DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on Washington Lobbyist David Jolly’s Primary Win in FL-13
DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement after it was announced that Washington lobbyist David Jolly won the Republican nomination in Florida’s 13th Congressional district.
“While successful businesswoman Alex Sink has spent her career working across the aisle to get things done, Washington lobbyist David Jolly helped stack the deck for special interests and ignore Pinellas families. Whether it was lobbying for offshore drilling or supporting an end to the Medicare guarantee that would raise costs on seniors, David Jolly’s agenda would hurt Pinellas families.
“There’s no doubt that over the next eight weeks, national Republicans and shadowy groups funded by the Koch Brothers will pour millions of dollars into this race to spread the same debunked lies that Rick Scott used against Alex in 2010, but the independent-minded voters in Pinellas will see through their politics-as-usual.”
