Florida GOP says it’s all about Pelosi, baby!


It worked for Mark Sanford in South Carolina.

Can it work in Florida?

The Republican Party of Florida on Tuesday announced a campaign to build its congressional strategy around keeping the House in Republican hands, and Nancy Pelosi from returning to the Speaker’s chair.

“If you could prevent Nancy Pelosi from winning back the Speaker’s Gavel, would you do it?” the fundraising letter asks.

In the letter announcing the Prevent Pelosi Project, RPOF Chairman Lenny Craig cites the razor-thin – and sometimes disputed – loss by Republican incumbent Allen West to Democratchallenger Patrick Murphy in Florida’s 18th District last year.

And he asks Florida Republicans to remember the first two years of the Obama presidency, when Pelosi in the House helped muscle through the federal takeover of the United States health system known as Obamacare.

In South Carolina, former Gov. Sanford turned what could have been a referendum on his “hiking” activities – commonly known as “cheating on your wife” – into a question for his conservative voters: Do you want to give Nancy Pelosi another Democratic supporter in the House?

Sanford made a point of debating a life-size cardboard cutout of Pelosi during his campaign in South Carolina’s First Congressional District. And got a 9-point win over Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch for his trouble.

Craig is hoping the same magic works in Florida.
