Lange Sykes releases first ad in HD 54 race


Lange Sykes is out with his first television advertisement, and is honing in on President Barack Obama’s “liberal policies.”

“We have a wonderful quality of life here on the Treasure Coast, but I am deeply concerned about several issues that threaten it,” said Sykes, a Republican running in House District 54. “I’m the only candidate in this race that understands both the problems with the Indian River Lagoon and the solutions that will save it, and I am ready to fight for them. And there’s no doubt that we’ve got to protect our economy from illegal immigration and the expansion of Obamacare.”

In the 30-second spot, called “Conservative,” Sykes talks about his love of the Treasure Coast and says he is “concerned about our future.”

“Obama’s liberal policies have cost too much money and threaten our national security. That’s got to stop,” he says in the advertisement. “I’ll fight wasteful spending and the expansion of Obamacare. And I’ll work to defund sanctuary cities for illegal aliens. Conservatives have the answers. Together, we must lead.”

Sykes faces Republicans Dale Glading, Erin Grall and Greg MacKay in the Aug. 30 primary.

    Exactly how does a State Representative have the power to challenge the fiscal decisions of the Obama administration and the Federal Government? A state representative does not have the power to defund Obamacare. Furthermore, there are no sanctuary cities in this district. Does Mr. Sykes understand that the powers of a state representative are limited to local and state matters?
