Broward Republican Chairman Heads Delegation To Trump White House

Last Wednesday, Broward Republican Executive Committee (BREC) Chairman Robert Sutton met with White House officials to discuss how local Republicans can help further the agenda of President Donald Trump. The delegation included Sutton, his wife Teresa, BREC Vice Chair Celeste Ellich, SWBRO President Jay Narang and Republican Party of Florida Director of Party Development Brooke Renney. (This reporter also attended the meeting with The White House Office of Political Affairs). In addition to the meetings, the Broward delegation received tours of The White House, the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, the Rayburn House Office Building, the Longworth House Office Building, and the U.S. Capitol Building.

With the assistance of Senator Marco Rubio, Congressman Brian Mast and Congressman Ron DeSantis, the Broward Republicans were able to watch the U.S. Senate debate the repeal of Obamacare from the Senate gallery. From the House of Representatives gallery, members of the Broward delegation witnessed Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Out Of Touch) declare her opposition to an important defense spending bill. But the real highlight of the trip came when First Lady Melania Trump greeted Chairman Sutton and the other Broward Republicans. You can view highlights of trip by clicking here.


REDBROWARD recommends Broward voters support Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Pam Keith in the upcoming US Senate primary election. Rubio and Keith are far superior to their primary opponents. Rubio is running against Sarasota businessman Carlos Beruff, while Keith is facing a pair of DC Congressmen, Alan Grayson and Patrick Murphy.

Even though Senator Marco Rubio came up short in the Republican Presidential primary, he has still been at the forefront of issues affecting Florida. Rubio was one of the earliest voices calling for a massive response to the Zika virus. Now, the virus has spread to numerous cities including Miami, Miami Beach, and Tampa. Rubio continues to urge Washington lawmakers to put politics aside and match the Zika fighting efforts of Governor Rick Scott.

Carlos Beruff has been featured on REDBROWARD several times. While he has excellent ideas to help Florida’s economy, Beruff would be learning on the job about other serious issues including the war on terror. Florida needs the steady leadership of Senator Marco Rubio.

In the Democrat primary, REDBROWARD urges voters to support US Navy veteran Pam Keith. Keith, a NAVY JAG officer, now specializes in labor law. We were impressed with an interview she gave us last year regarding Middle East issues. While in the NAVY, Keith served in the Middle East in many important top-level positions. Unfortunately, the media and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s DNC has all but ignored Keith. Instead they focused on the empty suit known as Congressman Patrick Murphy. The two term Congressman who barely beat Allen West four years ago, is not ready for prime time. A recent expose by CBS 4 Miami showed gaping holes and lies in the Murphy resume.

Congressman Alan Grayson should never get close to the US Senate chamber.

In its recent endorsement of Pam Keith, The Miami Herald said, “This long-shot candidate brings one of the freshest perspectives to Florida politics heard in a long time. She is accomplished, credible — and has been left out in the cold by state Democratic leaders and her two better-known opponents. And that, too, is a shame for democracy.”

“Ms. Keith has an engaging personality and a world view that cuts through that political fog. She’s a realist and knows she’s a long-shot, but makes a good case for the seat she’s pursuing: ‘The military, foreign policy, labor policy — these are federal issues,’ she told the Editorial Board. ‘I know the federal sphere.'”
