For U.S. Senate:
Charlie Crist is the current Republican Governor of Florida. As such he was a favorite of independents, but his moderate views led him to believe he could not win the Republican primary so he is running as an independent. He may be gay. Since his main opponent is very conservative he has become much more conservative in his views the past few months and is a world class flip-flopper. His main challenge comes from…
Marco Rubio, the Republican nominee and darling of the Tea Baggers. He is a financial deadbeat and has probably illegally used campaign funds for personal use. He is young and charismatic and of Cuban decent. Sarah Palin likes him and he is a dangerous, right-wing nut job. He is leading in the polls. There is a third candidate…
Kendrick Meeks is a black guy and the Democratic nominee. He is currently running a poor third in the polls. A lot of people seem to want him to quit so Crist has a better chance. I don’t know much about him since he has no money for ads, the other two don’t bother to pick on him and the press ignores him.
If any of them has a position on the Middle Eastern wars I haven’t heard it.
For the Governor’s job we have:
Alex Swift is the Democratic nominee. Her husband ran against Jeb Bush for Governor and lost in 2002. She was the CFO of Florida and lost billions during the ’08 financial meltdown. She’s a former Bank of America CEO fir Florida. She is a descendant of the Siamese twins Chang and Eng She has a really annoying accent.
Rick Scott is the Republican nominee for Governor. He owned a bunch of donut shops and was then the CEO of a heath care company that the Feds fined $1.7 billion for some kind of fraud – I’m not sure why but it was after he made millions. He lived in public housing when he was a kid. His mother loves him and he will cut taxes.
My Congressman is a guy named John Mica. He is a Republican and has had the office since 1992. He won with 62% of the vote in ’08. He’s running against a woman named Heather Beaven (above) who has never run for office before. I had to go online to learn even this. I’ve never seen an ad or read a word about either of them. Maybe there’s Tea Bagger running too but I haven’t heard.
So anyway, you can see why I’m so enthusiastic about this election. Heather is kind of cute. I'll probably vote for her.
