In the final weeks of the presidential campaign, Florida's 29 electoral votes are coveted by both sides. That's why Governor Rick Scott and former Governor Charlie Crist are both busy on the campaign trail in Florida, even though neither one of them will be on the ballot next month.
U.S. Rep. Allen West, who is famous for his confrontational Tea Party politics, has been dominating this year in terms of fundraising.
He is not only out raising his opponent, Patrick Murphy, by leaps and bounds-- but he is raising more money than anyone else running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The Washington Post recently profiled Romney's biggest company donor, which is a Philadelphia-based orthopedic clinic. They also included some of the big money raisers in the country right now. At the top of that list happens to West.
The Boy Scouts' "perversion files" have been released and the names of at least 160 Floridians are among the 1,000 former Boy Scout leaders and volunteers accused of sexually abusing Boy Scouts between 1965 and 1985.
Lawyers involved in the case say the Boy Scouts of America kept careful records of the suspects and allegations but never reported them to authorities. Many were flagged as "ineligible to volunteer."
When Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan rally in Daytona Beach Friday night -- and somebody should tell them this right away -- they'll be worshipping at a temple of deficit spending, Keynesian economics and executive power unconstrained.
Boca Raton's Marc Leder, who is best known for hosting a dinner earlier this year in which presidential candidate Mitt Romney said 47 percent of people will vote for Obama because they are "dependent upon government," is going to hold yet another event this Friday at a country club in Boca Raton.
This fundraiser, however, will feature Romney's Vice Presidential Candidate Paul Ryan.
Fact checkers were up all night after Wednesday's Senate debate between Democratic incumbent Bill Nelson and his Republican challenger, U. S. Connie Mack. Facts and truth were relative things, many agreed, during the one and only chance Florida voters will have to see the candidates debate.
Mack is enjoying a bounceback after trailing in the polls for several weeks and the debate at Nova Southeastern University was animated with a few excursions into testy.
Topics included Cuba, foreign policy, health care and the candidates' respective records.
Margie Menzel reports on the case from Tallahassee.
State Rep. Barbara Watson will keep her 13-vote Democratic primary win over fellow Rep. John Patrick Julien. A Tallahassee judge ruled Wednesday that, despite some suspicious signatures on several absentee ballots cast for Watson, there wasn't enough evidence to overturn the result.
As Julien considers his options, Watson is preparing for the general election which she is likely to win. Heavily Democratic District 107 produced only a write-in candidate to oppose her.
