Over the last month, the campaign flyers have been inundating our mailboxes. Some attack opposing candidates, some display the candidate’s patriotism and family ties, and some wrap themselves in the strength of state or national political figures.

THE CAPITAL, TALLAHASSEE, January 14, 2017..........Following the state GOP's strong performance in the November elections, Republican Party of Florida Chairman Blaise Ingoglia overwhelmingly won a second term Saturday at the party's annual meeting.
In a vote of the party's executive committee, Ingoglia defeated his only competitor by a 2-to-1 margin, taking 152 votes to 76 for Christian Ziegler, the Republican state committeeman for Sarasota County.
County: 59,029 votes (62.32%).
State: 4,591,156 (49%), Clinton (48%)
USA: 276 electoral votes (AZ, MI not included), Clinton 218 (AZ, MI not included)
Both the Governor of Florida and incoming President of the United States are now both political outsiders. Neither Scott nor Trump ran traditional campaigns and received little support from traditional media. Newspapers overwhelmingly supported Hillary Clinton.
It was a huge night for Hernando County Republicans, as they won every election the party was on the ballot for. Along with Representative Blaise Ingoglia keeping his seat in the Florida House of Representatives for District 35 and John Emerson continuing on as Property Appraiser, the Board of County Commissioners also saw John Allocco unseat Democratic incumbent Diane Rowden in District Three and Steve Champion take over District Five. The Supervisor of Elections, Shirley Anderson was also re-elected.
I wholeheartedly appreciate this country and the freedom and opportunities it provides.
