Re-posting in “normal text” some FReepers get all excited about using bold/large characters when posting.. just FYI
UPDATE FROM THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL (FreeRepublic EXCLUSIVE !)
I Had 2238 hits on my site yesterday! A record for my campaign! Many thanks to the FReepers who are following my campaign which undoubtedly contributed to this total.
Today we attended an invigorating Christian Conservative event hosted by The Christian Chamber of Apopka, FL and arranged by Chairman Mark Goldstein. It was held in Orlando in the late PM and we arrived to a warm welcome and an absolute Hubbub of patriotic activity around 6 PM. As usual my wife Les set up the best looking table in the room in under five minutes! (She has become very proficient at this!) We Hob-Nobbed for a couple of hours, handed out our literature, chatted with voters & were very positively received. As usual we were accompanied by Tom Jefferson, The Genius of Liberty (pictured below I am holding his book in my hand) AND “Ollie” our GOP Elephant.
Between eight and nine PM I and other candidates mounted the stage and answered a series of of questions. Folks applauded and agreed with my answers. Later the Chairman actually hugged me as he pledged his vote. Many other folks came by our table upon exit to congratulate our Campaign and promise to vote for my candidacy. We were invited by “Momentum Radio” to an interview on their morning show.
Marco Rubio did not show or have anyone speak for him. I chatted with one of his assistants toward the end and bet him that if I lose the Primary, Marco and I will be confronting each other again in 2012 - since there is no way Marco has what it takes to win against Charlie Crist! I bet the guy 5 bucks on the wager (which he accepted) AND sent ANOTHER challenge to for Marco to come out of hiding and debate me!
This is where you and Dr. Escoffery are way off-base.
You should not be attacking Rubio in this manner - when Rubio wins the primary, the losers of the primary should back him, and they should refrain from this kind of attack during the primary campaign. This kind of campaigning plays right into the hands of the Democrats.
I guess Escoffery wasn't paying attention when Rubio came from a long, long ways down to drive Crist out of the GOP primary.
Your guy gets no credibility with blowhard comments like that one.
