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.
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 →
Every conservative in Florida needs to care about the GOP primary race for the newly-drawn Congressional seat in Central Florida. Why? Because whoever Republicans in that district nominate will likely determine if the most vitriolic shrill leftist bigmouth to ever serve in congress returns to torment us for another term. I’m referring, of course, to the detestable Alan Grayson.
As you may recall, Grayson was elected in 2008 and then was defeated in 2010 by Congressman and patriot Dan Webster after serving only one term. But a humiliating defeat two years ago isn’t keeping him away.
Now he wants to run for the newly-drawn Congressional District 9 seat that encompasses Osceola County (Kissimmee and surrounding areas) and parts of Polk and Orange. The district is largely comprised of Puerto Ricans, who lean–although not blindly or overwhelmingly–Democrat. As such, Grayson would stand a decent shot at being elected to this seat if we nominate the wrong person. Continue reading →
