Newt Gingrich

On Wednesday, I was honored to speak at the Winter Meeting of the Republican National Committee about the how important and impactful the 2018 elections could be for America. Below is an excerpt of my remarks.Let me thank all of you, particularly those I was just chatting with, for your generosity. I have been active in the Republican Party a fairly long time, longer than the younger people here have been alive. And I want to talk to you from the heart. When Ronna and I talked about coming by, I think it was precisely because I had enough distance to look at these things and to be involved on a number of occasions.First of all, I thought last night’s State of the Union rivaled anything that Ronald Reagan did. It was just astonishingly effective. President Trump found specific individuals whose stories weren’t just important as wonderful human stories, but they each illustrated a part of the American tapestry in the American culture in a way that reminded all of us America is such a wonderful country. I thought it was a very powerful and very effective speech.Read more

Florida lawmakers pass historic gun-control bill

TALLAHASSEE — For the first time in two decades, the Republican-controlled Legislature passed Wednesday night major gun-control measures while also agreeing to arm some teachers and other school staff. The gun and school-safety bill was approved in response to the Feb. 14 mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland that left 17 students and faculty dead. After more than seven hours of emotional debate that hit the sensitive political subjects of gun control, education and race, the House voted 67-50 in favor of the bill, sending it to Gov.Rick Scott. After the vote, Andrew Pollack, father of Meadow, 18, who was killed in the attack, applauded the Legislature for approving the bill but pledged to push for more gun control. Read more

Rick Scott Besting Bill Nelson in New Poll
March 7, 2018

A new poll shows Gov. Rick Scott ahead of U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., in what is expected to be one of the nation’s most important U.S. Senate races this year. St. Leo University, which is located in Pasco County, released a poll showing Scott taking 42 percent while Nelson pulls 35 percent while 15 percent are not sure and 9 percent of voters back other candidates. Most recent polls have shown a closer race. Scott does well with Florida voters, according to the poll with 60 percent of those surveyed seeing him as favorable while 34 percent view him in an unfavorable light and 6 percent are not sure of him after his two terms as governor. Read more

Attorney General Bondi's Weekly Briefing - March 9

Working together, this week, our state took quick action to secure Florida schools and protect students. I am extremely proud of Governor Rick Scott and every member of our legislature who voted in favor of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Act, to make sure what happened in Parkland, less than a month ago, never happens again.
This legislation provides $400 million to hire more school resource officers and increase mental health services, gives law enforcement more authority to keep weapons out of the hands of mentally ill people courts have deemed a threat, bans bump stocks, raises the age to purchase a firearm and more crucial steps to keep students safe.
It also provides funding for my office to create a secure-reporting app to allow students to anonymously report concerning behavior. Students who survived the shooting are helping us develop, design and name the app.
I am in awe of these students and the parents who lost children in this horrific attack. While their grieving will last a lifetime, they fought through the pain and took immediate action. Days after the shooting they headed to Tallahassee to demand change.
It’s because of them, less than a month after the shooting—at least for a brief moment—grieving turned into celebrating, as the state legislature brought change in the name of their children and Governor Scott signed the bill into law.
This bill is not perfect, and sadly it will not bring back the 17 lives lost in the horrific school shooting, but the safety of our children is not a political issue—it’s simply the right thing to do. Republicans and Democrats put politics aside and passed historic school safety changes and I am so proud of what these survivors have accomplished.
