarten teacher must be proud.

Oh ok. Must have misread the Politico article. They've had one on DWS every day seemingly for the past week.

They have - Politico recently launched Florida operations with the high-profile hire of the former politics writer for the Miami Herald, so it's unsurprising that they're trying to get big stories to establish their new market (and, because it's Caputo, unsurprising that it's a South FL story).

I'd definitely have Murphy or Kathy Castor instead.

I don't know anything about Kathy Castor. Why isn't she considered for Senate? I know her mom lost a Senate race a while back, but what's the matter with Kathy?

[Edit]: I'm still floored at how terrible Debbie Wasserman Schultz is. Does she honestly think she has a chance of being elected statewide? She even sat down with Jon Tester... what a joke.

No, Murphy sat down with Jon Tester - who isn't a joke, seeing as he's DSCC chair. The point is that DWS hasn't done that. Anyway, on Castor, she has consistently never seemed to send any signals that she might be interested in the Senate. She's in a fairly safe House seat and is fairly quickly moving up in seniority on the Budget Committee, and maintains a fairly low statewide profile. There's been a little bit of buzz around her for Governor in 2018 but virtually nothing for Senate in 2016.

I would support Charlie Crist over Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a heartbeat

If those are the only two options, I'd tend to agree.

Besides DWS and Murphy, who else do you have who could be a good Senate candidate?

Murphy, Crist, maybe Castor if she wants it, a couple mayors (Dyer & Gillum - Buckhorn's running for governor in 2018), and a couple other reps (Grayson and Graham). We could also just run Alex Sink.

And here's Politico to shut down the DWS 2016 train.

Quote
Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s office offered to change her position on medical marijuana if a major Florida donor recanted his withering criticism of her, according to emails obtained by POLITICO.

91  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: FL: Grayson, DWS (among others) looking at Rubio's seat on: February 12, 2015, 03:06:06 pm
Grayson, just be happy with the fact that you managed to nab a safe House seat and be happy.
I wouldn't call his house seat completely safe.  I could see being ousted in primary in 2018 or 2020 by a good Hispanic candidate.

The Florida Democratic Party? Having an actual competitive primary for a (non-South FL) House seat?

Anyways, Grayson would relish the chance to run against someone reliant largely on contributions from major banks and who sits on the finance committee - good line of attack, and one that builds up his image (especially in 2016 with a Hillary primary against someone like Sanders or Warren).

SaintPetersBlog calls it a 'wolf ticket'

Quote
My band of sources is saying this is a wolf ticket, one perpetrated by Jeb Bush’s camp to diminish Rubio’s standing as a presidential aspirant.

“It does not come up in discussions,” says a well-known Republican strategist who is close to Rubio’s decision-making process.

And about those media reports to the contrary? “Everyone rolls their eyes.”

I'll be supporting the nominee, and hope we can move to the final vote as soon as possible.

Interpreting this as a motion for a final vote, I'll give a couple hours for any more questions and open one tonight.
97  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Government / Re: Kurdish Solidarity Act of 2014 (Debating) on: February 09, 2015, 02:57:29 pm
This measure would severely anger and isolate Turkey, a NATO member and one of the few states in the region to be both reasonably democratic and friendly to Atlasia. I'd urge the Senate to keep that in mind when considering this legislation.
98  Atlas Fantasy Elections / Atlas Fantasy Elections / Re: The People's Convention, February 2015 on: February 07, 2015, 10:56:27 pm
