In the opening of Megyn Kelly’s Fox News Channel show on Tuesday night, Rep.-Elect David Jolly (R-FL) touted the merits of his Florida 13th congressional district win. He reacted to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s downplaying of the Democrats chances in the contest and argued there’s not much nationally to be drawn from the outcome.
Instead he insisted it was a local election. “Well, I think my new colleague Nancy Pelosi might be engaging in some spin control this evening. I will tell you this — Megyn I will tell you this, we can’t draw a mandate from this race. It was a very closely run race. And I don’t know the final percentages – this what not an overwhelming victory.
What was important is that a Republican in a district that President Obama had won twice, a first time candidate going up against a hand-picked candidate from out of town, picked by the national party, the national Democrats with all of the money behind her from the beginning, they were wrong with their message.
They were wrong on the issues. The reason we won this race is because we stood on issues and for a message that was right for our community and right for the future of our country.”
