Groundhog Day is over a week away, but those who attend Tuesday night’s Jacksonville City Council meeting will feel inevitable deja vu. Some will think it’s 2016. Others will think it’s 2012. That’s because the fervent arguments they’ll hear tonight on Jacksonville’s perpetual hot-button issue — expanding the Human Rights Ordinance to LGBT people, via […]

Last week, Florida Family Action endorsed Janet Adkins in the very contentious Nassau County School Superintendent race. On Tuesday, FFA doubled down on that position, after “some Kathy Burns supporters were upset and expressed that they felt Burns was a conservative, that we ‘had not done our research’ and therefore the statements made were unfair.” Not […]

Endorsements abound in the House District 11 Republican race, and candidate Sheri Treadwell recently scored two that don’t necessarily jibe on all issues. State Sen. Travis Hutson and Florida Family Action President John Stemberger both endorsed Treadwell in recent days, lauding her with similar honorifics. Hutson recognized Treadwell’s “conservative convictions.” Stemberger called Treadwell a “rising champion for our conservative values.” […]

One would be wrong. According to the good folks at DefendJaxFamilies.com, an adjunct of Florida Family […]

The Jeb Bush-Marco Rubio mano-a-mano duel for the Republican nomination has certainly split Florida Republicans, though a majority of the establishment GOP has tended to side with Team Jeb. Then there are those who choose to remain neutral, such as John Stemberger, president of the Florida Family Policy Council, one of the leading social conservative organizations […]

Florida’s presidential primary election doesn’t take place until March, but as the nation’s largest swing state, it’s never too early to begin handicapping the candidates. That’s the attitude apparently at John Stemberger‘s Florida Family Action group. It announced Wednesday that it will host an analysis/straw poll of the GOP candidates next week in Maitland. Among […]

Florida Family Action is emailing Jacksonville voters, offering its support to “City Council candidates [who] oppose granting special rights based on ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ and support Natural Marriage and Religious Freedom.” The message also opposes candidates who support what the group calls “gay rights” legislation. The group’s “voter guide” lists the city council candidates […]
