FDP Chairman Rod Smith On Offense In Tampa

Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith


FDP Chairman Rod Smith on Andrea Mitchell [MSNBC] "Florida I've always considered a center state…it's a state that's right down the middle. The Republican primary has moved them, particularly I think with Romney moving as far to the right as he's moved to join the rest of the group, they've d moved so far to the right that it's really difficult for the so far to the right that it's going to be very difficult for them re-center themselves in a general election." 

Chairman Rod Smith on the Ed Show [MSNBC] "Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith joins Ed Schultz to fight back against Romney’s attacks on the President."

Today on the Trail [Talking Points Memo] "Democrats are loving the GOP debates: Democrats are enjoying the GOP primary debates because the candidates are attacking each other and hurting their own favorability in the process. At least, that’s what Florida Democratic Party Chair Rod Smith said in a statement: 'This isn’t a race to the White House, it’s a race to the right. Democrats should consider sponsoring debates because the more voters learn about Mitt Romney and the GOP, the less they like them. This field has made clear they want to continue with giveaways to millionaires and billionaires at the expense of Florida’s middle class families. Moreover, I agree with both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney; neither deserve to be President.'”

FL Democratic Party Chairman predicts tough time for Romney [NBC First-Read] "Specifically pointing out Romney’s opposition to the DREAM Act, a proposal that would provide a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children. Smith said Romney will find that  'Florida is very different on the issue of immigration than some of the states he’s been campaigning in' and indicated that reaction to his stance on the issue may not be well received. On President Obama’s chances in Florida during the general election, the state’s Democratic Party chairman was predictably more optimistic saying he’s never seen a more energized democratic base."

Gloves off early as Romney attacks Gingrich in Tampa GOP debate [Central Florida 13 News] "Florida Democratic Party Chairman Rod Smith issued the following statement in response to Monday night's GOP presidential debate.'This isn’t a race to the White House, it’s a race to the right. Democrats should consider sponsoring debates because the more voters learn about Mitt Romney and the GOP, the less they like them. This field has made clear they want to continue with giveaways to millionaires and billionaires at the expense of Florida’s middle class families. Moreover, I agree with both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney; neither deserve to be President.'"
