It is actually amazing to me that I even have to write this current blog as I would never in a million years believe that the incumbent would stoop so low to send out a postcard claiming I am a Socialist-Democrat.
Sad. Pathetic. Typical. Disgusting. Despicable. All characteristics of the District 53 incumbent.
Regardless, I am a Republican and a strong Trump supporter. There is not a socialist bone in my body much less an inkling in my mind.
My Ph.D. is in economics and, as such, I am an advocate of free markets, limited government, limited taxes, limited regulation, all concepts standard to a Chicago School economist.
Our gate at our small farm on Valkaria Road has boasted Trump flags, flags that I got my husband for Christmas last year, far before I even entered this election.
Every sign that belongs to Marcie Adkins all over Brevard boldly posts REPUBLICAN, always in caps, at the top of the sign. Can you say the same thing about any of the incumbent’s signs? No. You cannot.
In addition to my signs and our President’s, you will see several other signs from 4 more of our local strong REPUBLICANS that I support. If you go to my opponents house (that’s not even in his district) you will see his signs only.
I have attended several Trump flag waves in the past several months and will attend more. I also attended the Trump Center grand opening on Merritt Island. The incumbent never attended any of those events so you will never find any photos pictures or videos of him supporting Trump on his campaign. That is because he never attended any events.
Now, there is a small smattering of truth in the incumbent’s claims: I did register as a Republican when I first turned 18. However, sometime during my college years at UF I was “liberalized” and switched to Democrat for a few years. However, I switched back.
In 1996, twenty-four years ago, I left Tallahassee to move back home to Brevard, to marry my husband and to create our family. In 1999, I registered as a REPUBLICAN in Brevard County and I have been a proud REPUBLICAN ever since. (See Webelect print out. Webelect is a Republican software program that tracks Republicans, when they registered and how they vote. You can see my “batting average” is high, and can be relied on to vote 99 percent of the time in primaries and 99 percent of the time in general elections.)
In contrast, you can see that the incumbent only been registered as a Brevard County Republican since July 2007 or for 13 years. In addition, he is not nearly as reliable as a Republican voter, only voting in primaries 83% of the time and in general elections 96% of the time.
And if all of that is still not enough, here is an email from our Supervisor of Elections herself to my campaign manager just last week. She clearly states that I registered as a REPUBLICAN in 1999 and have been ever since.
Also dragged into this is my campaign manager, and his party affiliation. It is often claimed by my opponent and others that Robert Burns is a democrat. He is not. He is a proud United States Army honorably Retired registered Republican. Despite my opponent claiming he is neither. He is also 100% disabled from injuries sustained in combat.
As you can see, in this campaign, we provide evidence to support our claims and positions. Please apply the same standard to my opponent.
Finally here is an article today from Florida Daily showing almost every REPUBLICAN leader in Brevard County to include the Chair of the Brevard Republican Party denouncing my opponent.
I would very much appreciate you sharing this information with your friends. This is a grass roots campaign and we need each other to spread the truth and to combat the lies.
Thank you very much!
