Thousands of Florida conservative activists and volunteers are gathered today at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee for FreedomWorks’ FreePAC Florida conference.
FreedomWorks is a conservative, free-market advocacy organization that trains and mobilizes patriots nationwide to advance the cause of liberty and America’s founding principles. We Floridians especially owe them a debt of gratitude for diving into the GOP Florida Senate Primary in 2010 and endorsing Marco Rubio when few thought he had the resources or momentum to defeat the sitting backstabber governor Charlie Crist. As such, it is a pleasure to be here today mixing and mingling with my fellow patriots and lending my support to an organization that has done so much good around the country, and especially here in Florida.
The conference began today at 4pm and speakers include Judge Andrew Napolitano, Congressman Connie Mack, Trey Radel, Deneen Borelli, Matt Kibbe, and Glen Beck, who will end with a keynote address to the conference. If you are in the Central Florida area, I encourage you to come out. If not, feel free to watch the live stream I have embedded below, which can also be viewed on the FreedomWorks website.

Had he any genuine desire for that, he would have never waged an all-out character assassination campaign against the candidate who he knew all along was going to be the Republican nominee. Not only were most of Continue reading →
And tonight he lost a Republican Executive Committee straw poll he and his team were touting and using to mock his main primary opponent to a candidate that few in Republican circles know and doesn’t even register in the polls.
