Bay County Republican Roundtable Report, November 2010

Congressman-elect Southerland to address Nov. 9 meeting
     Steve Southerland, elected on November 2 to the U.S. House of Representatives, will be the featured speaker at the November 9 meeting of the Roundtable.  Southerland scored a historic victory over entrenched Democrat "Blue Dog" Allen Boyd, whose support of the Obama-Pelosi-Reid liberal agenda paved the way for a true conservative to reclaim a congressional seat for the people of Florida's District 2.
     Southerland announced his candidacy for Congress at a Roundtable meeting last fall.  We welcome him back not just to complete the circle but to share his hopes for America and his plans for helping the Republican congressional leadership stop the stampede to socialism.

Many thanks to Republican volunteers!!!
     You did it!  You helped the Republican Party reclaim the U.S. House of Representatives, narrow the gap in the U.S. Senate, and make huge gains in governors' seats and state legislatures across the country.  You ROCK!
     A special thank-you goes to Bay County Republican Party Headquarters Manager Glen Leirer, who kept HQ staffed and hope alive during the Primary and General Election campaigns this year.  Once again, Glen is talking about retiring.  (See you at the planning meeting to unseat Florida Senator Bill Nelson, Glen.)
