Two Broward State House races just got a bit more crowded. Robert Lee Lynch is seeking the Democrat nomination for the District 95 seat currently occupied by Rep. Hazelle Rogers. Lynch will face off against Roxanne Valies and Patrick Jabouin.
Lynch and his wife Ruth Roman Lynch are local Democrat consultants. In 2011, BrowardBeat.com exposed how Lynch and his wife, “Asked a judicial candidate last year for $1,000 to escort him through churches, give him ‘access’ to the black community and send out an e-mail blast to 2,500 voters.” At the time, Ruth Roman Lynch was the first vice chair of the Broward Democratic Party.
Sajan Kurian of Pompano Beach is seeking the Democrat nomination for the House 92 seat held by the term-limited Rep. Gwyn Clarke-Reed. Kurian is no stranger to Florida House politics. He serves as the district secretary for Rep. Shevrin Jones. His only opponent is Whitney Rawls of Pompano Beach.
Local Republicans are working hard this Saturday for Mitt Romney, Connie Mack and local GOP favorites. Early this morning the Broward Republican headquarters filled with volunteers stuffing mailers into envelopes and making phone calls. Broward Republican chairman Richard DeNapoli emailed thousands of activists and flooded social media with a call to action. Over at Broward Beat, Buddy Nevins wrote how the Republicans are eclipsing the Broward Democrats under the lackluster leadership of Mitch Cesar (D-Comedian):
“The question will be if the Obama ground operation here — an operation that has remained largely invisible to this voter so far — can produce the big turnout that Democrats need.
Local Democratic activists candidly say they doubt whether Broward can deliver. The excitement is gone and the local party is divided.
Meanwhile, Broward Republicans are on fire.”
In addition to the GOP HQ, volunteers are working at the Romney offices in Fort Lauderdale and Coral Springs.
The BLOG COMMENT OF THE DAY award goes to “at least” who chimed in over at BrowardBeat.com. Buddy Nevins’ post on why Ilene Lieberman should not be a judge got this comment:
Mango theft is no laughing matter. The war on mango thieves is more important that public corruption. Mango thieves look out–the powerful Broward law firm of Becker Poliakoff is throwing a fundraiser for Ilene Lieberman. All those partners, associates, clients and their spouses will line up to fund Lieberman’s war on fruit theft. Someone should post their names and amounts given so all of Broward county can thank them!!!
Winter is coming.
