The AFL-CIO is sending mailers to union members in Florida touting Kendrick Meek and pointing out that Marco Rubio is not exactly worker friendly. The mailer makes three assertions: Rubio opposes extending unemployment benefits Rubio is anti-union rights Rubio is pro-outsourcing These assertions are pretty easy to back up with real life examples of Marco [...]

Bi-Party Crist Wont Pick Partner

August 30, 2010

Florida Governor and one-time leading Senatorial Candidate Charlie Crist is finding that coming out as bi-party is not the cakewalk that he was hoping for – his old friends feel betrayed and confused, his new friends are somewhat fickle, and his enemies are gleeful as he bends and twists to distance himself from the very [...]

No Longer Beating a Dead Horse

June 24, 2010

I give up – there’s really no reason to rally behind the only real Democrat in the Democratic primary race. No Party Charlie Crist is with us on everything except what he’s not with us on and that’s good enough for me, so the primary is officially moot. Look, I will always like Kendrick – [...]

Kendrick Meek Needs Us Now

June 17, 2010

Charlie Crist is no progressive. “I’m as conservative as any governor. I’m chain gang Charlie. I’m pro-gun. I’m pro life,” There is a true progressive in the Florida Senate race, and he is being all but ignored by the progressive community.  Kendrick Meek needs and deserves the support of everyone who is looking to put [...]
