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 […]

Republican candidate Neal Dunn will again take to the airwaves for another round of early communication with voters in the 2nd Congressional District. The Panama City urological surgeon ran another ad, his second of the 2016 cycle. No other CD 2 candidate has yet advertised on television in what is shaping up to be an intense GOP primary. […]

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 […]

Democratic U.S. Rep. Gwen Graham says she’s giving up on Congress and “seriously considering running for governor in 2018.” In an early Thursday email, the Tallahassee congresswoman wrote, “I have major news, and I want you to hear it first” (even though at least two news media outlets actually broke the story first). “The politicians, lobbyists and […]

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 […]
