RNC Banking on Florida, Opens 23 Victory Offices

By Javier Manjarres

The Republican  National Committee (RNC) has announced that it will open 23 victory offices throughout the state of Florida. The state and national Republican parties are making an aggressive play to solidify Florida for Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney.  The offices are positioned to help get out the vote in counties where there is a viable chance of shoring up and/or increasing GOP support. One county of significance, Broward County is slated for one office, but some officials are doubtful about its potential for success largely because of  the ineffectual county leadership that has cast a dark cloud of negativity over the local party.

A source that is active within the both the state and national parties has told the Shark Tank that confidence is very low for Broward due to the leadership of the local Republican party.

“Floridians are tired of President Obama’s hostility towards job creators and ready for new leadership in the White House,” said RNC Co-Chair Sharon Day. “Republicans across Florida are united in our efforts to defeat President Obama and elect Governor Mitt Romney as our next president.”

“Florida Republicans are ready for the historic election ahead of us,” said RPOF Chairman Lenny Curry. “The stakes are high, and there is plenty of work to be done, but with the RNC, RPOF, and the Romney Campaign partnering together, we will be victorious in November. I look forward to working alongside all the volunteers who will be at our Victory Offices as we fight for a more prosperous future for our state and country.”- RNC source

    Republicans can open all the offices they want, there is no fire in the belly of the grassroots Tea Party members in Florida. Sure we want Obama out and will cast a vote but there will be no money given and no Romney,LeMieux,or Mack signs in the yard.There were no McCain signs either in 2008.
    The “most conservative” ever Republican Florida Legislature for the past 2 years has been a Bust. No illegal immigration controls,no real reduction in state government, no real state pension or health insurance reform,no real tax reform, etc.
    Other States have real conservatives visibly running for the US Senate but not Florida….

    • Ana Gomez-Masllada

      Sorry, but I worked hard in the 2008 election and the signs in yards were plentiful as were a myriad campaign events, including many sign wavings. We lost Florida in 2008 only because our Governor betrayed the GOP by failing to campaign for our nominee or allowing the RPOF, then firmly in the control of his boy Jim Greer to do so.

      This time we have a fine Chairman in Lenny Curry and RPOF will not disappoint!

  • FloridaNative

    GenEarly, there may not be signs in YOUR yard, but there will be signs in MY yard and if I can afford to give, I will give. You only speak for yourself, not all of Florida.

    • Whats_Up

      I agree with the General. When I donate, it is directly to the candidate, NOT the Progressive RINO Party. The only candidate that I agree with thus far, other than Marielena Stuart, is Everett Rice, who is running for Pinellas County Sheriff.

  • BayCountyREC

    Bay County is no better. The REC leadership is completely incompetent. Our Chairman endorsed Herman Gingrich this spring. They are lucky so many HATE Obama up here that they really don’t have to do anything. That’s a good thing, because that is what they are good at! Good luck getting someone to walk a precinct!

  • Nimroy Hill

    All conservatives will give full consistent support to their party.are you one? if you are,let us all come to gather to gurantee a Republican victory in Nonember

    • jorgeciccone

      this country was founded by foreigners white black and asian, We must find a formula to allow the working inmigrants that want to find a home in America , not chasing them away or prosecute them. I am a Republican since Ronald Reagan , the best president this Country has ever had , at thepresent time I reside in South America where the image of americans couldnt be worse, we need to stop and think,.

    • GenEarly

      Which Party is that ? Comrade.

  • Lance

    Frankly, GenEarly, do know what cave you were in during the ’08 elections but our very republican county couldn’t keep up with the demand for anything McCain. Maybe we all knew it would turn out the way it has with obama in office. But, we would get bumper stickers in and they were gone by afternoon same for yard signs etc. Yards were filled with McCain signs here at least until the dems stole them. That was a HUGE problem here. So, come out into the sunshine!
    BTW, Connie Mack will win in November along with Mitt Romney!

