Attention Democrats Everywhere !!!

The rumor is that Democrat Faye Armitage will soon announce her new bid for the 7th Congressional seat in Florida against obstructionist troglodite John Mica, long since irrelevant and needing gone. 

In the last election cycle, Faye made great inroads into this previously republican stronghold in northern Florida.  Endorsed by progressive and even many conservative groups alike, Faye looks like our best hope to unseat the do nothing Mica, having come closer than any recent Democratic candidate to doing so.  Florida District 7's demographics have radically moved to the center in the last decade, paving the way for a Democrat like Faye Armitage to take this crucial Congressional seat.

Faye Armitage is a real progressive candidate.  We in the Florida netroots community like her savvy.  We know she will be a huge upgrade over Mica in Washington, simply because she is so right on the issues that concern Florida and the nation:

*Faye is a longtime strong opponent of the disatrous war in Iraq and endorses our troops coming home as quickly and safely as possible.

*Faye favors national healthcare, because she believes it is a right and not a privilege.

*Faye favors using taxpayer dollars to benefit the working and middle classes, not just the wealthy.

*Faye recognizes the dangers of global warming and wants us to actively pursue the scientific causes of the problem and find real solution to the danger.

*Faye wants us to develop alternative fuel sources, weening ourselves off foreign oil, especially including no drilling for oil off of Florida's environmentally sensitive coast.

*Faye is a strong longtime advocate for stem cell research policy not controlled by right wing extemists, but science.

*Faye is in favor of the U.S. truly paying the debt it owes our veterans, meaning better healthcare and other deserved benefits.

Faye Armitage doesn't just bring casual opinions on these issues.  She is an economist and has worked in the health care industry to bring about real, helpful change for real people.  We need Faye Armitage in Washington with her compassion, actual experience and knowledge on these imperative subjects confronting our democracy, right now!

Please help the voters of Florida's Congressional District 7 and the country replace the blowhard, do nothing, republican rubber-stamp John Mica with progressive Democratic candidate Faye Armitage.

She is the REAL candidate to represent the people of Florida's District 7!
