in Statewide/Top Headlines by

When I was a member of the Florida Legislature, I always supported efforts to expand access to justice. It’s a right that’s enshrined in the Pledge of Allegiance, the U.S. Constitution and the Florida Constitution: “The courts shall be open to every person for redress of any injury, and justice shall be administered without sale, denial or delay.” But let’s be honest.

in Statewide/Top Headlines by

Congressman Jeff Miller has set off a series of dominoes with his announcement yesterday that he will not seek a ninth term in Congress. Congressional openings are rare.

Odds of Miller running increased after he attended this past weekend’s quarterly meeting of the Republican Party of Florida, something that the Chumuckla lawmaker has not done for almost a year. Many saw Miller’s attendance at the event as yet another indication he will run for the U.S. Senate in 2016. Not…
