Agriculture Commissioner candidate Denise Grimsley got the nod from a large contingency of her colleagues in the Florida Legislature Monday, adding another 32 backers just days after she announced three dozen endorsements from local elected officials from all corners of the Sunshine State. Grimsley, a Sebring Republican, has been a member of the state Legislature […]

Republican state Rep. Jason Fischer is holding a fundraiser far away from his Jacksonville-area district Nov. 2, and the invitation promises a special appearance from former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Mark “Super” Duper. While Duper is the headliner, Fischer’s host committee includes more than a few movers and shakers in South Florida politics, among them […]

When 2016 kicked off, the world was different, and our political prognoses reflected those false assurances. We didn’t imagine President Donald Trump on a national level. We figured Hillary Clinton would end up taking on Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio in the general election. And we expected the rhetoric would sound like the previous two or three campaigns. Regarding #jaxpol, we had a pretty good […]

One of the most compelling races in Northeast Florida this summer was the race for the House District 16 GOP nomination between Jason Fischer and Dick Kravitz. Fischer vs. Kravitz: a battle of closed fists and brass knuckles; charges and countercharges; character assassination, and social media excoriation. In other words, it was good politics and great theater. And […]

House District 16 candidate Dick Kravitz, in a Facebook post Wednesday, perhaps unwisely called Marion Hammer, past NRA president and executive director of Unified Sportsmen of Florida, a liar. The issue? Kravitz’s rating with the NRA. “Dick Kravitz DOES NOT have an A+ rating from NRA … No responsible candidate would claim a grade without first checking to find […]

Some big endorsements have fallen in for Dick Kravitz in House District 16 and for Clay Yarborough in HD 12. Kravitz was endorsed by former Jacksonville City Councilman Jack Webb and the man who beat him in a spirited battle in 2011, Matt Schellenberg. Both men bemoaned the tactics used against Kravitz. “Dick Kravitz is a proven leader who has demonstrated […]

When it comes to House District 16 Republican Dick Kravitz and the NRA, Kravitz must feel he’s being graded on a curve. Kravitz posted a flyer to his Facebook page touting an A-plus rating earlier Wednesday. The trouble is, the National Rifle Association didn’t give him an A-plus this year. And double trouble: Kravitz has already […]
