Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

When you're already fighting tradition in your Congressional re-election race, OH-16, there's never enough time. Boccieri vs. Renacci


Politics: Bowled Over by a Wave Election by Ben Werschkul of the New York Times

First-term U.S. Rep. John Boccieri (OH-16), representing rural and small-town Ohio across the Ohio River from Pennsylvania, loses his seat in Tuesday's GOP tsunami to businessman and former Wadsworth mayor Jim Renacci, despite enthusiastic visits by Bill Clinton.

An example of the humorous comparative ads run against him.

So was it his record of voting for nearly every aspect of the
Obama economic agenda, or was he always more liberal than his district was, and simply an anomaly swept-in because due to Obama's popularity in 2008, and now, two years later, sent packing because he was always a bad fit?


Well, two years ago,
Boccieri became the first Democrat to represent that House seat in almost 60 years, so he was always fighting tradition. On Tuesday, tradition came roaring back in the Buckeye State.
