 Kurt Kelly Wins Big at Orange County Young Republican Straw Poll and Hob Nob

Wins Fourth Consecutive Republican Straw Poll in Congressional District 8


Orlando- Conservative small businessman Kurt Kelly won with a commanding lead over his opponents at the Orange County Young Republicans (OCYR) Hob Nob and Straw Poll event last night. With seven candidates in the race for Congressional District 8, Kelly won more than one-third of the votes casted.  The numbers are as follows:

Kurt Kelly -101
Todd Long – 70
Dan Webster- 56
Dan Fanelli – 22
Bruce O’Donoghue- 18
Pat Sullivan – 6
Ross Bieling- 5

The OCYR Hob Nob was the fourth consecutive straw poll in Congressional District 8 won by Kurt Kelly: OCYR, Northwest Orange Republican Women Federated, Marion Republican Business Council, and OCYR Hob Nob. Kelly’s first straw poll victory came last April at a OCYR meeting with a very narrow win. “The overwhelming victory at the OCYR Hob Nob reflects the surge of excitement that has emerged in our campaign,’ said Kelly. “Our army of hardworking volunteers and supporters knock on hundreds of doors every week to spread our message – enough with the career politicians and the hand-picked political insiders. Now is the time for new faces who will stop Washington’s reckless spending spree. It’s also important that we nominate the right type of Republican to take on Alan Grayson..”

Kelly’s message will now be seen on YouTube. Kelly for Congress campaign will be rolling out a series of YouTube videos that will go viral through the help supporters. In Kelly’s first video, Kurt responds to Grayson’s most famous comment “Republicans want you to die quickly.” Link to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OW-WFgxH_8 to view the video.
