With the news (Politico’s wiley Marc Caputo reported) that Senator Marco Rubio’s 2010 senatorial campaign manager Jose Mallea is considering a run for the Florida House of Representatives, the case can now be made that the world is coming to an end.
Well, Mallea’s probable candidacy may not signal the “End of Days,” but it could signal that the political sky in Florida is falling.
With Trump’s historic win last year, everyone seems to be lining up to run for something.
Note to me: Maybe I should run for office? Wait, wake up, You have way too many blonde and brunette skeletons in your closet. Nevermind
To be honest, normally I would never suspect that a former Bush operative and beer brewing enthusiast like Mallea would run for office, but Jose is a special breed.
Mallea is Mallea, and he works and comes off as a polished elected official.
Heck, since meeting him back in 2009, I suspected he could take a stab at public office with all the politically correct hot air that resonated from his mouth every time it shutters.
All of you arroz con pollo eating “Chivatos” (Reaganista, Correoso, Manzano, and the rest of the Miami Mafia) from the boogie down known as Miami-Dade County know of what I speak of.
In other words, Jose Mallea is ready for political prime time. He has developed all the necessary gluto-baby-kissing tools needed to run for office and win.
Mallea, who is of Cuban-Ecuadorian decent (don’t fault him for being part Cuban) has even hired Brett “Cowboy Boots” Doster of Front Line Strategies of Tallahassee, Florida, to manage his campaign.
We reached out to Mallea is morning for comment about the news that he may run for elected office.
Here is a texted statement Mallea sent over to the Shark Tank:
I care a great deal about our community and feel it’s important to give back in any way that I can. Public service is a great honor and a privilege. I hope the residents of house district 116 honor me with their vote and the opportunity to be their voice in Tallahassee.
I’m lucky to have a great network of friends who care about the process and will be in contact with all of them soon asking for their support.
Front Line Strategies will serve as my campaign consultants and manager. The team includes Brett Doster, Pablo Diaz and Matt Mohler.
Hopefully if elected, Mallea will keep in line with GOP principles because if he doesn’t, well…
Expect a sit down interview with Mallea in the coming weeks.
