Jolly tells Cavuto why all eyes are on Florida’s CD 13 race: Obamacare battle, ground zero
BizPac Review ^ | 11 MAR 2014 | Me

The March 11 special election to see who takes Florida’s 13th Congressional district has become ground zero on a single issue — Obamacare — and may give a preview of what the 2014 midterm elections in November.

David Jolly, the political newcomer who is taking on Democrat Alex Sink, appeared on “Your World” Monday and discussed the race withFox News host Neil Cavuto. He reminded Cavuto that President Obama took the district in 2012, so it all comes down to the president’s signature piece of legislation.

Unfortunately Joly is being endorsed in TV ads by Jeb Bush. He needs to be elected to defeat the vile Sinkhole but don't expect him to embrace the small government cause if he goes to DC.

Without the Libertarian in this race I sense Jolly wins. Sink not a solid D candidate but solid enough to perhaps steal this one. Whoever wins must run again in Nov. It’s a different game then. DNCC dumped lots of $ here for midterm bragging rights. Jolly will either pull this out by a whisker or lose it the same way. No landslide here.

David feels Jolly, while Alex appears to Sink.

I heard this morning that there were about 2% more Republican early ballots than Dems, for what that’s worth. The Libertarian candidate will siphon some off, but not sure how much. He’s open borders, so I can’t vote for him. I’m in the normal situation of holding my nose again and voting Republican. Alex Sink reminds me of an old librarian shushing everyone. Forget that.

Republican David Jolly was decesaed Rep. Bill Young’s aide and heir apparant.

Democrat Alx Sink is one of those democrats who just keep running for any office up for grabs in hope that she will eventually stumble onto something she can win so she can get back on the government teat.

I agree with IM.

However, I recall a recent FR thread regarding Jolly being a mediocre candidate, propped up by RINO money - but basically a sacrificial goat from the GOPe, conceding the seat to the Leftists.

Jolly should have run ads, Sink’s doesn’t want to represent you, she doesn’t care about your issues, she’s job hunting.

Then list everything she’s run for.

2006 - FL CFO;
2010 - FL Governor;

Sink is carpet-bagging into the district, having only established residency after the election kicked up.

FL law only says you need to be a STATE resident, but the unspoken custom is, you reside in the district that elects you.

Pro-Obamacare. Pro-homosexual adoption. Lifelong Leftist.

And the polls have apparently closed.

Sink 48.6%
Jolly 46.3%

And the Libertine candidate has 5.1%, which as planned is just enough to throw the election to the leftist.

Another candidate for Obama’s slaughterhouse. In other words , he is just another useless eater. To be done away with as soon as his usefulness is over.

As it was supposed to.

If the Republicans were serious about winning, they would run ringers to siphon Democrat votes.

Here’s a strategy. Push these small races so the Democrats can wear themselves out financially with “get out the vote” spending. It will drive up the prices of the precinct captains who ensure the votes. Soon elections will break the banks of the Democrats.

Apparently we won. You could not tell on FR though. This one we needed to win but interest in the race has been non existent.

According to the Florida SOS website all the precincts have been counted and Jolly (R) won by about a 3,500 vote margin 48% to 46%, which should be outside the margin for democrat shenanigans, I expect Fox to call the race soon.

Jolly by about 4000 votes......wow what a squeaker!

But he did win despite millions poured in and Bill Clinton’s campaigning with Sink.

I hope she’s gone down the ‘drain’ for good!

Hopefully a sign of good things to come.

Holy Shiite can someone not figure out a way to run Green Party candidates to balance out the damage done by death wish Libertarians?

EVERY STATE NEEDS Green candidates.

I'm serious folks. The main, legitimate, Party that would siphon votes off of the Democrat totals is the United States Marijuana Party. It is a legitimate Party formed in 2002.
