US Congressional Candidate Forum


There will be a candidates’ forum Jan 2 for the GOP Primary election that will be held Jan 14, 2014 to replace late Congressman Bill Young.  The three candidates are:

1) Mark Bircher: a retired Marine Corps Reserve Brigadier General, F/A-18 pilot, and Iraq War Veteran who was recently endorsed by Lt Col. Allen West and other conservatives.

2) David Jolly: a lobbyist who was formerly general counsel to Rep. Bill Young and has the endorsement of Bill Young's widow.

3) Kathleen Peters: a politician who is a state rep and has the endorsement of the liberal Tampa Bay Times and State Senator Jack Latvala.

An informative candidate questionnaire put out by the Republican Liberty Caucus of Tampa Bay can be found HERE.

We need more liberty-loving representatives in Congress and this is an excellent opportunity to get one elected to represent District 13 in the Tampa Bay region.


We encourage our members to get involved by researching these candidates with the information provided above, and by attending the candidate forum in Pinellas Park.  Choose the candidate you believe will best work to restore our government to it's founding principles and then introduce yourself to them at the forum.  Then donate and volunteer for the next two weeks to help get them elected!  This race presents a rare opportunity for us to make a difference in our federal representation!  Please get involved!


The winner of this primary will face Democrat Alex Sink and Libertarian Lucas Overby in a March 11, 2014 General Election.


The Jan 2 Candidate forum is open to the public and will be at the Pinellas Park City Auditorium located at[masked]th Street North. PCYR President Berny Jacques will serve as the forum moderator. Jacques will be joined by SaintPetersBlog Editor Peter Schorsch and Sunbeam Times Editor Dr. David McKalip, M.D. as guest panelists.  There will be no charge for admission and PCYR will provide free refreshments for all those in attendance. Doors open at 5:30pm, forum begins at 6:00pm.  RSVP for the Jan 2 Candidate forum at https://www.facebook.com/events/525887330843195.
