Congressman Robert Wexler, a far-left liberal Democrat from Florida's nineteenth congressional district is resigning to join a think tank advocating peace in the Middle East, Wexler is known for being a "fire breathing liberal" as well as calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush in June of 2008, while he defended President Clinton back in the 1990's against articles of impeachment which we're based on solid accusations.
After Congressman Wexler officially resigns from the House of Representatives, Governor Charlie Crist will call for a special election to be held to fill the vacancy, in a congressional district which is D+15, and Wexler won with 66% of the vote during the 2008 elections. However, the district is not as Democrat as it was eight years ago, as the district supported Gore over Bush 71-27%, and Obama over McCain 65-34%, while it is not an amazing shift, it does signal Republicans are performing better in the district.
Congressional special elections can be very interesting, especially in a district that has somewhat trended more Republican over the years, has a large Jewish population, and might be winnable for the Republican party if voter turnout is high amongst the Conservative base in the district.
Republican Edward Lynch who challenged Wexler in 2008, is in my opinion the frontrunner to be the Republican nominee for the special election whenever it takes place, if Lynch can focus on the horrible stances the Obama administration has made on Israel, appeal to Hispanics on the situation in Honduras, and rally the Republican base for a high voter turnout, this could become interesting.
Anyway you split it, it will be one less Democrat vote for a few weeks when Wexler resigns. Which is good for everyone.
Gear up fellow Conservatives & Republicans, this is a special congressional election we must be involved in.
