Friday Morning Political Headlines: Rivals take final shots at each other, Superman Flies Away

In Uncategorized on August 10, 2012 at 1:51 pm

Really fast. We got the short end on that Dwight Howard deal. We let Superman walk for no superstars and draft picks in a lackluster crop of players leaving college. It’s not a complete tragedy but we should have insisted on more.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.

The nationally watched Republican Congressional primary got the New York Times treatment this morning. The national website highlighted the intense contest between longtime incumbent and establishment favorite John Mica and Tea Party Fueled Freshman Sandy Adams. We’ve also got some great local coverage below including an “real” moment when the two meet in front of the media.

We’ve also got some parting shots in the Orange Osceola State Attorney contest between Lawson Lamar and Jeff Ashton.

Both of these contests will reach their conclusion on Tuesday during a primary night showdown.

All of this and Gary Siplin lead your Friday Morning Political Headlines. Have a great weekend.
