Skip to comments.Wasserman Schultz Says Dem Loss in Special Election Shows GOP Weakness
Posted on 03/11/2014 6:26:55 PM PDT by gooblah
Republican David Jolly won the special election to fill the House seat left vacant by the death of his former boss, Rep. C.W. Bill Young (R-Fla.).
With nearly all of the votes counted Tuesday night, Jolly had 48.5 percent of the vote to Alex Sinks 46.7 percent. Libertarian Lucas Overby had 4.8 percent.
Sink lost the 2010 governors race to Rick Scott. The Democratic Party sunk extensive ad funding into the congressional battle, and DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) tried to paint the loss as a positive.

defeat is good
May we have many such weaknesses in November!
Whistling past the grave yard are we Miss Debbie?
LOL...well, good...I hope we show this same kind of “weakness” in every race in November.
This was with a Libertarian taking 10% of the vote too.
The “libertarian to bleed R votes” and win with a Clintonian plurality failed.
Anti-regime sentiment in this district was strong.
Yeah Schultzy, I agree that a Rat loss is a good thing. LOL!
polyanna Wasserman Shultz says Dem Loss in Special Election Shows GOP Weakness.
They must have to brew a special crack recipe just for her personal use.
Soooo....Obama carried the district, even Sink carried it in her pathetic run for governor, and now she loses due to GOP weakness. Got it. Apparently too much mayo in the scalp is damaging to brain cells.
Sink got Sunk! And now we have the Cruella LaGru of the RAT “brain trust” telling everyone that this was really a win! I am betting that the years of putting mayonnaise on her hair has finally affected whatever existed inside her head in terms of a brain.
Cool!! I agree with DWS! Any Dem loss IS a positive! Thanks Deb, for pointing that out.
I wonder where she learned to use her mouth like that....
Thanks, Lucas. You jackass. You almost blew it for us regular people.
If this is “GOP weakness”, let there be more of it.
“rat chokes on it”
The article says 4.8%.
Is your data more up to date?
Ha, it wasPelosi that said the democritters should embrace Obamacare.
Let’s see what bug eyes has to say now.
What do people expect her to say “We are F*cked” Debbie is your typical Commie drone, behind the scenes they are crapping their pants
how long before she declares that we have a weak GOP field for 2016?
i hope that come November,we are able to see how many registered dems we have in Florida and its only 28%, then lets see what Debbie Deb has to say.
Sink ran for Governor against Scott so she had name recognition while Jolly never held office. Obama carried this district in 2008 and 2012, as did Sink when she ran for Governor. As DNC Chairman wanted this more than jar of Hellmans. That’s why they were overspending on a special election that will be run again in about 8 months.
Saw 8000 votes. My math could be way off.
What do people expect her to say We are F*cked Debbie is your typical Commie drone, behind the scenes they are crapping their pants”
Very true. Her job is to spin. I have no doubt Dems are biting their nails behind closed doors. Expect more all night global warming and inequality talk a thons
Makes it all the sweeter.
Wasserman-Schultz has her head so far up her ass that she has to part her hair to break wind.
Well the Democrap are now embracing the SUCK =)
Youre darn right that our candidates are going to run on the advantage that Obamacare will be going into the 2014 election,’’ proclaimed Debbie Wasserman Schultz late last year.
But what now, Debbie? The Democrats can’t have a Plan B because they think they’re always right.
Since she goes out in public thinking her hair looks good, we really don’t need to hear her thoughts on anything past that.
How people this delusional are still walking around free is a bit of a mystery to me.
Don’t we have institutions, other than political, where we can commit them too?
Funny to see Dems try to spin this in their favor when all day all they have been doing is gloating thinking they had this election in the bag. Yes, it is a leaning Republican District but its also an area that Obama won TWICE and if Dems were SO convinced that this loss is “No big deal” how come they spent so much money(Overspending Jolly overwhelmingly in this race) if they thought they didnt have a chance to win anyway
If she’s happy about this outcome then we should do whatever we can to make her ecstatic!
Um.... Taking it from who? What if more than half those votes were disgruntled Dems?
Come on folks, we’ve been going over those numbers for decades now. The LP isn’t stealing conservative votes in larger numbers than they are stealing from the liberals.
I believe she uses moose.
So, is this silly b!tch say that Dims are going to run on Obamacare?
We can only hope.
Thank you, Debbie. No further questions. Your honor, the witness may be excused.
Victory is weakness
Anyone know if Sink will once again try to run in Nov. to get beaten for a third time?
Debbie /democrats are spinning so fast they’re word is no longer believable thus they know they’re screwed ! The new transparency !
They’d be better to say nothing
Not so. The article states the Libertarian took 4.8%.
However it was a significant number and shows how easy it is for malcontents to throw an election. Lets hope the kamikaze Conservatives don't end up allowing Hillary to win.
Ralph Nader cost Al Gore Florida and therefore the entire election. The nut jobs on both ends of the political spectrum are a danger to themselves as well as the rest of us.
Go ahead and vote your heart in primaries, but use your head in general elections.
Not so. The article states the Libertarian took 4.8%.
You could say he took away 10% of the GOP vote...:^)
DWS can’t believe they lost after all that cheating.
When Alex Sink ran for Governor in 2010, she carried this locale (Pinellas County) with a plurality 50.52% against overall FL winner Rick Scott. Sink’s support is down the drain.
Wasserman-Schultz has been drinking again. Probably partook of Nancy Pelosi liquor stash.
Now you did it. The purists will come out of their lair and rain pure bile on you.
If you don't stay perfectly right, you are no better than the libs.
There are purists here at FR that continue to say that obama is no worse than Mitt would have been.
Makes me wanna puke in their dope stash.
