SRLC interview: Brian Reilly

posted at 4:40 pm on April 9, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Tired of having Debbie Wasserman-Schultz telling you that there is no health-care mandate, or complaining that the big problem is that there are too many men on Capitol Hill? Meet the potential antidote: Brian Reilly. He’s running in FL-20 and hoping to unseat Wasserman-Schultz, who he says is too radical for her district. Reilly hasn’t run for public office before now, working instead in the private sector to build business and create jobs. He mentions how 9/11 helped inspire him to succeed in business after the loss of many friends in New York, and how it’s now inspiring him to seek public office.

Update: There’s at least one other Republican running in this district, businessman Robert Lowry.

Update II: Karen Harrington, a local businesswoman, is also running in the GOP primary.

Right now even a rancid tuna sandwhich would be better than Wassername-Schultz.

Good luck! That district is FULL of “Condo Commandos” who, notoriously, vote en block for anyone with a “D” behind their name.

It can be done, but it’s going to TAKE a LOT of shoe leather to even begin to make a dent.

Hope he makes it.

The citizen patriots are coming out of the woodwork to oppose the democrats. Bravo.

He’s a hell of lot easier on the eyes… that’s for sure!

C’mon Florida – Vote this toxic waste out of office in November, how could he possibly be any worse that what you’ve got???

I hope he gets some good publicity. There is not a snowball’s chance in hell he will beat her. She won’t even agree to debate him.

He seems like a great guy. Hope he moves to a less democratic district for 2012 and runs. Don’t waste your cash in this race, unless you just have money to burn.

She’s such an airhead, really. I happened to catch her on C-span once when the dems were wringing their hands over the price of gas when Bush was still in office. She brought a toy gas pump in to use as a prop as she was holding it up to show the president what one looked like. I could not believe that she was that ignorant about what goes in to making the gas prices rise.

Well, I guess now the shoe will be on the other foot as the gas prices are expected to rise back to $4 a gallon – wonder what their excuse will be now they don’t have Bush to blame – oh, wait, that hasn’t stopped them so far, has it?

He just said why that predictable district will vote for Wasserman Schultz: the last name(s). For God’s sake, why does humanity insist on destroying itself over common culture support?

Time to donate people!! You know this shething has stimulus money I’m sure will just happen to end up in her little re-election chest!!

He says we have to give health care to the sick, weak and poor and he can do it without costing the government any money. Ed, you just let that little fantasy go by without examination. And if he can do it we should know how proposes to create something out of nothing. That gave me too much of an Obama/MSM flashback.
