Gus v. Phyllis



State Rep. Gus Bilirakis, the Republican nominee to succeed his father in the 9th Congressional District, says President Bush has done a great job, for America, but that his Democratic opponent, Phyllis Busansky, is wrong to cast him as a rubber stamp. "I haven't been a rubber stamp for Jeb Bush, who I admire greatly, in Tallahassee, and I won't be a rubber stamp for the president," Bilirakis said in a taped Political Connections interview airing at 11 a.m.

"What I do support is change. It's time to have a balance in Congress," Busansky said. "I stand for change, as opposed to my opponent, who really stands for ... the status quo." More here.
