Over the past month, the battle for Florida’s Eight Congressional District has really heated up.  This is due not only to the strong campaign being waged by Republican Dan Webster, but also the apparent “scorched earth” policy that Alan Grayson is following as he desperately tries to win re-election.

As new polling shows Webster leading an incumbent who lacks any sense of shame and civility, Grayson has begun to lash out and take a path lower than any imagined.  Aside from allegations that Grayson has been laundering money to a third party candidate in an attempt siphon conservative votes, he has also been airing blatantly false ads against his opponent.  His now infamous “Taliban Dan” ad has been roundly denounced – which includes a strong rebuttal from the non-partisan FactCheck.org – and unfortunately shows how low Grayson will go now that he’s in danger of losing his seat in Congress.

One thing is clear – Alan Grayson is a national embarrassment, and voters have the chance to show Democrats that they deserve more on Election Day.  

I would like to make a special request of our readers in discussing the current race in Florida’s 8th Congressional District.  Please forward this article to any of your friends and family because Alan Grayson must lose this November for the good of our nation.

For the past year-and-a-half, the good folks of Florida’s 8th Congressional District have been politically terrorized by Democrat Alan Grayson. Despite representing a swing district, Grayson has garnered a reputation as one of the most radically left-wing and behaviorally insane members of Congress. In late August, Republicans nominated top-tier GOP candidate Dan Webster, a solid conservative, true gentleman and committed public servant in an effort to send Grayson back to the planet from which he came.
