  • Democrat Debate

    Tonight’s Democratic debate will offer great news for illegal immigrants and socialists. It must be embarrassing for Democrats who do nothing to help drive a booming economy in such a special place like Detroit. Republicans have created more than 100,000 new jobs in Michigan, including 27,000 manufacturing jobs. In the great Motor City tonight we will only hear a stage full of motormouths ramble on about how much money they want to give away and not one detail about how to Keep America Great!

    Statement by RPOF Chairman Joe Gruters
    Re: “All Voters Vote”

    “We respectfully disagree with the Court’s majority opinion issued today. The “All Voters Vote” amendment would eliminate party primaries as Florida voters have understood them for over a century and import California’s disastrous and confusing “jungle primary”—creating a scenario with potentially dozens of candidates on the ballot for statewide races.

    Governor Ron DeSantis Takes Measured, Informed and Effective Steps

    Tallahassee, FL – “While Governor Ron DeSantis is resolutely leading the state through the coronavirus outbreak with measured, informed, effective actions to protect the health and rights of Floridians, the state’s second-largest newspaper is engaging in a wildly irresponsible fear-mongering campaign that looks just like the worst of partisan hackery. This newspaper’s editorial page has turned into one long, tiresome fanatical attack on Gov. DeSantis, stoking fear among those unfortunate enough to be reading it.
