Well that is good. While I was watching the MSNBC when I was working out, they had the results on when Sink was in the lead.. Later on they didn't show the results..  I wonder why.

What's the skinny on this Jolly guy?

At least he's not a democrat; that should be the benchmark.

I'm sure the Democrats are quickly printing up more ballots as we speak and will soon discover a box with 3,127 votes, all for Sink.

Well..... if he is a "republican" like Juan McLame, Linda Graham, or Mitch McConnell, then what's the point? The RATs won.

No.  Republicans like that may come really close to being like democrats, but they're not, and that difference, no matter how slim, makes all the difference in the world.  If for no other reason, if the Republicans manage to be a majority in the Senate or the House only by including people like that, then the Republican party and its Congressional leadership get to determine who sits on what committees.  That is an awesome power in and of itself.

He worked for Young (general counsel) for a number of years, then went into lobbying (which was one of the main attack points on him throughout).

Seems to be more of an establishment type, but often talked a good "small government, conservative" line during the campaign. 

IMO, the race was Sink's to lose (much better name recognition, was Florida CFO, lost governor's race to Scott, had *huge* DCCC support infrastructure and $$$), but she was simply not a good retail campaigner and did not do well in debates.  Many characterized Jolly as a B-/+ candidate (first time candidate) running a C- campaign (probably close to the truth).  So take from that, the Sink (DCCC) message ('fix' 0bamacare, 'protect' Social Security, support 'fixing' Climate Change, etc.) sort of fell flat on its face, at least in #CD13.

Jolly is against Obamacare and says he has goals of lowering taxes and cutting spending. He believes Israel is one of the premier allies of the United States and has a goal of not cutting the United States commitment to the military and to its allies. He is pro-life, says that he "supports the constitutional right to keep and bear arms," and opposes amnesty for illegal immigrants. He supports the Balanced Budget Amendment,[6]\ and would have voted to raise the debt limit in early 2014.[7]

Some sites refer to Jolly as a Tea Party candidate. Rand Paul went to Fl. on his behalf. Sink outspent Jolly by more than 3 to 1, which makes the victory extra sweet.
