in Top Headlines by

Last night in Miami, Alan Gross, the American citizen who was detained in Cuba by the Castro-led government for five years before his release last December, spoke at the inaugural fundraiser for New Cuba PAC, a political action committee created to push for the end of the U.S. 53-year economic embargo against the Communist island. “It was a magical night,” says James Williams with Engage Cuba, a new nonprofit advocacy group created in tandem with the new PAC. “It really felt in many ways…

Mitch Perry Report for 3.12.15 — Charlie Crist for Senate?

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

The other day Mason-Dixon did a poll on the 2016 Florida race, and it’s content was somewhat pedestrian. Pedestrian in the respect that it only put four names into the ring: Marco Rubio and Jeff Atwater for the Republicans; Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Patrick Murphy for the Democrats. With over a year and a half until the actual contest, couldn’t Mason-Dixon throw a few more names in the mix, since as of today, none of these people have actually committed to running for…

Time offers ‘Ten Questions’ to Charlie Crist, like ‘Who’ll Remember the Tea Party in 20 Years?’

in Statewide by

Last year, Time offered its “Ten Questions” feature to Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, but the reader questions it selected were mostly hostile, panning his response to the State of the Union, asking if he looked like the geeky Kenneth the Page from “30 Rock,” and underlining the shakiness of the GOP: “Voters rejected the GOP in November. What changes do you think it needs to make in order to become relevant again?” This week, Time offered the same feature to Florida…

Ann Coulter attacks Marco Rubio for opposition to Arizona immigration law

in Statewide by

Ann Coulter paid Juan Williams a visit on The O’Reilly Factor last night to discuss the two hottest topics in the news cycle: the Arizona immigration bill and the Goldman Sachs housing market scandal. On the former, she had some harsh words for fellow conservatives Karl Rove and Marco Rubio for attacking it. Coulter defended the law against what she called “blatant, blatant lying” about the potential for racial profiling, and argued that “it’s not like Arizona is inventing this…

Karl Rove to speak at Sarasota GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner

in Statewide by

The man George W. Bush affectionately – I think – nicked named “Turd Blossom,” will be the keynote speaker at the Sarasota County Republican Party’s Lincoln Day Dinner on March 24. Bush may have kidded Karl Rove incessantly with the nickname – a Texan saying that refers to a type of flower that grows in pastures from, well, you know … – but Bush also owes Rove for devising the “strategery” that took Bush from the owner’s box at Texas…
