FLORIDA: Democrats Take Brutal Loss in ‘Must Win’ Race...

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/...

Privately regarded by Republicans as a weak candidate, the former lobbyist Jolly overcame both funding obstacles and a Libertarian party challenger who received five percent of the vote to beat Democrat Alex Sink.

The race was widely considered a referendum on Obamacare, with top political prognosticators calling it a “must win” for Democrats in the weeks leading up to the election.

A Sink loss would "would almost certainly be regarded by dispassionate observers as a sign that President Barack Obama could constitute an albatross around the neck of his party’s nominees in November,” Stuart Rothenberg, one of the most highly respected political handicappers in the country, wrote in Roll Call.

“Tonight, one of Nancy Pelosi’s most prized candidates was ultimately brought down because of her unwavering support for ObamaCare, and that should be a loud warning for other Democrats running coast to coast," National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Greg Walden said.

Wow. A Republican won a republican district that has had a republican congressman for years. Tomorrow's startling news, the sun rises in the East.

errr nope....from the link story.......

The district, vacant because of the death of Rep. Bill Young, leaned Democratic. Obama won the district by four points in 2008 over John McCain and by a point over Mitt Romney in 2012, and Rothenberg analyzed that, "all things being equal, Sink has enough advantages to produce a narrow but clear victory."

Despite a libertarian in the race siphoning off 5% of the conservative votes the republican candidate was victorious...

November is coming..........

Obamacare’s Ground Zero
Slate, March 9, 2014

Florida’s 13th congressional district may be where Democrats learn to live or die with the Affordable Care Act.

By David Weigel

"Florida’s 13th is bluer than the rest of Florida, and much bluer than the states—Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina—that will decide control of the Senate."

Alex Sink did not ask to be Obamacare’s representative in Florida. It just happened a few months ago, after Republican Rep. Bill Young passed away. He’d spent 53 of his 82 years in politics, most of them representing what became Florida’s 13th district, which he shaped and built with federal money. In 2011, the state shrunk the district to fit most of Pinellas County, a peninsula resting between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. Republicans watched the county go for George W. Bush, then for Barack Obama, then for Barack Obama again. They watched it vote for Alex Sink, in 2010, when she ran for governor.

“This district was trending Democratic,” explained Jonathan Collegio, a spokesman for the conservative 527 American Crossroads.“I worked at the National Republican Congressional Committee in 2006, and I remember looking at maps and thinking: If Bill Young ever retires, this seat is gone.”

You can't buy insurance if you don't have a job. Most American's are tired of the failed outcomes of liberal leadership.

Best hope is that the whiner Reid is put in the minority.

Ohio does not list this species with limits, so it must be considered varmint.

It shows how unpopular the two regime priorities (amnesty, Obamacare) are

The GOP candidate had a lobbyist background, he was outfundraised by the better known socialist candidate

And he still won

Karl estimates a 7-10 pickup in the Senate, and 10+ in the House this fall, barring any establishment screwups

Best hope is that McConnell is removed as GOP conference leader, in favor of Ted Cruz
