Alan Grayson consistently leads Patrick Murphy in statewide polling

Florida Atlantic University released a new statewide poll conducted by the College of Business showing that Rep.

Alan Grayson’s Ted Cruz Stand is Worrying

Senator Ted Cruz is a reactionary, right-wing politician who is in many ways a 21st Century cross between Richard Nixon, Joseph McCarthy and Barry Goldwater.

Guest Column: Alan Grayson lets down his supporters with desperate moves

By Sean Phillippi Rep. Alan Grayson surprised many by recently coming out to support Sec. Hillary Clinton for President over Sen. Bernie Sanders. Personally, I am an unabashed supporter of Sec.

GUEST COLUMN BY SEAN PHILLIPPI: “No good, just bad and ugly for Grayson”
