in Statewide/Top Headlines by

As a proposed solar energy initiative gains steam in Florida, an interesting rhetorical battle is also heating up: Americans for Prosperity (AFP) against the Tea Party fringe. The latest bombast comes from Debbie Dooley, described by American Spectator columnist Jon Cassidy as a “Tea Party eccentric and advocate for solar energy.” Dooley is the outspoken state coördinator of the Georgia Tea Party Patriots.

American Spectator on Charlie Crist-Marco Rubio: ‘Reversal of Fortune’

in Statewide by

From American Spectator: The last advantage that moderate to liberal Florida Governor Charlie Crist had in his race for the Republican nomination for a U.S. Senate seat against conservative former Florida House Speaker Marco Rubio is now gone. Crist is no longer the campaign finance champion. Rubio will have the money he needs to tell his story. And he, in stark contrast to Crist, has a story to tell in conservative 2010. When the counting had been done last week,…

Amercian Spectator: Please don’t, Charlie Crist

Please don’t atomize a promising young Republican, who, if he emerges from this primary tested but unscathed, can hold the seat for the party and be a forceful voice for conservative change in Washington. How did these supplicants do? We won’t know for a few weeks, but the early returns are not encouraging. The Governor’s Lincoln Day speech in Nassau County Friday evening was a classic case of Charlie being Charlie. (Nassau County, I…
