ORRA Congressional Meet & Greet August 6th

 

http://www.orlrealtor.com/events/event_details.asp?id=238887

 

From 5:30-7:30 this coming Monday evening, August 6th, our Orlando Regional Realtor Association (ORRA) will join with the Central Florida Veterans, Inc. in hosting a reception for candidates seeking election to the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida's 5th,7th,8th,9th and 10th congressional districts.

 

In all, 18 candidates are scheduled to attend- but I'd figure the most interesting parts of the evening will come from the District 7 folks.  Re-districting has forced two incumbent Republicans into battle against one another:  10-term District 7 incumbent Congressman John Mica (powerful Chairman of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee) and freshman Congresswoman Sandy Adams (currently FL-24).  That race has gotten ugly over the past week or two, and this event could very well be the last one they both attend before their August 14th primary.

 

Sandy Adams is supported by Sarah Palin and fellow freshman Congressman Allen West (R-FL 22), while John Mica is supported by Governor Mike Huckabee and a multitude of other Republicans...

 

Should be an interesting evening- and it's FREE

Redistricting sure wreaks havoc in some areas. Sarah Palin is a kingmaker, and with Alan West's support, Congressman Mica has a fight on his hands.

Hi, Yolanda:  Thank you for stopping by and for your comment.  I keep using the word "interesting" for lack of better words, and it's probably accurate.  Mica is the one who's received the lion's share of endorsements, and of all the hobnobs that have been hosted around here in the past few weeks, Mica has won each of them and won with some thumpin' margins that approached 70% in one of them.  One can easily get complacent over that, though- or more accurately, one's supporters can get complacent over that.  Lack of turnout is a scary thing.  Best example of what a fired-up underdog can do should a front-runner's folks stay home?  Look no further than former D.C. mayor- and current D.C. councilman Marion Barry.  Barry rented an untold number of Econoline vans to ferry the elderly to the polls, and hasn't been derailed since.  Mica is the Realtor's friend if there is one from these two- coming from a developer's background and all, and he did attend a "Lunch and Learn" function we had earlier this year...
