• 101-Year Old Florida Democrat Runs for Congress

    You're never too old to follow your dreams.


    “You learn through life you have certain responsibilities, and if you don’t fulfill them, how can you look in the mirror?”

    Those are the words of one Grandpa Joe, a retired senior citizen in Sarasota, now running against Republican Vern Buchanan, who has faced multiple ethics investigations during the past 8 years. Grandpa Joe’s platform? Medicare, anti-poverty programs, and Social Security–a program he actually helped set up oh-so many years ago.

    Too old? Too risky? Too liberal? Say what you want, but here’s a Democrat who actually lived through The Great Depression. Give him two minutes of your time to hear him out (he’s only technically a write-in candidate anyway, and isn’t expected to get much of any Democratic support).
