Big news from Florida. Republican takes Democrat Senate Seat.

From National Republican Senatorial Committee:

Big news from Florida tonight. A Republican won a special election that all the experts predicted would go for the Democrats. The reason? Just like Senate Democrats Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieau, and Mark Udall – this Democrat candidate embraced Obamacare. Tonight, she delivered her concession speech.

In the words of political analyst Chuck Todd, “Most of the Senate battles are in a lot LESS friendly places for Dems than #FL13.”
This is a good sign. We may actually take the Senate! It is time for Republicans to open their wallet and win the Senate. Here is a link to make a contribution to the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

  1. Rod, I would offer another alternative to the NRSC. For folks who are looking to elect a conservative rather than simply a Republican I trust the Senate Conservatives Fund to more wisely spend my money. I hope readers here will check them out as well as their endorsed candidates. They got behind Marco Rubio early against Charlie Crist in Florida for the Republican nomination and Rubio won. I quit giving to the Republican Party in 2010.
