From The Epoch Times

Biden Blames Hurricane Ian on Climate Change

Talk about adding insult to injury!  On Wednesday, Joe Biden toured the devastation on Ft. Myers Beach caused by Hurricane Ian.  Despite the show of unity with Gov. DeSantis, Biden began his remarks by suggesting that climate change was responsible for the recent storm.  Yet a recent study by NOAA and other weather experts suggests that such claims are entirely without merit.  To read the full article, simply click on the image below.



This is How a Real Leader Tackles A Natural Disaster

Our Republican State Committeeman and friend, Dave Matthews, shared the following YouTube video of a recent interview between Jesse Waters of Fox News and Gov. Ron DeSantis.  While Biden blames climate change, Gov. DeSantis is focused on getting things done for the people of Florida.  To see the entire interview, simply click on the image below.



Register to Vote Before It's Too Late


Florida Statute 97.055 states that newly registered voters are eligible to vote in an upcoming election as long as the registration has been submitted 29 days in advance of that election.  This deadline is this coming Tuesday, October 11.  So if you have not yet registered to vote and you want to vote in the midterm election on November 8,  you must register prior to October 11.  We suggest that you visit the Manatee County Supervisor of Elections website to determine the ways in which you can register.  To do so, kindly click on the button below.


Voting in the Wake of Hurricane Ian


Like it or not, an increasing number of Floridians are taking advantage of Vote By Mail (VBM) ballots.  These have already been mailed to the homes of Manatee County residents last week.  But what happens to our neighbors in Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties who had their homes destroyed by Hurricane Ian?  Many areas in SW Florida are still without power and polling places in the path of the storm were certainly affected.  What's more, these are traditionally counties with a large number of Republicans and the absence of their votes could have a serious impact on the midterm elections.  So we went to the Division of Elections website (to go there, click this link) and discovered that as of today no special provisions have yet been made.  In fact, Collier County is not even mentioned while Sarasota County is on the list. The only Emergency Order we were able to find is that Campaign Finance Deadlines in some counties have been extended.  We will continue to monitor the situation and hope that Secretary of State Byrd acts quickly to insure that SW Florida voters can indeed securely cast their votes.

Support Our Republican Candidates



New Florida Victory Campaign Launched


Perhaps one of the most important midterm election of our lifetimes is less than a month away.  And while evidence of a  "Red Wave" can be seen everyday, we have learned from past elections that nothing can be taken for granted.  So the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) has just launched a new campaign to insure that all Republican candidates prevail on November 8.

This campaign focuses on two activities:

  • Neighborhood Canvassing in your Precinct (Door-to-door talking with your neighbors) 
  • Phone Banking (Reaching out by phone to encourage Republicans to vote)


The RPOF will be using the Campaign Sidekick application to facilitate and manage these activities. 


To participate, all you need to do is to:

  • Register (sign up) - simply click on this link
  • Attend training - scheduled and conducted locally by the RPOF staff


The RPOF will provide you with further details once you are registered.

The RPOF is partnering with a number of organizations throughout Manatee County in this important effort.  We are asking all subscribers to sign up today and be part of the victory!
