GOP debate in Wasserman Schultz district

No need to wait for the GOP Congressional District 23 debate to start, well, debating when the planning for the debate started.

We wrote a blog yesterday saying that the 7 p.m. June 28 debate at the Old Davie School House will be minus one key candidate: Karen Harrington had already scheduled a fundraiser for that night.

Karen Harrington spokesman Anthony Bustamante said yesterday: "We literally got notice like a week and a half ago," Bustamante said. "We already had prior engagements that evening. We have already been at two other forums -- it's not like we haven't participated in getting Karen's message out."

BREC sent an email to candidates about the debate June 1 and Bustamante responded June 3 so if we want to get technical that was closer to two and a half or three weeks. But let's hope the candidates come up with some meatier issues to debate than the scheduling of the debate.

Ozzie deFaria, Joe Kaufman, Gineen Bresso and Juan Eliel Garcia have confirmed. The GOP contenders are competing for the chance to face U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Weston) who has raised more than $2 million and is the DNC chair.

who are all these LOSERS?
Isn't Karen Harrington a cross dressing transexual?
Another freakshow for the Repiggies.
One crackpot Repiggie from Broward (Alan West) is enough!


harrington and her so called advisors know she is a poor debater and must stick with a prepared script.


Another fabricication in a long list 0f several.


Karen is scared of debating the only true, conservative Republican woman in the race, Gineen Bresso!

GINEEN BRESSO is the only Republican candidate who can beat Debbie-Wasserman-Schultz!

To defeat Debbie Wasserman Schultz we need the most electable candidate and that candidate is Juan Eliel Garcia.
Vote Juan Eliel Garcia for Congress District 23!



Joe Kaufman is the only candidate who is a lifelong Republican with the national security experience in counterterrorism activities and who has the economic plan that will get South Floridians back to work. Www.KaufmanforCongress.com


heh if michelle bachman is endorsing her I know then that Karen is off her rocker - she's actually got that endorsement on her home page! what kind of an idiot would do that especially given bachmans dismal record? Karen must be a fool.

Can't wait until this national embarrassment Wasserman Schultz and the national disaster Obama slip quietly into permanent retirement. Then our country can begin to heal from the damage. Debbie has been the most divisive member of Congress and the voters have had enough. If you want to help retire Debbie for good then support Joe Kaufman for congress. www.kaufmanforcongress.com
