Skip to comments.The Need to Unite Behind Rick Scott and the Stakes for US Congress

Any discord among party members must end after the primaries. This is especially true in the all important gubernatorial race in Florida in this congressional redistricting year.
Republicans across the board are spending time, energy and resources on defeating vulnerable Democrat incumbents, including Alcee Hastings (whose district boasts an abysmal voter turnout and who has all but lost the critical Haitian vote), Ron Klein and Alan Grayson.
We need to keep in mind that a Democratic governor in a redistricting year could not only preclude Republicans from holding these seats in the future, but could in fact lead to the election of yet another Alcee Hastings, Ron Klein and Alan Grayson, on top of those already in place.
Whoever you may have supported in the past, one thing is clear. The election of a Republican governor within the State of Florida, where the Governor holds veto power over redistricting, is crucial to the future of our statewide congressional caucus. Rick Scott is our nominee and his election will determine the future of three or four congressional seats, which may at times be the margin of control in the US House.

Oh but Bill McCollum (sp) isnt sure he can trust him.....
ping - as it relates to holding this year’s congressional wins.
I like Bill McCollum. I sympathize. He’s an intelligent, highly competent and generally well meaning man who often gets outdone because he’s not seen as dynamic. I had the same problem in my race in Broward and ended up throwing my support to the other competent, conservative, well meaning candidate with more to spend to defeat someone who was anything but (and it worked). But Scott is a fine candidate, an outsider with business sense and we can’t let anyone’s (even rightly) hurt feelings destroy our momentum for safeguarding these congressional seats.
Yup. Nothing has changed. The same old flim-flam. Unite behind the Repo crook to throw out the Demo sicko. Oh yes, and while you are at it, throw a bunch of money to your favorite crook. The flim-flam costs money and the Saudis are getting stretched buying both sides.
I agree whole heartedly. Infighting after the primaries only kills the side you are on.
Beginning to take the position that he may be a crook, but he is our crook. Better than their crook. The redistricting could mess things up for ten years, and Florida voting for the anointed one in 2012 would be a disgrace.
