Greg Steube is running unopposed in the Primary - He is absolutely a constitutional conservative candidate.

Hey there, I'm Rita Baldwin, a Constitutional Conservative running for SJC school board District 3.

Hi Rita, I'm not in District 3 but I do suggest Doug Russo to all my friends there. We need a radical change on that school board and I do hope all 3 incumbents are evicted from their seats!!! Good luck in your campaign

Well said, Lori!

I'm not in District 3, neither.

However, I have to say, We need a MAN, a fearless MAN like our Mr. Russo! As I said, we ladies are the weak creatures God made 😆Women are too emotional. The enemy is too strong there. We need a lion like Mr. Doug Russo fighting and protecting the other two ladies who are the candidates in other two districts. We have 3 evil men for school board in St. Johns County public schools including the superintendent Forson, who has at least two first legal names that seem very mysterious.

Actually your election days can include almost weeks before the August 23rd date. In Charlotte County you can vote from August 8th, this Monday thru August 21 all day long. You can vote at the Mid County library in Port Charlotte, the Supervisor of elections in Punta Gorda, and on San Casa in Englewood for early voting. You go to your assigned precinct location on the 23rd. Thanks to a courageous young person who got in touch with Epoch Times, you don't have to wear a mask, get a vaccine, have your temperature taken or give your ballot to someone outside that promises to take it inside and cast the vote.

Your picks for Lee County (Ford O'Connell, Liza King, Denise Nystrom, and Christy DeVigili) are spot on! They are strong constitutional conservatives.

We really have a problem in this county because we actually have one main "candidate" who calls himself a campaign manager and then he runs his Avatars for different races. Currently he has at least 10 people who hold office or are running for office. These candidates have big PAC money that has some Democrat donors or untraceable connections.

Our governor is being given really bad advice about Lee County and has chose all the wrong people to endorse and it is going to reflect poorly on him if they win and prove to be RINOs or lose to the above named real constitutional candidates. The same goes for his selection of Simpson over Shaw for Ag Commissioner, though I have a sneaking suspicion that he was manipulated into giving that endorsement in exchange for the redistricting approval.

We have two candidates that are looking at serious ethics complaints (Karnes who was appointed Clerk of the Court about a year ago and recent appointee Greenwell for County Commissioner.) Though no specific endorsement has been given, these two are implying that the appointment is tantamount to an endorsement. Check out the latest scuttlebutt about Greenwell on Wink news. BTW they are two of the candidates who are Avatars of the above referenced campaign manager.

Judges always try to skirt answering questions because of "Judicial Canons" prohibiting them from commenting on any case that might come before them. They hate me because I ask the following 4 questions that they can't avoid on that basis:

1. Name the 5 rights listed in the First Amendment (It is frightening how few can answer this)

2. Your oath requires you to uphold the Constitution. What role does stare decisis play? (If they say the are bound by SCOTUS precedence I ask them how they reconcile cases like Plessy v. Ferguson and Brown v. Board of Education and more recently Roe v. Wade and Dodd and ask if relying precedence doesn't undermine due process. God help them if they call them SCOTUS "rulings," as I then remind them that we don't have rulers. We only have representative and SCOTUS only render opinions.}

3. I also ask them what their thoughts are on term limits for SCOTUS since they have life appointments. If they try to answer and don't realize it is a trick question (they don't have life appointments they are appointed as long as they are on good behavior which means not legislating from the bench) then I slam them on that.

4. The final question I ask is if the Constitution in a living document. If they don't get that it is a compact and an enduring document that can only be changed after following the amendment process set out in Article 5 then they are off my list.

Unfortunately, it is very very rare any of them can successfully answer all four questions and I am left picking the best of the bad lot for judges. I also look at any opinions they have written or in which they have taken part, including any dissenting opinions.

For all candidates I search their endorsements, PAC contributors, campaign managers, and individual contributors.

I truly appreciate what you all do as this work is tedious and time consuming. It is nice to know that my picks match most of yours. There are a few you have chosen that are on my "better than the other people so I'll end up voting for them" list but not strong enough for me to campaign for or financially back.

What a wonderful job helping get "real" patriot, conservative candidate names out to "we the people". Thank you so much for all the hard work that went into this vital information.

Disappointed Charlotte County was not listed.

