Respect Your Elders!

Flip-Flop: John McCain and Marco Rubio won their Republican primaries.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) survived an insurgency attack. The two failed presidential candidates of 2008 and 2016, respectively have beaten their Republican primary challenger.

Conservatives were mounting a challenge against them.

The most notable is Kelli Ward. The insurgent was getting backing from major conservative groups. It wasn't enough. Donald Trump's last minute endorsement of McCain kind of killed the chances of Ward knocking him out.

In the beginning, Trump said that he loves the veterans, not the ones who were caught. The comment was aimed at McCain. McCain called Trump's supporters a bunch of lunatics. He said failed presidential candidates Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) were wacko birds.
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) lost his bid for the U.S. Senate. Defeated by Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-FL) in Democratic primary.
McCain who is dubbed himself as a "maverick" even said that Ward was more of a challenge than J.D. Hayworth, a former lawmaker turned conservative agitator.

Ward slipped by calling McCain old. You know Republicans are old, White and out of touch. A whipper snapper like Ward should have been more careful with attacking an elderly man.

McCain is a Vietnam veteran.

Rep. David Jolly (R-FL) was going to run for the seat but dropped out at the last minute given that Rubio was being coached into running against one of the two ethically challenged Democrats.

Rubio, the least productive lawmaker in the Senate claimed that his consideration into the race was motivated by the Orlando massacre. But actually it's the political expediency of his fellow Republicans leaders that drove him back into the race.

Mind you that Little Marco said he would retire from the senate if he failed to win the presidency. He changed his mind when Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) saw Florida being the firewall between a possible Clinton administration.
Former Democratic chairwoman, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz is forgiven by the voters. She beats Tim Conva, a law professor who was endorsed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), the failed Democratic presidential candidate.
Trump's support for Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) came just in time. The House Speaker handily beats his rival in a landslide.

Also the Democrats in Florida seem to like the former DNC chairwoman. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) survived an insurgent attack from the progressive Tim Conva.

Conva who was endorsed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) was hoping to upset an embattled Wasserman Schultz. She was facing harsh criticism over the handling of the DNC's debate schedule and perceived favoritism towards Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Wasserman Schultz resigned from the DNC after Wikileaks illegally obtained the emails of members.

Some of the emails were criticizing Sanders and his supporters for being sore losers and nuisances.

Rubio's challenger will be Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-FL). Murphy defeated scandal plagued Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL). Grayson and his own wife were defeated in the Democratic primary. Dena Grayson, a medical doctor and activist was defeated in the seat Alan Grayson gave up to run for the senate.

Grayson once again heads back to Florida a defeated man. Now he will be labeled perennial.

By the way, former Texas governor and perennial loser Rick Perry will be on Dancing With The Stars along with disgraced Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte.
