Here is video from this morning on Fox & Friends, where Florida GOP Rep. Allen West conceded defeat to Democrat Patrick Murphy in their 18th Congressional District race. West made the concession today following two weeks of recounts. According to this video, West trails Murphy by 0.58%. He said he did not believe he could get down to the required 0.5% margin to generate an automatic full recount of the vote.
West said he would decide, along with his family, in the days ahead what direction to go in as far as his political future. West’s name is already coming up as a possible candidate for the 2016 GOP Presidential Nomination.
It’s difficult to even keep up with all of Joe’s gaffes!
Here he is in FLORIDA citing the “Cleveland Plain-Dealer” Newspaper as “one of the major newspapers in this state.”

Here is a video report from Mobile, Alabama station WKRG on Gov. Mitt Romney’s massive rally today in Pensacola, Florida, which packed the Civic Center with more than 10,000 people. The report indicates there were even more people who could not get inside.
Here is one of 15 new Mitt Romney ads being deployed in various battleground states today. This one centers of the failure of Barack Obama in Florida, where home values have collapsed.
From his absolutely outstanding speech just delivered in “The Villages” Florida retirement community, here is video of GOP Vice-Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan hitting on all cyclinders as he talked with Senior Citizens about what is at stake in the 2012 Presidential Election. Ryan declared that Barack Obama is trying to use Medicare as a “piggybank” to fund his ObamaCare Government takeover of Health Care in America.
Here is video of an energized Mitt Romney speaking to a large and enthusiastic rally crowd this morning in St. Augustine, Florida. Romney is now in Florida campaigning on his own, while VP running mate Paul Ryan is in Iowa today campaigning there.
“He focused on ObamaCare instead of Jobs. Barack Obama – What a disappointment.”
Florida Governor Rick Scott tells Greta Van Susteran that Florida will NOT participate in Obamacare.
“Florida is not going to implement Obamacare. We are not going to expand Medicaid and we’re not going to implement exchanges.”, says Governor Scott.
Governor Scott now joins many other Republican Governors in rejecting the Mandate/Tax that IS Obamacare. I’m still trying to find a tally of the number of states that say they will refuse to comply.
Update: Florida Governor Rick Scott releases a statement regarding his decision to ignore Obamacare.
“After reviewing the impact of the Supreme Court ruling that gave Florida the flexibility to legally opt out of implementing one of the costliest provisions of the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as “ObamaCare,” Governor Rick Scott has decided two major provisions in the law are inconsistent with his mission to grow jobs for Floridians, make sure there is adequate funding for education, and to keep the cost of living as low as possible.”
