ANNOUNCEMENT About the 2016 Elections – This Is a BIG DEAL!
By TPIWriter |
There has been much discussion in political circles about just who would be allowed on the Republican presidential primary debates. With so many candidates, networks have to make a decision… As there is only so much time to ask each candidate questions.
And the network that Republican voters care most about is Fox News. Unlike ABC, CBS, or MSNBC, they know that Fox News will give conservatives a fair chance to hear the issues we care about.
Fox News just made a huge announcement which changes everything. Fox announced that in addition to a 9 p.m. debate on August 6, the candidates with lower polling numbers will debate together at 5 p.m. Eastern the same day.
The earlier debate will last an hour, with the prime time debate extending to two hours.
That means, no matter who you support, your candidate will have his or her voice heard by millions!
Fox News is opening its 5 p.m. debate to all the announced Republican candidates who fail to make the cut for the Aug. 6 prime-time event, removing a requirement that participants reach at least 1 percent in polling.
The change amounts to an insurance policy for candidates who were in danger of being disqualified from the vital first debate based on low polls – Carly Fiorina, former New York Gov. George Pataki and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
The announcement by Michael Clemente, Fox News Executive Vice President, News, means that all 16 announced candidates will qualify for Cleveland — either the 5 p.m. undercard, or the 9 p.m. main event.
The previous rule set by Fox was the candidates had to have at least 1% in the tracking poll.
According to RCP, the prime time debaters will likely be Donald Trump, former Gov. Jeb Bush (Fla.), Gov. Scott Walker (Wis.), Sen. Rubio (Fla.), former Gov. Mike Huckabee (Ark.), Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas), Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), Gov. Chris Christie (N.J.), and Gov. John Kasich (Ohio).

Concerned Veterans for America’s Defend Freedom Tour Coming to
Tampa July 31 - Veterans Advocacy Group Will Rally Support for
VA Reform and Other Issues Affecting Vets, Military Families
Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America’s Defend Freedom Tour is coming to TPepin’s Hospitality Centre in Tampa on Friday, July 31st, from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
CVA will rally support for Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care reform—among
other pressing issues affecting veterans, members of the military, and their families—at this event.
It’s been a little over a year since news broke that Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals
across the country put veterans on secret waiting lists to give the appearance of access to timely medical care. While VA administrators pocketed bonuses for fudging the numbers, veterans faced excessive wait times and in some cases even died while waiting for an appointment. However, the issues with the VA do not end there.
A little over a month ago, The James A. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa was pointed out as having
a major pest control problem. An infestation of rats, rodents, roaches, and feces were found in
their facilities. Employees knew about the infestation problem, which included kitchen and
food service areas. Shockingly, the Infection Prevention Coordinator was more concerned with
ending up on the news for these problems than risking patient safety.
“It is shocking and quite frankly it is disgusting that we are allowing VA hospitals to remain open
while rats, rodents, and cockroaches infest their facilities,” said CVA Military Advisor and
Navy SEAL Veteran Jason Redman. “These men and women fought for our great country and
risked their lives time and time again only to come home to second class treatment.
Fundamental changes and reforms need to happen at VA hospitals across the nation,
but they need to start right here in Tampa."
Through the Defend Freedom Tour, CVA is bringing together veterans, military families,
and patriotic Americans to preserve the freedom and prosperity that we and our families
so proudly fought and sacrificed to defend.
Admission to the Tampa Defend Freedom Tour is FREE and includes a complimentary barbecue dinner.
This event features an amazing lineup of inspirational speakers: Gold Star Mother Karen Vaughn;
decorated Army Ranger and New York Times best-selling author Sean Parnell; Green Beret
and Stability Institute Founder Scott Mann; and Navy SEAL and author Lieutenant Jason Redman. Madison Rising, the nation’s most patriotic rock band, and Ayla Brown, country music performer,
will perform live.

and sacrificed to defend.
