Is Marco Rubio really stronger in swing states (including Florida) than Jeb Bush?

Senator Marco Rubio has gone from April’s flavor of the month in the Republican primary field to being the seasonal blend of choice. At the same time many in the national punditry seem to be writing off Governor Jeb Bush’s chances to secure the GOP nomination. A set of swing-state polls released by Quinnipiac University […]


Flashback Friday: Jeb Bush and the Confederate Flag

In 2001 Governor Jeb Bush very quietly removed a version of the Confederate Battle Flag from the row of flags outside the Florida Capitol. While in hindsight this might seem like an act of political courage, it is worth remembering Jeb Bush comes from a Connecticut Yankee family and into the mid 2000’s the majority […]

Iraq, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton

When reporters challenged him, he would snap in public, When members of the legislature attempted to meet with him on […]


Will some south Florida Democrats defect to Marco Rubio thanks to President Obama’s foreign policy?

I will be perfectly honest — I sat with folded hands in recent weeks as I watched some of my fellow progressives in south Florida take to social media to attack President Obama’s Middle East policies and cheer Benjamin Netanyahu on to victory in Israel’s recent General Election. Some of these same progressives have attacked the […]


Kartik Krishnaiyer to start Democrats for Jeb!

As most of our readers  know well, I take pride in all things Florida.  Today, our state and the people of the nation are faced with a momentous prospect.  Our former Governor Jeb Bush has an opportunity to be the first Floridian ever to occupy the White House. After much reflection, I have decided not […]


The Rubio Renaissance

We’ve long mocked the foreign policy credentials and domestic rhetoric of Florida’s Junior Senator, but it appears at this point in time, Marco Rubio is making a very calculated, somewhat quiet yet effective comeback on the national stage. Rubio has risen from being falling star, dead Presidential candidate and potentially endangered one-term Senator to top-tier Republican […]
