Former Gov. Gary Johnson of New Mexico, the Libertarian presidential candidate in 2012, weighed in on Friday morning to attack the budget deal crafted by U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.
St. Leo University is now running polls and its first look at the 2014 Florida gubernatorial race shows former Gov. Charlie Crist, the favorite for the Democratic nomination, with a solid lead over Gov. Rick Scott. Crist beats out Scott 46 percent to 34 percent. Most other recent polls show Crist with a smaller lead. The poll used online sampling which remains very controversial with polling experts.
On Thursday, Gov. Rick Scott called for cutting $400 million in taxes and fees as he looks to roll back a motor vehicle registration fee enacted in 2009 by then-Gov. Charlie Crist. Despite being a Democrat for only a year, Crist is the favorite for his new party’s nomination to challenge Scott in 2014 even though he spent most of his political career with the Republicans.

Despite President Barack Obama shaking the hand of communist tyrant Raul Castro at Nelson Mandela’s funeral, a new poll shows Americans are not expecting relations with Cuba to improve over the next year.
Rasmussen Reports released a poll on Thursday which finds that a majority of likely voters -- 54 percent -- do not expect relations between the two nations to change much in the next year. While 10 percent think things will worsen, 17 percent believe relations will improve in 2014. Almost a fifth of those surveyed -- 18 percent -- are undecided.

U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., continues to showcase his opposition to the federal budget deal crafted by U.S. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., and U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.

The Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) has been focusing on attacking former Gov. Charlie Crist -- the favorite for the Democratic nomination to challenge Gov.
