I know it seems trite, but the only person running for office for whom I put a donation on a credit card! I never do that!!!

Anyway, he's great, and a voice we NEED.

Can't wait to see him back on the floor putting Republicans to shame. That's what he does best.

How does the guy lose two years ago and rebound with an almost 2 to 1 win?

Don't get me wrong - I love the guy. But how fucking fickle are these Florida voters?

Did he run in a different district?

I was so disappointed when he lost in 2010. So glad he will be back in Congress, and I have a feeling it's going to be for a lot more than just two years this time.

...others were afraid to speak out against the neo-Con machine. Glad to see he's back in harness & working for us again.

Alan, if you're reading this thread -- congratulations and welcome back man. The world could use more people with your brand of character and integrity.

Thanks for fighting the good fight; it's an honor to cheer you on.