There are RINOs who hide behind so called Trump Clubs. Not calling out this one...but we have seen in at least Manatee a few RINOs who said they were members of the Trump Group but it wasn't a real one but they used the name....

Thank you so much for your comment. It proves once again you can't believe anything anymore unless you thoroughly vet it yourself! Fortunately I feel that our Trump club is a solid one. We do have a candidate that, I was told, put on his his mailing cards that he was backed by Trump! As far as we have determined he is not. Thanks again for your information.

I just looked at the Florida Division of Elections site. Most candidates in Charlotte are running unopposed. Check your ballot.

Hi Lisa, Thanks for your reply regarding Charlotte County. My ballot for the primary however shows only 5 categories and all are contested. I think, for me and friends, the county commissioner races are the ones in which it would be helpful to have input. Thanks again for your reply.

I am shocked that I was not named for District 23 because I am for Constitutional Carry Second Amendment Rights. Tod Cloud wants gun registration. Tod Cloud refused to answer the NRA questionaire.

Your listing for Saint Johns County is missing the ultra-conservative Rita Baldwin for School Board, District 3.

Expand full comment
author

As it states in the article, if candidates are missing it is because we either could not vet the candidate or we ran out of time.

Expand full comment

Thank you for putting this list together. Rita is endorsed by Moms for Liberty as the other two candidates for the school board you have listed, so she is definitely vetted. I suspect you will get a lot of feedback from others who are missing from your list, so hopefully you can update your listing as I believe a lot of people will be passing it around.

Martin Hyde???? The rude obnoxious man who threatened a cop with her career because she pulled him over and wanted to see his registration??? OMG!!! https://www.heraldtribune.com/story/news/politics/2022/02/23/what-to-know-about-sarasota-congressional-candidate-martin-hyde/6914039001/ I don't care if he apologized.

It’s easier for us to get Hyde out of office in 2 years than keep trying to get well-funded Buchanan out after these many years. Hyde is a stepping stone to that objective.

Just looked up Buchanan. Now I understand where you are coming from. Awful, horrible. RINO. How can he even call himself a Republican?! Sounds like you have a plan. Good luck. http://ratings.conservative.org/people/B001260

Also, I am casting my vote for Lombardo versus Gaetz using info from https://rumble.com/v1f07uh-florida-republican-primary-for-us-house-districts-1-2-and-3-august-23-2022.html. He is my district and we are seeing him more now than ever. Also look at https://defendourunion.org/candidates/mark-lombardo-fl-us-house-district-1

Great site to look at for Rubio: https://rumble.com/v1ewh79-florida-republican-primary-for-us-senate-august-23-2022.html Hopefully someone will rise up to primary him that I can believe in. It was Luis Miguel until he switched to state rep. But have to vote for Rubio over Democrat. Simply to have the R. https://defendourunion.org/candidates/marco-rubio-us-senate-rino-but-better-than-democrat

RINO Hunter 1776 walks through US House District Reps for 4, 5, 6 https://rumble.com/v1f4amn-florida-republican-primary-for-us-house-4-5-and-6-august-23-2022.html . Explains why Eric Aguilar is RINO and bad choice for District 4. Better is Jon Chuba,, https://www.votechuba.com/issues. Love Mara but Luna Lopez is a passionate RINO eating patriot--looks like she would be better for district 5, Florida, and our state. https://www.lunalopezforcongress.com/ . Charles Davis for District 6 is a winner!

The Gaetz, Lombardo is soooo difficult. After talking to many people--Lombardo came late to the game, rumors are that Lombardo has funding from the Anti-Trump, pro-molest young men Lincoln project., Despite the fact that he said he was self funding.... Also Gaetz is coming to Pensacola tomorrow with Jim Jordan. I really respect Jim Jordan. Soo, Gaetz instead of Lombardo...

In Sarasota you left off Bridget Ziegler of the ZEM Team for School Board (Ziegler,Enos,Marinelli)

and in Manatee County, you Should add Martin Hyde for US Congress Dist 16.

Also, Why not endorse District 18 Congressman Byron Donald's. He is a member of the Republican Liberty Caucus and while he is an incubent and it looks like you did not list incumbents in your endorseents, He and Greg Steube should be included as great constitutional conservatives.
