After months of fundraising, campaigning, scheming, punching, and counter-punching, candidates across Florida saw the fruits of their efforts come (and go) in the couple of hours after polls closed at 7pm yesterday.
Many outcomes were expected, some were surprising, and a few were just plain bizarre. On that note, what’s up with Central Florida? I mean, they actually elected the prosecutor who botched the Casey Anthony Trial as their new State Attorney? Seriously? Oh well. I digress.
Anyway, this is a recap of election results and how things stand in some of the races we at Reaganista.com took a position on: Continue reading →
Unfortunately, turnout in primaries is usually very low even though many of the races are truly decided now rather than in November.
Over the last several weeks, we have identified some key races and offered #ReaganistaCertified endorsements. These are races in which we felt there was a lot at stake, which is why we decided to dedicate entire articles to them, such as the Florida Congressional District 9 GOP Primary race, where we encourage everyone to support John Q (undoubtedly the most important primary in the state).
Then there are other races that although we did not dedicate whole posts to, we have decided to offer recommendations.

To all you solid conservative Republican candidates, good luck! To you RINOs, backstabbers, and other such malcontents, not so much.
A lot of people have asked me why I have chosen to volunteer my time to the Sandy Adams for Congress race and the answer to that is simple, Sandy is the real deal.
I met sandy over 10 years ago while I was still a high school senior at Trinity Prep in Winter Park. I had already become active in the political process volunteering my time on campaigns and as a result was attending Republican Executive Commtitee meetings, Young Republican Club socials, and Republican Women’s Club lunches.
Sandy was the featured speaker at the Orlando Women’s Club for her then-race for State House District 33, and since I lived in the district I wanted to go hear her speak. I brought my mom, Gilda, with me. We listened to Sandy and we were so moved by her story.
We listened as she explained her desire to serve our country by joining the Air Force and meeting her husband. How she left that abusive marriage to protect her daughter. She had to work several jobs to make ends meet. Determined, she put herself through police academy to serve as a deputy sheriff. Continue reading →
As I wrote a few days ago, the GOP primary race for Congressional District 9 is probably the most important of all primaries in Florida because it will almost definitely determine if the detestable shrill leftist bigmouth Alan Grayson makes a return to congress. Most political pundits living in reality acknowledge that conservative Republican candidate John “Q” Quiñones is the Republican Party’s only hope to defeat Grayson in November. Grayson also knows it, which is why he has taken the unusual step of openly attacking John Qin the GOP Primary a lo descarado in hopes that he won’t be the Republican he squares off with in November.
One person actively campaigning against John Q is not once, but twice convicted criminal and phony Tea Party “activist” that goes by the name of Doug Guetzloe. The guy’s an overall shyster who among other things has been accused of using the Florida “TEA Party” name to undermine conservative candidates. Continue reading →
This week Gus “El Chivatón” Barreiro dropped a seemingly positive mail piece in Spanish to senior citizens in the State House district he seeks to represent (pictured below).
It features pictures of prominent Republicans–Senator Marco Rubio, former Governor Jeb Bush, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, and GOP Presidential Nominee Mitt Romney–with bold text that declares: “Gustavo Barreiro SUPPORTS our Republican leaders.”
Note how he uses his full, more Spanish-sounding name “Gustavo” instead of “Gus” in a Spanish mailing…but I digress. Continue reading →
