GOP mocks national Dems for ‘zero chance’ of beating Vern Buchanan in 2018

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Though the 2018 congressional elections are still a year and a half away, the news headlines continue to make Democrats believe that 2018 will be a wave election that could see them take over the House of Representatives. It won’t be easy, even if the daily revelations from Washington continue to chip away at President Donald Trump and the Republican Party’s ratings. On Monday, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) announced 20 more congressional districts targeted for recruitment and potential investment,…

Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee looking dumb and dumber for abandoning Patrick Murphy

in Peter/Top Headlines by

About a week ago, I used this space to offer an honest critique of national Democrats turning their backs on Patrick Murphy. At the time, Murphy was lagging behind by about four points; at least one poll showed it was even closer. With Donald Trump cratering, it only seemed logical to this writer that abandoning Murphy was a dumb move. And now, we have new variables to consider. First, there is another poll, this one from Quinnipiac, showing the race…

in 2017/Top Headlines by

By now, candidates surely must know that everything they say will be instantly analyzed, dissected and, most importantly, fact-checked to make sure they are not fibbing. Outfits like PolitiFact and FactCheck make their living by exposing politicians who are challenged by the truth. So I can’t understand why any serious candidate would risk the wrath of the truth-sayers and allow themselves to labeled as liars. Consider Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Murphy, for instance. For context, consider that the latest…

Mitch Perry Report for 8.11.16 – Marco Rubio isn’t dominating Patrick Murphy or Alan Grayson in latest Q Senate poll

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Before we dig into the new poll on the Florida Senate race, can I reference the lead story in this morning’s Tampa Bay Times? Two men get into a road-rage argument on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Plant City. One guy pulls out a gun and shoots the other dead. He then “cooperates” with the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Dept., isn’t charged, and is free to go home, where he tells a reporter who confronts him that, “it’s been a very taxing day.”…

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Tampa based state Senator Arthenia Joyner got to the point in addressing a packed audience that crowded into the new campaign headquarters for the Hillary Clinton campaign on Thursday night. “We know what it means to hand our future to a billionaire businessman,” she said, comparing the Democrats bete noire in Florida with Donald Trump. “We don’t need a Rick Scott clone in the White House. Is that what we want to see? Do we really want an instant replay with what…
