Sun-Sentinel chooses a republican to go up against Wasserman- Schultz in district 23, and completely fail to mention Adam Hasner is district 22!
Update: Karen Harrington wins the Primary overwhelmingly for her district! She will go on to face DeathPac-Debbie Wasserman-Schhultz! Congratulations Karen Harrington… !
Karen Harrington for Florida’s Congressional District 23 Representative! Right On Weekly gives a hearty hear-hear!
Competition is a good thing!
The Broward County-based Sun-Sentinel newspaper has expressed its support for Karen Harrington congressional campaign to defeat Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. The Sun-Sentinel asked, “which of the five candidates can offer the most compelling contrasting vision versus Democrat incumbent Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and which Republican candidate would best be able to work in Congress to achieve goals?”Their response was that the “Editorial Board believes Karen Harrington best meets both requirements.”
The board also added that while the other primary opponents “make an earnest, convincing case for bipartisanship, but they don’t have the grasp of the issues that Harrington demonstrates.”Here is the Sun-Sentinel Editorial Board endorsement
Right On Weekly is greatly impressed with Joe Kaufman however he has not succeeded in gaining the exposure necessary to win the race at this time so we endorsed Karen because of her hard work, dedication and knowledge of the issues we face. She has really busted a move for South Floridians and has worked very hard to gain the necessary support of those like Susan B.Anthony List, Eagle Forum PAC, Maggie’s List , “ she pac”
The Republican primary for the District 23 seat in Congress comes down to two questions: Which of the five candidates can offer the most compelling, contrasting vision versus Democratic incumbent Debbie Wasserman Schultz? And, if elected, which Republican candidate would best be able to work in Congress to achieve goals?
The Sun Sentinel Editorial Board believes Karen Harrington best meets both requirements.
Restaurant owner Harrington, 48, who ran against Wasserman-Schultz two years ago, backs reforms to keep Social Security and Medicare. She believes an employer-verification system is a key step to bringing the illegal immigration issue under control. Harrington backs tax reforms that would institute a flat tax rate but limit exemptions to a handful. She believes that, beyond balancing the budget, the nation must continue cutting spending to reduce the national debt – which she says is a national security threat and a prime factor in the uncertainty creating anemic economic growth.
Of Harrington’s four GOP rivals, activist Joe Kaufman, 42, displays the deepest grasp of the issues.
The three other candidates in the race are businessman Ozvaldo de Faria, 48, local radio host Juan Eliel Garcia, 37, and attorney Gineen Bresso, 39. They make an earnest, convincing case for bipartisanship, but they don’t have the grasp of the issues that Harrington demonstrates.(Sun-Sentinel)
Harrington We Need!
In the 2010 General election, and with only a few months of campaigning, Karen pulled in nearly 40% of the vote against Democratic incumbent Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. After such a strong showing in her first attempt at seeking public office, and an outcry of support from her family and supporters, Karen decided to make another run for Congress. She is running for public office to bring common sense back to Washington D.C., work on behalf of small business, tackle the crippling debt and ensure that Social Security and Medicare reforms become part of the political discourse in Washington,D.C.
Karen is a small business owner. She has been running a family restaurant with her sister for the last 30 years. This first hand experience taught Karen the value of family and the importance of hard work. Karen’s roots to the community go back to 1969 when her parents moved to South Florida from western Massachusetts. While the family of seven lived in a one-bedroom apartment, her parents worked odd jobs to provide for their children as best they could. After years of saving they were able to open their first restaurant.
Karen’s life was shaped by the work and sacrifice she saw as a child. She has continued to give back through fundraising for youth organizations and as a cancer survivor, is a strong advocate for Cancer Awareness. Karen and her husband Glenn have three children, Ryan, Kyle and daughter Ashley.
She has been endorsed by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, Congresswoman Sandy Adams, Congressman Dennis Ross Congressman Steve Southlanderland, Congressman
Gus Bilirakis, Congressman Rich Nugent Talk-Radio Host_Mark Levin -Commissioner John Sims, of Cooper City and many more…
At least the Sun-Sentinel got one right but Adam Hasner leads in District 22 …not Lois Frankel
This is pretty funny stuff from the Sun Sentinel … since the fact that Lois Frankel was “verklempt” when Allen West suggested that Communism had taken over the democrat party. Lois was unable to recognize the instances of ginning up propaganda for Obamacare a way to SHOVE it down the throats of America, with Nancy’s famous line of “We have to pass it so you can find out what is in it“ and surprise … it was involuntary servitude taxation brough about by dead democrat voters in Florida! Lois just cannot see that…. Lois just cannot see her minority leader Pelosi ginning up support for the depraved occupy who defecated publicly on cop cars, stating “God Bless Occupy” ……well Lois when you get this out of your party, come back and we will see then…
The Sun Sentinel Editorial Board, though, gives the “nod” to Frankel and urges Democratic Party voters to choose her as the nominee.
Congressional District 22 Democratic Primary – Lois Frankel???
That’s because U.S. Rep. Allen West took his campaign to a north Palm Beach seat, leaving former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel and Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs to duke it out for the chance to face a Republican opponent in the redrawn District 22nd seat.
