Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Florida 22nd news

From today's Palm Beach Post-

Alan Schlesinger - the Republican who got 10 percent in last year's Connecticut Senate race against independent Joe Lieberman and Democratic flash-in-the-pan Ned Lamont - is sniffing a possible congressional bid for the seat of new U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, D-Boca Raton. Schlesinger says he's been spending a few months a year in Palm Beach County for about 20 years and has family here. He recently spoke to the Boca Raton Republican Club.

The GOP wants to retake the marginally Republican seat Klein won from 26-year Republican incumbent Clay Shaw last year. But big-name local Rs have so far stayed on the sidelines.

If Schlesinger is the best the local GOP can offer, the Florida 22nd is likely to stay in Democratic hands till the next redisticting in 2012. At present the district is marginal and will always favor the incumbent, Democrat or Republican.
