Nan Rich says she’s in the race to the end.

The end, to Rich and more than 100 supporters who gathered Friday evening for the official opening of her campaign office in Weston, is winning the governor’s race in November.

“I am running for governor. And I will be in this race, in case anybody had any doubts, I will be in this race until the end. And the end to me is to be elected governor of the state of Florida,” she said.

Broward Democratic Party deals blow to Nan Rich debate push

Broward Politics blog

Rich took shots at Charlie Crist, who was elected governor as a Republican in 2006 and is now competing with her for the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott.

“I’m running on my record. I think it’s very important for people to run on their records. Not a record that I’ve had to reinvent or apologize for. I’m running on my record of fighting for middle class families, of fighting for strong public education, of fighting for seniors, of fighting for children, and health care for all Floridians. Those are just some. I’m also running on a set of principles that I’ve held throughout my adult life, the Democratic principles of putting people first….

“I haven’t changed my principles in any of my elections, and I’ve won them all. That’s the way I’m going to work to win this election. I think Florida is ready for a true, progressive governor….

“One thing is for sure: everybody wants Rick Scott to be a one-term governor. And then the only question is who is the person that’s going to replace Rick Scott?”

Groups Targeted by I.R.S. Tested Rules on Politics
Representatives of these organizations have cried foul in recent weeks about their treatment by the I.R.S., saying they were among dozens of conservative groups unfairly targeted by the agency, harassed with inappropriate questionnaires and put off for months or years as the agency delayed decisions on their applications.
But a close examination of these groups and others reveals an array of election activities that tax experts and former I.R.S. officials said would provide a legitimate basis for flagging them for closer review.
“Money is not the only thing that matters,” said Donald B. Tobin, a former lawyer with the Justice Department’s tax division who is a law professor at Ohio State University.“While some of the I.R.S. questions may have been overbroad, you can look at some of these groups and understand why these questions were being asked.”
http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/27/us/politics...
Putting off an application for years is never justified. Making up a list of who to target is totally illegal.

What kind of dufus states the questions were overboard but hey let's give the IRS a pass because well, you know, the group?

I will have to admit I did not follow her link but I did find an article that pretty much paints a clear picture of why they are moving:

"Genetic testing company 23andMe has been slammed with a $5 million lawsuit less than a week after the Federal Drug Administration ordered the company to halt sales.

Filed by San Diego, Calif. resident Lisa Casey, the class action lawsuit against the Silicon Valley company claims their genetic testing kits are meaningless, unsupported by scientific evidence and falsely advertised to consumers. The Google-backed company sells $99 spit-kits that consumers fill with a saliva sample, return for DNA testing and receive back with a glimpse into their genetic makeup and propensity for different diseases and conditions.

"It seems to me to be a very thinly disguised way of getting people to pay them to build a DNA database," Casey’s attorney Mark Ankcorn told NBC News.“I anticipate they are going to fight it and use every available resource they have to deny the claims.”

A 23andMe spokesperson said in a statement that they would not comment on legal proceedings.

On Nov. 27, the FDA ordered 23andMe to stop sales of its kits, stating that the company is in violation of U.S. law because the tests have not been cleared by the federal government to make medical claims."

Yes. You were WRONG about Media Matters. Good to see you admit your mistake for a change. However it is amusing to watch you run around in circles trying to connect dots. The fact is, the Tea Party was a new movement and groups associated with them applied for 501(c)4 status in far greater numbers than liberal groups. They were the new kid on the block and, as such, deserved and received extra scrutiny. I see nothing wrong with it.
I noticed you, in your ususal partisan manner, conveniently omitted the part of the IRS rules regarding 501(c)4 organizations that specifically deals with political campaigns. Typical FOX move.
"The promotion of social welfare DOES NOT INCLUDE direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office. However, a section 501(c)(4) social welfare organization may engage in some political activities, so long as that is not its primary activity." Got that? Repeat...the promotion of social welfare DOES NOT INCLUDE direct or indirect participation or intervention in political campaigns on behalf of or in opposition to any candidate for public office!
IMO, anyone who honestly believes that an organization like Waco Tea Party doesn't deserve additional scrutiny is brain dead. The IRS had no choice but to approve them as a 501(c)4 organization up and until such time as they participate in a campaign against a particular candidate, directly or indirectly. TICK TOCK.

Well, that was a nice tantrum.

After the IGA report came out stating that the IRS was deliberately slow walking conservative groups, 24 of these groups have been approved.

So much for amateurs interpreting IRS regs.

The issue remains as stated by the IGA report--the IRS was deliberately slow walking conservative groups apps.

Witness the USS Cole that happened under Clinton. He provided bushie boy with whatever intel he had before leaving office. And what did he do with it?

Grab a clue man, while a genius,Jefferson lived in a very different era. How different? Well the estimated US population in 1780 was only 1.4 million and over a third of that number were slaves. Jefferson had no earthly what the future would bring.
Ben Franklin thought the US Constitution would be scrapped within fifty years.

Can't wait until the liberal women in this country figure out there's a real war on women - and Christians - in Middle Eastern countries and Africa while they ignore gender income inequality in this administration and at the New York Times.
Stupid little hashtags won't affect the war on women that has been going on for decades - even centuries - in some parts of the world.
How refreshing it would be if they boldly spoke out to all Americans why this is going on, how long it's been going on, who is behind it and why and take a stand for women's rights and the real war on women.
But there's no political advantage for them in doing that. And why liberal women should be ashamed of themselves.
Conservative women aren't speaking out loudly enough either. But they aren't inventing petty invisible wars against women that don't exist as political ploys. And at least conservative networks are bringing more attention to it than any of the liberal propagandists.
We should all be ashamed for our collective silence.