Both Frankel and Jacobs are eminently qualified to serve in Congress. The pair share similar views on most issues, and neither can claim the title of “shrinking violet”
Frankel, 64, is the more experienced of the two Democrats. She can throw sharp political elbows, but her reputation as a divisive partisan is overblown. In the Florida Legislature, Frankel worked with her Republican colleagues to pass legislation that benefited her constituency, including a major HIV/AIDS initiative and child care and women’s health care bills. Her tenure as West Palm Beach mayor was even more impressive. She showed her administrative chops and worked with the city’s business interests in overseeing a renaissance of the city’s downtown and the nearby Northwood community.
Frankel’s opponent in the Aug. 14 primary is Jacobs, 52, a three-term county commissioner from Pompano Beach. Jacobs has made a name for herself by advocating environmentally friendly land-use and transportation policies. She is particularly passionate about water and coastline issues. She has her own accomplishments to list, certainly, but Frankel’s more varied public service experience gives her the edge in this race. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/opinion/editorials/fl-congress-22-23-endorsement-0729-20120729,0,684716.story
They failed to report that Adam Hasner is even in the race, but was forced to acknowledge that he is a contender in a separate article! We do not mind the competition, because those who desire to LIVE, instead of being tax-slaves with those aligned with the depraved who are unable to admit that there is a grave and serious problem within the democrat party and in district 22 we will choose Adam Hasner not Lois Frankel!
TALLAHASSEE — Former state Rep. Adam Hasner, R-Delray Beach, has raised $558,000 in the latest fundraising quarter in his race for Congress, his campaign announced Monday morning.
This brings his total cash on hand to more than $1 million, the campaign said.
“We are truly thankful for all the support we have received and look forward to meeting new people every day who recognize the importance of this election and support my candidacy,” Hasner said in a press release. Sun-Sentinel
The Sun Sentinel believes if they ignore Adamn Hasner the Allen West republicans wil feel downcast and forget we have a real candidate in Adam who has brough in more than 1 Million in cas on hand for his race, who is doing that?? REPUBLICANS and citizens with a brain!
July 9, 2012 By Hasner for US House
Boca Raton – The Adam Hasner for United States House of Representatives campaign in Florida’s District 22 announced today that Adam raised $558,935 in the second quarter of fundraising in 2012. This brings the campaign’s total amount of cash on hand to over $1 million.
Adam Hasner said, “We are truly thankful for all the support we have received and look forward to meeting new people every day who recognize the importance of this election and support my candidacy.”
Campaign Manager Brad Herold stated, “We will continue to build on this positive momentum because our eventual opponent will be well-funded. Adam and our team look forward to spending more time meeting with voters and supporters who believe in Adam’s vision that a badly broken Washington must be fixed to get our economy going again.”
Then on August first they ran another story…where they did not bother to categorize the story for searching and the one above cannot be located in their archives… they are both buried over time… WHY??
Adam Hasner, a South Florida congressional candidate, is one of five honorary chairmen of the Jewish Americans for Mitt Romney coalition announced Wednesday.
Hasner is a former Florida House majority leader from Boca Raton.
He’s running for Congress in the Broward-Palm Beach County 22nd District. He’ll face the winner of the Aug. 14 Democratic primary – former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel or Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs – in November.
Hasner, along with state Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauderdale, were the Florida Jewish co-chairs for John McCain’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign.
The other national honorary co-chairmen of the Romney Jewish coalition are House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., former Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle and former U.S. Sens. Norm Coleman and Rudy Boschwitz, both of Minnesota.
Besides the five at the top, there’s a 39-member “national advisory board.”
It includes Boca Raton developer Ned Siegel, who’s a major player in the Republican Jewish Coalition.
Also on the list is Stanley Tate. He was at the center of a flap in the Jewish community in May when he spurred the cancellation of a speaking invitation by U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, at Temple Israel of Greater Miami.
Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, is President Barack Obama’s most prominent surrogate in the Jewish community.
Tate, co-chairman of Romney’s campaign in Miami-Dade County, resigned his membership in the synagogue over the Wasserman Schultz invitation. The temple asserted Wasserman Schultz’ appearance was “postponed,” but not “canceled.” Sun Sentinel
Right On Weekly has endorsed both candidates, Karen Harrington and Adam Hasner, and congratulate them on helping their citizen voters know that they are seeking their votes by displaying their district maps and a way for the voter to know they need their vote! The district maps have changed so much it is a source of confusion for citizens! We say think you for that!
Well we both know why the Sun Sentinel is burying stories of Hasner….
Our media has been caught red-handed stacking the deck for democrats for a very long time. Now that they have been caught, districts without a lot of hub-bub and fan fare may have republican candidates not even mentioned! Never the less Congressional District 23 will go to Karen Harrington and District 23 will go to Adamn Hasner and District 18 will go to Allen West! At least even the Sun Sentinel has to admit Debbie Wasserman Shultz is off her rocker and that means there is hope for the future that they will awaken to the real damage democrats have done to this country! Soon they will have to admit that Lois Frankel is just a script reader for democrats, and that Adam Hasner is leading in District 22 as well. I do strongly encourage Hasner not to focus on the presidential election but rather the needs of the citizens of district 23. Do not let the media dictate the story line, you do that, and keep it focused on the law of the land, our Constitution, as the central issues to all issues. Keep up the great work candidates! We will challenge the media when they are trying to manipulate the facts!
