Candidate Rally was a huge success!

Hundreds of energized Republicans from Manatee and Sarasota counties converged on Robarts Arena on Saturday, July 16 for a 2-county Candidate Rally.  The arena floor was packed with attendees eager to hear from all 42 Republican Candidates on the ballot in Manatee and Sarasota counties.  Candidates worked booths, shook hands and generally engaged in lively conversation throughout the day.  And in the best tradition of “Pie and Politics”,  slices of a wide variety of delicious pies from world famous Yoder’s were handed out to attendees .  It was old-fashioned politics at its best!  Check out the photos below from this extraordinary event

There is only one Republican Candidate in the race for School Board District 2 - Cindy Spray

3 candidates are currently running  for Manatee County School Board District 2:  Dr. Susan Agruso, Harold Byrd and Cindy Spray.  Of these candidates, only Cindy Spray is a registered Republican.  In fact, Cindy is also the Manatee County State Committeewoman for the Republican Party of Florida.  Cindy has long been a supporter of excellence in our education system.  Her campaign promotes getting “Back to Basics”, a common sense approach to improve the school system for all children and parents in District 2.  Cindy most certainly deserves your full support.

Letter to the Bradenton Herald

Dear Editor-in-Chief,

Senator Marco Rubio is a key and influential proponent for a strong and effective U.S. national security. His holistic view of American national security includes not only our military preparedness and international foreign policy leadership, but also our economic and energy security, public health security, immigration/border security and humanitarian rights policies. He is a recognized international advocate for our American national interest, a vital influencer in the global world of competing sovereign interests and the strongest proponent for the values of human rights so dear to our hearts. As a first-generation offspring of parents who fled a Communist regime in Cuba, he completely understands the suffering and inhumanity of Communism and authoritarianism.

While voters generally focus on “kitchen table” issues in election years, recent events, including the COVID pandemic, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, vital shortages and supply chain disruptions, rising food scarcity, skyrocketing inflation, and elevated energy costs, all inform us of the interrelationship between our daily lives and aspirations and the unforeseen dynamic shocks that impact America on the larger world scene. There is no better prepared nor more articulate political leader on international affairs in the United States Congress than Senator Rubio. For that reason alone, among many, he deserves your continuing support and your vote in November.

His Senate challenger, Val Demings, an avowed protégé of Nancy Pelosi, cannot hold a candle to him on keeping America safe and delivering on America’s promise! Florida needs our Senator to continue his hard work!

Dear Editor,

Senator Marco Rubio is a key and influential proponent for a strong and effective U.S. national security. His comprehensive grasp of American national security includes not only our military preparedness and international foreign policy leadership, but also our economic and energy security, public health security, immigration/border security and humanitarian rights policies. He is a recognized international advocate for our American national interest, a vital influencer in the global world of competing sovereign interests and the strongest proponent for the values of human rights. As a first-generation offspring of parents who fled Communist Cuba, he viscerally understands the inhumanity of Communism and authoritarianism.

While voters generally focus on “kitchen table” issues, recent global events, including COVID, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, supply chain disruptions, rising food scarcity, and skyrocketing inflation and energy costs, all inform us of the interrelationship between our daily lives and the unforeseen dynamic shocks that impact America on the larger world scene. There is no better prepared nor more articulate political leader on international affairs in the United States Congress than Senator Rubio.   Florida needs our Senator to continue his hard work keeping America safe and delivering on America’s promise!! He deserves your vote in November.