    • Whats_Up

      Well, Lance. I can tell you that the General did more for the RNC in 2008 and 2010 than many members of the RNC do ALL year. And yes, he pulled the lever – not for Mc@ss, but for Palin. He also helped get Rubio on the “map” before the Tea Party took notice, too.

      As for Connie Mack – if this is all the RNC can do, we are all beyond saving. Kiss the US Constitution bye bye and welcome in the New World Order, ONE NEW monetary system, more taxation, regulations and hostile Fed takeovers of the banks, the oil industry and food industries for starters.

  • lance

    GenEarly, a big reason that obama won in ’08 is that many of the ubercons didn’t vote for president because “their guy” wasn’t the nominee. I can say that McCain wasn’t my first choice either but he sure became MY GUY once he was the nominee. I knew that he coulnd’t possibly be as bad as obama has been and sad to say I was right! Think, GenEarly and come out into the light from your cave!

    • GenEarly

      Lance, Quit spending so much time on the golf course with your RINO buddies. I voted for McLame in 2008 despite the stench.

  • MF

    If Obama gets 4 more years he will have no reason to moderate any of his far left positions. It will be a disaster for fiscal responsibility. We must unite to elect Romney – someone in the White House who will make the difficult but necessary choices.

    • GenEarly

      The Economic choices are: Depression or Default. Romney will not save the day because we are not living in Regan Era America.

      The election matters because it will determine the government response to the 2 choices above.Romney may allow you to keep a few of your remaining freedoms, Obama will relish martial law.

      I only have 1 question for the political posters here. Why did the Dept.of Homeland Security recently order 480 million rounds of 40 cal ammo?

      And you continue to think that the Elites in DC have your best interests in mind.

      • BoGo

        Gen, you are correct. Romney will not make the tough choices. He will continue to play “pretend & extend” until the system collapses in on itself. The result will be either accepting whatever draconion measures are forced on us by our creditors (e.g. allowing them to pillage those resources we haven’t been allowed to tap) or WW III. Regardless, he’s the only option that buys us time.

        Oh, and why 480 million of 40 cal? Because, as always, gov’t is inefficient. 300 million would do to accomplish their goal.

  • Nancy Celano

    There were McCain signs in our yard in 2008 and you can bet there will be Romney signs this year. Wish I could get them now.

  • Tom

    I was hoping to have a candidate I could get behind and volunteer time and donate money to do my all to remove Barry Hussein Soetoro Obama. But the GOP establishment has saddled us with Romneycare (R) vs. Obamacare (D) — a progressive / collectivist enabler vs. a PROGRESSIVE / COLLECTIVIST.

    Yes, I’ll vote for the lesser of two evils in November, simply because Obama presents an existential threat to this country I love. But Romney will take us down the same path, albeit at a slower pace. So other than making monthly donations to Senator DeMint’s Senate Conservatives Fund, I’ve disengaged from this election cycle. Perhaps if there were an attractive Senate candidate in FL I’d get engaged at that level, but we know what the GOP is producing at that end (not worth the bother).

    The GOP hasn’t nominated a true conservative since the 1984 race. Romney is the candidate of the GOP / K-Street / Wall Street establishment — they can actively work for him.

  • Perseids

    The RNC parachutes in to save the day for mittens and to fill their coffers. I say, go back to DC and pound sand. Take the RPOF with on your way out and … good riddance.
    Ford, Daddy Bush, Dole, McCain, and that most compassionate conservative, almost forgot that worthless slug Mel Martinez. A short list from the RNC’s hall of fame. One is left to wonder just whose side they are really on.
    Its about time to begin practicing repressing the gag reflex again. November 6th will be here before you know it.

    I am very disappointed how the Republican party forced Allen West to choose another district by pushing Hassner out of the Senate running to have to run in the current West district. Hassner is a hell of a lot better candidate than Mack will ever be.

    As for McCain signs, I couldn’t volunteer much before election day due to my work schedule and apparently because of that I was shunned by the local Broward chapter to help on election day so took it upon myself to drive around in my van with his signs taped around it. I’m one of those who voted just to keep Obama out and it will be the same reason this year.
