Conservative Pat Mooney Jumps in GOP Primary to Replace Ron DeSantis

Conservative leader Pat Mooney is running for Congress, joining a crowded Republican primary in Northeast Florida. 

Mooney announced on Wednesday that he will seek the Republican nomination to replace U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., who is running for the U.S. Senate. A graduate of the conservative Leadership Institute, Mooney has worked for Response America, a marketing firm with ties to several Republicans including former U.S. Rep. Allen West, R-Fla.

As he launched his campaign, Mooney vowed to secure the border and end regulations imposed by the Obama White House.  

"As a father of seven, I am deeply troubled by the path our country is on," Mooney said. "President Obama is destroying our great country. I want to make sure my children inherit a country that is safe, strong, and filled with economic opportunities.”

Mooney focused on his biography as he started his campaign. 

"I grew up listening to my mother's stories about being imprisoned by Fidel Castro at age 20, and never forgot the lesson that freedom is our gift to defend every single day,” Mooney said. “As a life-long conservative who has worked along side Sen. Marco Rubio and Lt. Col. Allen West, Florida voters can rest assured knowing I will not back down. I will fight for our conservative values in Congress." 

Mooney joins a crowded Republican primary field. Other Republican candidates include attorney Malcolm Anthony, state Rep. Fred Costello, R-Ormond Beach, businessman G.G. Galloway, Republican activist and Navy veteran Brandon Patty and state Rep. David Santiago, R-Deltona. On the Democratic side, businessman Bill McCullough, attorney George Pappas and state Rep. Dwayne Taylor, D-Daytona Beach. Richard Paul Dembinsky is running with no party affiliation. Former U.S. Rep. Sandy Adams, R-Fla., had been running for the Republican nomination but she ended her campaign due to health reasons. 

After the latest round of congressional redistricting, the seat contains all of Flagler and Volusia counties and parts of Lake and St. Johns counties. The northern part of St. Johns County, which had been part of DeSantis’ based when he first ran for Congress in 2012, has been removed from the district. Republicans are favored to keep the seat in November.

This family (see Alex Mooney in West Virgina - Maryland kicked him out and he landed in West Virginia) is hyper-interested in homosexuality and transexuality. Not sure why a family is so interested in this topic and why it is necessary to have this focus in North East Florida. This area can do better than this.

Patrick Mooney is a shining star in the Republican Field. He is a business man as well as a great father! Patrick is a hard-charging, conservative Republican who has spent his life working with conservatives against the Washington D.C. establishment. I will vote for anyone who has our children in mind! Thank you for your courage in taking on this very crowded field of candidates. -Nikki

I wish the military would take over and wipe out all politicians then destroy themselves. All leadership is evil including religion.

Should YOUR favorite Republican or Democrat NOT win the party nomination for Congressional District 6, I would greatly appreciate YOU taking a minute to call me before YOU waste YOUR vote on another "incumbent"; please vote for someone that will go to Washington to serve ALL the residents of District 6. Thank YOU. onballot@gmail.com (comments please). onballot.com whocareshalloffame.com 386 788 3885, home, 386 314 3646 cell anytime. It is impossible to say the my running as NPA will NOT impact the election. Help me so I can help consumers.

Yet as a repub that still backs the economic, tax, regulation, energy and war policies that 2000-2008 proved fiscally and morally bankrupt, he has a very different fiscal conservative leaning than I and most do. Mostly he is a corporatist, not a conservative and religious bigot we really don't need anymore. And he doesn't care about his kids as the policies he spouts is what has left them $19T in debt instead of following Clinton economics which the national debt would be paid off by now. That sir is fiscal conservative and real Christian that cares for all people.

GO TRUMP!

Im pretty sure his brother is the carpetbagger Congressman from W. Va. If so his brother is the Cruz State Chairman. Put out a bill to allow illegals instate college tuition's.

In the constitution there are to be nine members in the Supreme Court. If we do not elect a new one, according to the constitution, there would be a tie vote. With the announcement of President Obama's next Supreme Court justice nominee looming, attention has focused on how the newest addition will affect the balance of the court's voting. The ninth justice may be the swing vote in future court cases. In order to prevent President Obama, who should be impeached, (as what took place with President Andrew Johnson) from naming any new Supreme Court justices, the Congress has a right not to approve. Past history of our current Congress has been to approve all of the federal judges Obama has nominated. When there is a vacancy on the Supreme Court, the president nominates someone who then has to be approved by a majority vote in the Senate. "If the Court divides 4-4, the lower court opinion is affirmed without creating any Supreme Court precedent," said Jeffrey Fisher, a professor of law at Stanford University. Since these lower courts are already Obama's nominees, it would be best to nominate a ninth judge with critical congressional review. Ironically, there are no requirements given in the Constitution for becoming a Supreme Court justice. No age, experience, or citizenship rules exist. In fact, a Supreme Court justice does not need to even have a law degree. However, since the Senate confirms justices, experience and background have become important factors in the confirmations.

And just why should Obama be impeached. Because he's a black man? What laws has he broken? What has he done that other presidents have not? Be specific please.

And, as a Trump supporter, he'll receive lots of assistance from the new President Trump!
