Skip to comments.Prominent Republican Donor: I Will Only Fund Pro-Gun Control GOP Candidates
Posted on 02/19/2018 9:58:52 AM PST by Simon Green
Al Hoffman Jr. is a Palm Beach County Real Estate Developer and prominent (i.e., deep pocketed) GOP donor. Mr. Hoffman has issued a public ultimatum on the Florida Republican Party . . .
For how many years now have we been doing this having these experiences of terrorism, mass killings and how many years has it been that nothings been done?
Its the end of the road for me.
Mr. Hoffman, also a former ambassador to Portugal, has donated millions to GOP candidates like Jeb Bush and former President George W. Bush. Hes also opened his wallet for Rep. Brian mast, and current Florida Governor Rick Scott. He served as chairman of Marco Rubios 2010 Senate candidacy,
Pare! Mr. Hoffman vowed . . .
I will not write another check unless they all support a ban on assault weapons,
Enough is enough!
Mr. Hoffman has gone so far as to threaten Gov. Scotts 2018 campaign for Democrat incumbent and known space cadet, Bill Nelsons seat in Congress. Nelson is a known enemy to the Second Amendment and Al Hoffman Jr. is now supporting Nelson through his temper tantrum.
The real question: will Republican donors follow Mr. Hoffmans lead? Will a slowing of candidate cash lead Republican politicians to break their pledge to their voters and push anti Second Amendment legislation and policy?
Its not like it hasnt happened. Florida Republican Turncoats like Sen. Anitere Flores and Sen. Rene Garcia followed the money (and their political ambitions) straight into the arms of the gun grabbers.
Goodbye and good riddance.
Assault weapons are ALREADY BANNED!......................
One great thing about Trump - he’s allowing us to identify and wash out all the deep state RINOs. Well, maybe not “all” but it’s a great start.
> Hoffman...has donated millions to GOP candidates like Jeb Bush and former President George W. Bush <
That pretty much says it all.
Good, the sooner Hoffman defunds the Bushies the better.
Geez I’m sick of this guy.
This is America, you are pretty much free to do anything legal you want to with your money. You are supporting folks who want to do things that might change that. I’m confused.
Local level Republicans pushing Australian style gun control are surfacing on facebook.
If he were more than a progressive tool, he would be looking at financing new secure mental lockups for the loony leftards. 39 visits the majority involving threats of violence and somebody isn’t in a secure facility?
Great, the NRA can drown this pissant by offering to replace the funds of any candidate he disowns.
This is one of the financiers of the Cheap Labor Express.
He’s been paying our politicians to keep the borders open and the laws unenforced for decades.
Now he wants us disarmed......
This doesn’t surprise me. I bet that there are many others in the country club donor class who’ve given to the Repubs but certainly do not have a problem with legislators putting the short end of the wedge in against law abiding firearms owners.
And as an average conservative voter, I’ll only vote for GOP candidates that fully support 2A, even if there are times when it may not be politically convenient to do so.
“Assault weapons are ALREADY BANNED!......”
That’s a common mistake.
Assault weapons are hard to get, but not banned.
I only contribute to Democrats (sic) that are pro 2A, pro Constitution and pro-life.
[note: (sic) because I usually use the term 'Rats, but will defer to any democrat that conforms to pro-2A/Cons/life with a proper label]
[[I'm covered, because the last democrat by any stretch was Zell "Spitballs" Miller]]
Its the liberal lifestyle and absence of God ,that is leadings too these deranged killers. Parents have failed their children and have failed our country.
Betting this buffoon has armed guards.
For all the license procedures and the constant paperwork you have to do, reports, etc., it’s banned in all but name...............
Jeb Bush supporter, what do you expect?
