Photos of Kendrick Meek, Dave Aronberg, Dan Gelber and lots of other politicians at Hands Across the Sand

in Peter/Statewide by

I’ve been snagging as many photos as I can of Florida and Tampa Bay politicians participating in either Hands Across the Sand or St. Pete Pride: State Senator Dan Gelber and State Representative Janet Long at Hands Across the Sand – St. Pete Congressman Kendrick Meek at Hands Across the Sand – Tampa. State Rep. Rick Kriseman at Hands Across the Sand – St. Pete. State Rep. Janet Cruz at Hands Across the Sand – Tampa. Pinellas County Commissioners Ken…

5 things I think about today’s St. Petersburg Times

in Peter/The Bay and the 'Burg by

As I have said many times before, it is not always what’s reported that’s important, it’s also what’s not reported that really matters. Case in point is Jeff Greene.  He should be topic number one for the political reporters at the Times.  In fact, Adam Smith and Co. should be writing this extended profile about Greene, not the Washington Post. But it’s almost as if Greene is getting, if not a pass, a chance to truly compete against Kendrick Meek.…

No, Alex Sink should not pick an LG right now

in Statewide by

As far as test balloons go, the one Alex Sink’s campaign floated about her naming a lieutenant governor candidate earlier than when required went over like a wounded duck — despite the part about her asking former gubernatorial candidate Rod Smith to join her on the ticket. Unfortunately, many of the people advising Sink to make an early choice “to cover twice the ground” are many of the same Democrats who have lost statewide election after statewide election.  In fact, if I…

President Clinton asking for money for Kendrick Meek

in Statewide by

The Senate campaign of Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-Fla.) sent out a fundraising appeal via email Friday from one powerful Democratic surrogate: former President Bill Clinton. In the email, Clinton appeals to donors to help Meek meet his $100,000 fundraising goal for the quarter, which ends June 30. From the email: “Kendrick has spent the last two decades faithfully serving the people of Florida, staying true to his core beliefs and giving everything he has to improving the lives of others.…

Washington Post: Jeff Greene touts business savvy, outsider status in run for U.S. Senate seat

in Statewide by

The Washington Post offers its most comprehensive profile to-date of Senate candidate Jeff Greene. “We’re flying right over our house!” Greene said excitedly. “See the one with the swimming pool right on the water, with the tennis court behind it? That’s our house!” In any other year, Florida voters might have written off the frenetic, unpolished candidacy of the 55-year-old billionaire as yet another footnote in the list of fabulously rich businessmen who self-fund a run for higher office in…

A memo to Kendrick Meek

in Peter/Statewide by

Kenneth Quinnell, the uber-smart new media director for the Kendrick Meek campaign, recently asked a few of us in the blogging community for feedback on “on the candidate, the campaign and our new media outreach efforts.” While I am sure Ken would have preferred for me to deliver my counsel privately, I wouldn’t tell him anything privately that I wouldn’t write on this blog.  So here goes: Dear Kenneth: Let me begin by commending you for continuing to reach out…
