Dena Minning Runs for Boyfriend Alan Grayson's Congressional Seat

Dr. Dena Minning is running for the congressional seat currently held by U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., with whom she has been romantically linked. Minning had been rumored to launch a congressional bid for weeks now, even as liberal activist Susannah Randolph, a former Grayson staffer, entered the race. Grayson is running for the Democratic nomination to replace U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., in 2016.

I Beg to Differ
Just when you thought nobody could make Chris Christie look tea party, who comes strolling into the room but Ohio Gov.
The Trump bump tells us something about the state of American politics. Progressives are panting to interpret his surge as evidence of Republicans' black hearts. Some Donald Trump supporters have suggested that his success, such as it is/was (this is being written after the McCain flap and before polls have gauged its impact), is an indictment of the limp "Republican establishment." It's neither. 
There is no way to know what is going on in someone else's mind. But sometimes their behavior tells you more than their words.
The Florida Keys. Even if you live in this magical paradise, when you hear those words it is hard not to think about margaritas, shocking sunsets and Jimmy Buffett crooning on a bar stool.
Here's a good example why I wish lawmakers would pause for a minute and think before they gouge out another exemption from Florida's Sunshine Law.
The outrage over another multiple murder of American military personnel on American soil by another Islamic extremist has been exacerbated by the fact that these military people had been ordered to be unarmed -- and therefore sitting ducks.
This week marks the fifth anniversary of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act‭ (‬Dodd-Frank‭)‬.‭ ‬This‭ ‬2,300-page law has imposed more than‭ ‬400‭ ‬new government mandate
