U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham isn’t running for re-election in Florida’s 2nd Congressional District, but that doesn’t mean the signature Graham family workdays have come to a close. Amid a major spending fight in Congress over funding to fight the Zika virus, the freshman Democrat from Tallahassee took to the west of her sprawling Panhandle district to combat the […]

As far as Super PACs go, the one that is backing two Republicans in a pair of Panhandle congressional race has a nice enough name. It’s called “North Florida Neighbors.” How genteel. How stately. How very north Florida. North Florida Neighbors announced Friday that it is supporting conservative state Rep. Matt Gaetz in his bid for Florida’s 1st Congressional District, along with the […]

A day after GOP primary opponent Neal Dunn went on TV attacking Obamacare, Mary Thomas released a new radio hit bashing the administration over its recent directive on gendered bathrooms. As first reported by POLITICO Florida, the one-minute radio spot features Thomas calling the new directive “outrageous.” “Men should use the men’s room, women should use the women’s room. It’s […]

Gwen Graham has decided not to run for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives. You can’t blame her: the redrawn map yanks the progressive heart out of Florida’s Second District, dividing — and diluting — Tallahassee. State Rep. Michelle Rehwinkel Vasilinda made rightist noises about guns and Donald Trump earlier this spring, sounding as though […]

Neal Dunn says his campaign is hitting the North Florida airwaves, the first 2nd Congressional District candidate to so. The Panama City urological surgeon and GOP nomination-seeker touts his experience away from politics in the commercial and criticizes those within it in a 30-second spot entitled “Outsider.” “Like you, I’m tired of the broken system in Washington – rising […]

Gov. Rick Scott came about close as one pol can get to endorsing another without pulling the trigger. At a private fundraiser hosted by the conservative Club for Growth, writes POLITICO Florida’s Matt Dixon, Scott singled out Thomas for special praise. “Mary came aboard with me right after I got elected back in 2010 and worked in my general […]

Republican congressional hopeful Neal Dunn didn’t wait long to stake his claim in the 2nd Congressional District. Following U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham‘s announcement Thursday morning the freshman Democrat would not seek re-election in her now-splintered CD 2, Dunn proclaimed he was the district’s best option to succeed her. “Florida Congressional District 2 needs a conservative leader to fight […]

It’s a crowded GOP field in the 2nd Congressional District, but so far there’s only candidate on the ballot. Republican Neal Dunn announced Tuesday his campaign is the first in the race for the newly redrawn CD 2 to qualify via petition, securing the necessary 2,298 verified signatures. The Panama City urological surgeon’s campaign said they received petitions […]

U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham‘s ever-busy comms shop released a new video Monday reviewing the congresswoman’s recent trip to Wakulla Springs, an ecologically sensitive tourist attraction and environmental linchpin for North Florida. Graham piloted a boat, took samples of the now-murky spring water, and spoke with local activists who are pushing for action to restore the springs and […]
