Republican Congressional Candidate in Florida Would Not Build Border Wall

Published

on

A Republican Candidate for U.S. Congress in Florida’s 23rd Congressional district did not agree with President Donald J. Trump’s plan to build a wall at the Southern border in 2016.

“[A] wall will not solve the immigration problem. Period,” said Carla Spalding when asked if she would support building a wall. “If we’re going to spend $25 billion, employ our own people to the Border Patrol. Increase that. I think that would make more sense. That would people income into our own people, instead of just a wall.”

Spalding, a registered nurse, came in third, running as an independent for Florida’s 18th Congressional district in 2016.

“First of all, I am an immigrant,” she said. “I can tell you this – that it takes anywhere up to as much as 15 years to come to this country legally. So first if we can start off with actually fixing that problem – the application problem within our own country – that will help eliminate.”

Spalding has since changed her party affiliation and taken a more pro-Trump stance. However, she supported Marco Rubio in 2016, even donating to his campaign.

Big League Politics reported:

A candidate for U.S. Congress from the Sunshine State who has advertised herself as pro-Trump is hot water after new information has surfaced that contradicts her public statements.

“Registered nurse Carla Spalding is a candidate for US Congress, Florida District 23, which takes up much of Broward and Miami-Dade Counties,” according to Hype.  “In 2016, Spalding ran as an Independent in a different Congressional race, in Palm Beach County, where she currently has a residence. Today, she is renting an apartment in Broward County to give off the impression that she lives in the district.”

It is unclear when Spalding changed her political party affiliation, but after pitching herself as a Trump supporter from the beginning, political contribution records actually show that she is a Marco Rubio donor:

Rubio was the only presidential candidate to which Spalding donated during the 2016 cycle.

BLP Passage Ends. 

On August 28, Spalding will face off with two primary opponents, attorney Carlos Reyes and writer Joe Kaufman. The winner of the primary will take on incumbent Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL).

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”

Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
