You may have heard about the special Congressional election in Florida yesterday.
In that race, an underfunded Republican David Jolly defeated a well funded (through national Democratic sources) and well-promoted Democrat Alex Sink.
Many in the media are claiming it’s Obamacare that sunk Sink, a former candidate for Governor in Florida.
Alex Sink was a moonbat on guns as well. She earned herself an F-rating from the NRA with her support of Obama-style gun control. David Jolly, on the other hand, supported gun rights.
Folks, Sink getting sunk is huge. It portends a the sinking of anti-gun Democrats nationwide in this fall’s elections.
(Tampa Bay Times) – If I’m a Democratic House member in any competitive district in America or a Democratic incumbent senator up for re-election this year in a moderate-to-conservative state like North Carolina, Arkansas, Colorado, Alaska or Louisiana, I’m waking up more than a little anxious about what happened in Pinellas County on Tuesday.
In Alex Sink, Democrats had a better-funded, well-known nominee who ran a strong campaign against a little-known, second- or third-tier Republican who ran an often wobbly race in a district Barack Obama won twice. Outside Republican groups — much more so than the under-funded Jolly campaign — hung the Affordable Care Act and President Obama on Sink.
