Libertarian Candidate Lucas Overby, who is running for Congress in Florida’s 13th Congressional District (Pinellas County), is poised to win that race. Floridians in District 13 will be voting in a special election to replace the late Republican Congressman Bill Young, who passed away in 2013.
Democrat Alex Sink and Republican David Jolly are running scared, refusing to participate in any more debates or forums. Instead they are relying on mud-slinging TV ads and voter fear to try and win an election that seems all but hopeless for the two sub-par candidates. A list of debates and forums where one or both the Democratic and Republican candidates cancelled or backed out of, can be found here.
Jolly (R) admitted in a forum that “Lucas Overby is smarter than me.” You can read more about that here.
In a response to a question about immigration, Sink (D) had the following to say:
Lucas Overby is looking mighty good right now as he and his supporters canvass the district talking to voters and engaging them.
But Lucas needs your help. Please consider donating whatever you can to help in the final push for this special election being held on March 11th.
If Lucas wins, we all win. And that’s something grand for Florida – and America!
Lucas Overby will be appearing on The Old Dominion Libertarian Radio Network’s Monday March 3rd show at 7pm ET, for an in-depth interview about his historic race to victory on March 11th. You can listen to the show here.
