After Friday’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility, Democrats across the country are jumping at the opportunity to politicize the five-hour standoff that left three people dead, including a University of Colorado police officer. One of the first to capitalize on the attack – even before police determine a motive – was South Florida congressional candidate Annette […]

Sheyla Asencios has been hired as the Florida Democratic Party’s deputy political director in charge of Hispanic outreach, the party said Wednesday. She replaces the departing Jeff Branch, who was in a similar capacity until this month but primarily working on outreach to African-American communities. Branch was tapped to be political director of U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy’s […]

Annette Taddeo still clings to the impression that she is “middle class.” But that claim is becoming more tenuous with each passing day. For those who don’t remember, here is a quick refresher. Taddeo, Charlie Crist’s former running mate and a current Democratic congressional candidate, had openly proclaimed a middle-class lifestyle, even as she lives in […]

Annette Taddeo still won’t explain what she considers “middle class,” or at least she isn’t talking about it. Taddeo, a Democratic candidate for Florida’s 26th Congressional District, again refused to answer questions about her self-proclaimed middle-class lifestyle, one that includes a decidedly not middle class 6,500-square-foot Miami home assessed at $1.25 million.

While that’s accurate, the relevant question for her and […]

The Washington, D.C.-based political action committee EMILY’s List has put Miami Republican U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo on a list of 15 GOP incumbents “On Notice” for their re-election bids next year. The PAC, which supports pro-choice women candidates, lists three specific factors in putting Curbelo on its list. “In less than five months into the 114th Congress, we […]

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee put first-term Congressman Carlos Curbelo on notice Friday, predicting he will be a “One-Term-Wonder” in his highly competitive South Florida U.S. House seat. Specifically, the DCCC called out the Miami Republican for keeping a $10,000 contribution in soft money from his disgraced former House colleague Aaron Schock, who resigned in March following […]

Newly announced congressional candidate Annette Taddeo has already raised the ire of the National Republican Congressional Committee, who asks what constitutes “middle class”? In an opening attack email, NRCC spokesman Chris Pack says it certainly isn’t Taddeo. She is challenging first-term Republican U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo in Florida’s 26th Congressional District, which seesawed between the […]
