Carole Jean's Reality Tour

The RPOF chairwoman brought her two-day "Reality Tour" to Tampa to bash Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jim Davis.

From the press release: “This is a chance for Tampa Bay to take a step back and make an informed decision without having to wade through untruths that are piling up at Jim Davis’ and the Democrats’ feet. We are confident that people here recognize the fact that, just because you call a place your ‘hometown,’ it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are fit to lead the people who live there—or anywhere else for that matter.”

Here's part of the missive Democratic Chairwoman Karen Thurman offered after yesterday's "Reality Tour" stop in Gainesville: "...It's pretty simple, really. Just like it's pretty simple that Floridians are looking for change. They want real leaders who prioritize the people of Florida. They want leaders who act when serious problems like the insurance crisis arise. They don't see this leadership in either Crist or Gallagher. On the other hand, Democrats Jim Davis and Rod Smith are focused on delivering for Floridians - not for insurance companies - and the people are responding to their positive message."
