Mitch Perry Report for 10.25.16 – DCCC ad linking Trump to Jolly goes away, but has the damage been done?

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

Attention political junkies: not every voter pays attention to politics until right before the election, which is why that ad by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee “dramatizing” David Jolly standing with Donald Trump was so egregious. The ad — one of the most controversial of any produced this season in American politics — was immediately denounced by the Jolly campaign, who protested to local television stations to stop airing it. They did not. Nor did his Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist, say anything negative when called to denounce it…

At Sun City Center, Marco Rubio derides Patrick Murphy as an “old-fashioned liberal”

in 2017 by

Marco Rubio has been making the case that Patrick Murphy hasn’t accomplished much of anything during his four years in the U.S. House of Representatives. Now, with the polls tightening, he’s saying that the voting record of his Democratic rival in the U.S. Senate race is also too liberal. “Why does someone lie about their background, about things that they have done? Apparently because they haven’t done anything,” Rubio told a couple of dozens supporters at a clubhouse in Sun City Center in South Hillsborough…

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Donald Trump is in Tampa tonight, speaking at the facility formerly known as the 1-800-Gary (it’s actually called the MidFlorida Credit Union something or other). Among the many criticisms even his most fervent supports have expressed about his flagging candidacy is the lack of specific policies that could persuade undecided voters to support him in November. To that end, on Saturday in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, The Donald unveiled what his team is calling his own “Contract with the American Voter” — a list of…

Mitch Perry Report for 10.21.16 — Rick Scott in 2020?

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Forget about Marco Rubio in 2020, what about Rick Scott? Troy Kinsey from Bay News 9 reports that “some GOP operatives are floating him as a potential presidential contender in 2020, should Trump lose in November.” Kinsey then quotes all of one lone such operative in his story. But it does make for a good headline. Now, what about Marco Rubio? The Florida lawmaker made news this week when he declared in his debate against Patrick Murphy, “I’m going to serve in the Senate for the next six years, God…

Mitch Perry Report for 10.20.16 — #Badhombres

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Donald Trump enjoyed mocking Hillary Clinton earlier this week for all the time she’s taken off the campaign trail recently, but with all three debates now history, it’s clear she knew exactly she was doing — working to be totally prepared for these debates. I know folks like to lower the bar considerably when grading how well Trump performed in these encounters, but the fact is Clinton has been sharper and better prepared in all three, and they really could be the deciding…
