Endorsement from Michael DiTerlizzi

Our community is very different from the rest of South Florida, and we like it that way. We like things a little slower, we enjoy large open green spaces, and a clean environment. Our four story height limit and our low density is the envy of many Floridians. I mention…

Endorsement from David Dees

“One of the key lessons I have learned, in over 30 years in law enforcement, is that public service requires a servant’s heart, and a selfless passion for seeing citizens have a prosperous, safe environment in which to live, build businesses, and raise their families. Calvin Turnquest is a leader…

All Aboard Florida Forum – Why I Won’t Be There

I will not be attending tonight’s All Aboard Florida forum in Stuart. I cannot make it clearer that, as a true Constitutional Conservative, I believe in local governance and in allowing state and local elected officials to do the job they’ve been elected to do. Simply put, take out the…

Billy & Karen Vaughn Respond to Carl Domino’s Personal Attack on Me

My Response to Carl Domino’s Cheap Personal Attack

Carl, I honor your service to our country, as I honor the service given by every man or woman who has ever worn the uniform. I regret that you’ve chosen to diminish that service, as part of a shabby political attack on me. Carl, you don’t seem to have taken…

The Smell of DCCC Fear

“I love the smell of DCCC fear in the morning.” On Monday, Nancy Pelosi’s DCCC (the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) launched the first, of what will likely be many, attack ads against my campaign. The good news is, that they understand what many don’t yet grasp – I am the greatest…

A proud black conservative

Do you find me scary? If you were a Democrat, you would – because I’m a proud black conservative who absolutely destroys all of their preconceived notions about who would support the Tea Party… and who the Tea Party would support. They simply can’t imagine that a man, with my profile, won’t…

This is personal

It’s time for an honest conversation about our immigration system in Washington. There has been more than enough “talking,” but it’s all been in the form of canned party barbs, with little more than name calling and blaming involved.
