Statement on the Passing of Our First Republican Governor, Claude Kirk

Statement on the Passing of Our First Republican Governor, Claude Kirk

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Claude Kirk, Florida’s first Republican Governor since Reconstruction. It was an honor and a pleasure to get to know Governor Kirk. He was funny, feisty, opinionated, and always in charge. He graced us with his presence at Lincoln Day Dinners and other Party functions. It is truly a great loss.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the Kirk family. Please know that having the Governor here in Palm Beach County was a special gift.

RCCPBC Welcomes Senate Candidate Mike McCalister

McAlister Fires Up GOP Central Club


Sept. 1, 2011, Atlantis – “What impressed me was his breadth of vision,” proclaimed one veteran GOP political observer. “Given his business, military, health care, and teaching experiences, he really knows how to examine issues on their global implications.”

     Speaking before the monthly PBC Central Republican Club meeting, Senatorial candidate Col. Mike McCalister regaled the audience with a thoughtful yet hard hitting analysis of America’s challenges and the prescriptions necessary to return this nation to greatness.

     Citing the “value chain” from Business School vocabulary, he suggested incentivizing American companies to hire other American companies, rather than outsource for supplies overseas. Likewise, he called for abolishing the Federal Dept. of Education – which has no constitutional mandate – and dividing its funding among the states. “Florida ranks 48th in the ACT Standardized Test Scores and we need to completely revamp the system here. Otherwise, we will never outpace China, Japan, and Korea.”

     McCalister also noted that Asia constitutes 57% of the world’s population and Europe 12%. “This one land mass is the market to capture. For we must not only rein in our uncontrolled federal spending, but we must also increase our national income. And this requires eliminating unfair trade practices, protecting proprietary technology, stopping phony currency devaluations, and preventing cyber espionage amongst other things.”

      The Plant City conservative was the first of the four Republican Senate hopefuls who will appear before this audience in the coming months. The October 6th guest speaker will hail from the Pacific Legal Fund, an organization which litigates for property rights, limited government, and free enterprise, to be followed in Nov. by Craig Miller.
