Jeff Moran has hit the airwaves in a hotly contested GOP primary in the 2nd Congressional District race to replace U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham. In the Ft. White businessman’s first ad — a one-minute spot entitled “Hands On” — Moran seeks to grasp the mantle of consummate outsider in a 2016 election cycle where polished, traditional politicians are out […]

The group is the political arm of the Freedom Caucus, the most conservative wing of the Republican House majority and the formal legacy of the Tea Party movement. Caucus chairman U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio said Thomas was […]

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 […]
