by Javier ManjarresAs Republicans across the nation continue to mull over whom they will support in the crowded Presidential field or who whey will support in their respective congressional and senatorial primary races, the consensus is clear that our common goal is to defeat President Obama and the congressional allies who are true believers in his failed socialistic policies.
One could argue that President Obama’s most prominent water-carrier is Congresswoman and DNC Chairman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of Florida. Congresswoman Wasserman-Schultz wears Obama’s failed policies on her sleeve as a badge of honor, and unlike many of her Democrat colleagues, she eagerly embraces those failures and spins them as successes- and does so while keeping a straight face. She is a tenacious fighter, but unfortunately she fights in the name of all the wrong causes, all the wrong policies, and even in the economic ruins that those policies leave in their wake.
It will take an individual with discipline and a thick skin to mount a strong enough campaign that will force Wasserman-Schultz to actively defend her congressional seat. I am proud to announce that I am fully supporting Karen Harrington and her campaign for Congress even at this early juncture in order to defeat Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in 2012. Karen’s decades of private sector experience will nicely contrast against perhaps the most pre-eminent career politician in the country today, and she is in position to build off of her previous campaign’s efforts and manage a comprehensive grassroots outreach throughout the district that none of her primary competitors are in a position to accomplish.
This challenge to ‘Fire Debbie’ must be a concerted effort by all Republicans, whether they live within Florida’s 20th Congressional District or not. As DNC Chaiwoman, Wasserman-Schultz has the power to direct Democrat Party resources against Republican candidates such as Congressman Allen West, Paul Ryan, Steve Southerland, and other races they deem necessary to dedicate their efforts towards. Waging a strong opposition campaign effort in her congressional district- a district whose boundaries are likely to change- will force her to spend time, energy, and resources in a district that she would much rather spend elsewhere. Typically, Wasserman-Schultz carefully selects her appearances in the district, and she only steps up her campaign efforts to solidify her base in the weeks preceding election day. A sustained grassroots effort will keep the heat on Debbie and force her to play defense.
I ask that all of you go to Karen Harrington’s www.firedebbie.com site and donate any amount you can, they all help- whether it’s $5, $10,$15,$25 or more to her campaign. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz can be stopped, but in order to defeat her, it’s on Republicans to galvanize behind one candidate early and really put the pressure on Wasserman-Schultz, and that’s why I am supporting Karen Harrington for Congress.
