Little Bird Tells Me That Grassroots Republican Mike Yost Might Just Pull Upset On Liberal Democrat Congresswoman Corrine Brown!
If there ever was a congressional race that had all the underpinnings of the upset of the century, it's the outsider Mike Yost running against multi-term career politician Democrat Corrine Brown. It's a district that Republican Party of Florida purposely carved out that would cater to minorities.
Using the word 'gerrymandered' to describe District 3 is an understatement. It somehow runs from Jacksonville to Orlando with some parts so narrow that a cat swishing it's tail would cross opposing boundaries.
The big surprise is that far from being a giveaway to the loony left, never once having a Republican congressman represent it, now it's 'in play.' Even veritable analyst Dick Morris has taken notice, trumpeting Mr. Yost as one of his favorite upsets.
During a recent visit to Orlando on the "Take Back America" tour, Mr. Morris singled out Mike with strong praise for his race. He challenged the Republican Party of Florida and the tea party movement to get behind this "winnable race" and has marked it as one of his "races to watch."
Today this writer helped on a precinct walk that gave a startling glimpse of what might be. After knocking about a hundred doors the proof was there to see. Constituents of Ms. Brown were ready for change. I saw only one forlorn sign, leaning over (to the left of course), proclaiming 'Corrine Brown DELIVERS.'
After a morning's work, there were MANY signs in the yards of Mike Yost supporters!
Afterwords I sat down to talk with a professional Republican campaign field director familiar with the race. He/she must remain anonymous for obvious reasons.
"I've run the numbers on this district and Mike can win. Even though Dem's have a lead in registration, I've looked at national Gallop Polling predicting a low turnout among the Democrat base. I've overlaid that on the district and with an expected high Republican turnout, you have a very different outcome."
When asked why the Republican Party of Florida has not taken much of an interest in this race, the reply was "they're more interested in not making this a profile race. They think that supporting Yost might energize Democrat turnout." Even more astounding was the statement, "They are persona non grata when Mike wins. No one that didn't support us will be invited to the victory party, nor will they be invited up on stage for the victory speech."
Was this just typical bravado in an uphill race? The source replied, "Mike went from having very little money to campaign on, to now (after the Dick Morris pronouncement), having enough to hire a small professional staff. I came down here from (location deleted) and took a pay cut to help stage this upset."
Okay folks, this has got my attention, now how about you?
We grassroots/tea party movement types are always spoiling for a fight against the worst elements in Washington that are destroying our nation. Corrine Brown has taken for granted her district and now we have a chance to catch her napping.
What my source tells me is that all we need is a last minute surge of volunteers to pull the upset of the century! We need live bodies to run the phone banks. We need fearless patriots that aren't afraid of walking into Democrat territory to rouse Republican and Independent voters announcing victory is at hand.
Corrine Brown's slogan is "I deliver". Problem is that even after grabbing over $600 MILLION taxpayer dollars for her district, most of her constituents are still mired in poverty! Mike Yost on the other hand grew up in poverty himself in West Virginia. He learned that government doesn't teach people to stand on their own two feet, they subjugate them with phony programs that perpetuate their low economic outcomes.
Mike Yost learned one more thing in 'Almost Heaven' West Virginia. And that's 'how to beat Democrats.' As a teenager he got interested in a Republican that wanted to run for office. The candidate told him it was a long shot. Fortunately, Mike didn't understand demographics and polling data. But on election night the long shot candidate pulled out a squeaker and Yost got educated.
Here's YOUR challenge and chance to be a part of a race that will be written about in political history books. This will be the upset of the CENTURY!
Simply reply to firstname.lastname@example.org (my personal email) and I'll forward your contact info to Mike and the rest of the gang (including the professional campaign field director). We'll teach both the Democrat and Republican party's a lesson about popular uprisings!
Remember, if you live in Jacksonville, Orlando, Palatka, Orange Park, Gainesville, Greene Cove Spring, Interlachen, Deland, or anywhere near there, we need boots on the ground. If you live far away, we can give you lists to phone call and rally our base.
