Standing Pat Patterson

State Rep. Pat Patterson, R-DeLand, is running for the state CFO post.

Really.

Sure, Patterson had no presence at the Republican convention in Orlando last weekend. Never mind that Pattersons rival for the GOP nomination state Senate President Jeff Atwater, R-North Palm Beach, has $1.6 million as opposed to the $64,135.17 that Patterson raised (of which $40,000 came from Pattersons previous campaigns).

George LeMieux, meet John Kerry

George LeMieux might only be a recent addition to the U.S. Senate but he is already acting like a veteran of the Beltway.

On February 22, LeMieux joined a majority of his fellow Republicans in voting against cloture for the Obama administration jobs bill, trying to keep it off the Senate floor. The measure passed due to a number of Republicans, most notably new U.S. Senator Scott Brown, R-Mass, voting with the Democrats. Having voted to keep the bill off the floor, LeMieux then supported the jobs package as it passed the Senate on February 24.

A Sunshiney Day for Florida News

Florida's been languishing in darkeness for too long. For too long we've had to rely on the mainstream media to deliver bias views of the important politics of our state. For too long, we've watched the other journalists simply chase each other's tale.

Following the pack just doesn't work for us anymore.
