George LeMieux Stresses Conservative Credentials At Broward GOP Meeting

Speaking before the Broward Republican Executive Committee, Senator George LeMieux stressed his conservative values and achievements when describing his time in Washington D.C.  LeMieux is the former chairman of the Broward Republican Executive Committee. He told the friendly crowd of nearly 300 activists that, unlike his rivals, he will not require any on-the-job training if elected; LeMieux was appointed by Gov. Charlie Crist to finish Senator Mel Martinez’s term in 2009.

LeMieux addressed the “Charlie Crist” issue saying Crist will always be a friend, but the day after Crist left the Republican Party, he endorsed Marco Rubio. RED BROWARD asked Senator LeMieux about several issues: rising gas prices, the loss of aerospace jobs on Florida’s Space Coast, the latest Wikileaks disclosure on GITMO and the Corruption problem in Broward County.

Also, BREC Chairman Richard DeNapoli stressed the need for Broward Republicans to continue their hard work throughout 2011. He mentioned the ongoing Democrat corruption debacle. DeNapoli talked about his weekly radio debates with Broward Democrat chair Mitch Ceasar on Jimmy Cefalo’s show (WIOD 610AM/100.3FM) every Tuesday morning; these debates serve as an opportunity to deliver the Republican message to all voters.

DeNapoli announced the BREC’s new blog, “The Broward GOP Insider” was named best political blog by a Sun-Sentinel contest. He said this unique blog is yet another vehicle to deliver a conservative message to Broward voters.

Space Race: Haridopolos Says Obama/Nelson Failed To Save Florida Jobs

FL Senate President Mike Haridopolos says President Obama and US Senator Bill Nelson (D-Toast) failed to deliver on their promise to save thousands of hi-tech jobs in Florida. With the shuttering of NASA space shuttle program, thousands of jobs on Florida’s Space Coast will disappear.

Obama and Nelson promised aggressive steps to save jobs on Florida. Instead, Nelson, a former champion of NASA, sits on his hands while the Obama administration doles out NASA contracts to friends in important electoral states.

In an Orlando Sentinel op-Ed piece, Haridopolos recounts concrete steps taken by Florida to save the industry:

“Despite limited resources, the Florida Legislature in 2010 increased space-program funding by more than 600 percent. That level of funding sends a strong message that Florida is serious about not only retaining its status as the gateway to space in America, but building its world markets as well.”

Haridoplos is a candidate for Nelson’s US Senate seat.

Could the inattention of Team Obama and Bill Nelson be more proof they do not expect to do well in Florida in 2012? Someone should remind them of President John F. Kennedy’s challenge that resulted in Americans walking on the moon in July 1969. After all, President Kennedy was a Democrat.
