Suzanne Kosmas is Running

Democrat Suzanne Kosmas announces she is challenging Tom Feeney for the District 24 seat.

"I will be an independent and effective voice for working families, children and seniors in this district, dnd ensure that their interests - not the special interests - are represented in congress," Kosmos said. "This is a time for change in Washington, and I will work towards building consensus rather than engaging in lock-step partisan politics."

She will face longtime Feeney nemesis Clint Curtis in the primary. The smart money is that Kosmas would make a better opponent than Curtis. The establishment will back her. The Florida Democratic Party and DCCC viewed Curtis as a sure loser. Kosmas was the former Democratic leader in the Florida House. Feeney conceded she is a better candidate.

Feeney said, noting he's glad Kosmas has legislative experience. "I would rather run against someone with a record. It's a bad environment for politicians. I'll post my record against anyone."

I received grief for backing Christine Jennings over Jan Schneider. Jennings nearly won a red district noted for voting machine problems. Curtis can't raise the money to compete with Feeney. He doesn't have a chance. Netroots support alone isn't enough.

Did you know Kosmos is Ethically Challenged as well!

See Below:

But Kosmas has seen controversy too.

In 1998, she was part of a two-member board that recommended Volusia County purchase a $25,300 sculpture for a local library -- more than twice the county's allocated $12,000 budget.

Artist Doris Leeper withdrew the entry after it was revealed that the two women were friends and that Leeper had contributed $1,000 to Kosmas' political campaign.

"It was not a conflict of interest in my mind," Kosmas said. "This was a local artist who did phenomenal work."

Do the right thing vote Clint Curtis for Dist 24.
