Boycott May End
The St. Petersburg Times is reporting Alex Sink, Ted Deutch and Dan Gelber are attempting to have the Democratic candidates campaign for two days before the Jan. 29th primary. New Hampshire, Nevada, Iowa and South Carolina must release the candidates from the pladge.
CFO Alex Sink, Sen. Ted Deutch and Rep. Dan Gelber will hold a news conference at the Press Center to announce a formal request to Democratic Party chairs in Iowa, N.H., Nevada, and S.C. to release the candidates from the no-campaign pledge. The goal: To allow Dems to campaign in Florida for two days prior to Jan. 29.
Republican Party of Florida Chairman Jim Greer attempted to raise questions about the candidates character if they broke the pledge. Alex Sink gave the brilliant response, ""Shall I use another one of my Southernisms? That's B.S."
Greer questioned the candidates character for not campaigning in Florida. Now Greer is quiestioning the candidates moral fiber for possiblely stumping in the Sunshine State. Greer is awfully conflicted. Perhap Greer 1.0 wants Florida voters to hear Hillary, Obama, and Edwards articulate their positions on the issues. Bizarro Greer wants to shamelessly use voter disenfranchisement for chaep political gain. (See: gay marriage.)
"You can't waver from fundamental values and principles of the Republican Party," said Greer.
Jim, I couldn't have said it better myself.
