  1. Regret that it came to this, but signing out.
  2. WOOD CLEANS HOUSE ON SUPER TUESDAY Q1 2020 | Press Release #8 SAN DIEGO, CA – Republican Presidential frontrunner Florian Wood (R-SC) celebrated with supporters in San Diego, California after a near-sweep of Super Tuesday primaries propelled the South Carolinian into a clear lead in delegates, taking every state up for grabs save Vermont. Wood said that it was still to early to be speaking of a presumptive nominee, but said he is "more optimistic than ever" about the prospects of his candidacy. "What started with an unknown first-term senator, a handful of supporters, and some big ideas about how to turn this country around has become a true political movement that is taking this country by storm. Our message is simple, but powerful – that age-old American values can solve 21st century problems and save the American Dream. I am so grateful to everyone who turned out to show their support, everyone who hit the campaign trail knocking on doors, making phone calls, or just telling their friends about our message. It is still too early to be talking about a presumptive nominee, there's a lot of work to be done and votes to win, but if anybody had any doubts as to who's the frontrunner, I hope this evening clears things up." -James Blake, Press Secretary
  3. Mr. President, I second the motion by the gentleman from Wisconsin. I yield.
  4. Florian G. Wood - @FlorianWood  My remarks regarding the Waco siege were distasteful and unbefitting the kind of trust I'm hoping to earn from Americans. I've issued a formal apology and hope to someday earn the forgiveness of anyone who felt hurt by the comments. I have my share of flaws and will always strive to do better going forward.
  5. Florian G. Wood - @FlorianWood  From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone who came out to support our near-sweep of Super Tuesday! Our movement is resonating with Americans, and we're ready to take it to the White House!
  6. Supporters of Florian Wood are gathered for a post-election celebration in a large ballroom at the U.S. Grant Hotel in San Diego, California. Wood enters with Happy by Pharrell Williams playing and takes the stage, waving and smiling at supporters. The Senator starts speaking as the applause dies down. Oh my goodness, ladies and gentlemen. All I can say is: Wow. Tonight, conservatives from San Diego to Vermont, from Texas to Massachusetts, have spoken, and their message is simple – Florian Wood. [pause for applause]. They've voted to send a candidate to the White House who's going to secure our border, fight for prosperity and opportunity, and meet 21st century problems with the age-old values that make this country great. Boy, what a ride it's been from just a few months ago when we launched this campaign back in Charleston, South Carolina – an unknown first-term senator, a handful of supporters, no money, and a whole lot of hope for what this country could be. Flash forward to Super Tuesday and we have a real movement underway, driven by patriots who are fired up and share a common dream for the land they love. Only in America. Now, it's too early to talk about presumptive nominees, but if anyone had any doubts about who's the frontrunner, I hope this evening helps clear things up! [pause for applause]. I have to take a moment to thank all those who have been involved in this movement so far – from my wife and daughters to my fabulous staff who've probably feel like they've been working 25 hour workdays. The biggest thanks, of course, goes out to all of you, without whom we'd just be sitting around thinking about what might be nice if it were changed in this country. You're the ones who are truly putting ideas into action, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. That said, it's far too early to be patting folks on the back – there's a lot of work to be done. Most of the country has yet to cast their votes – there are a lot of primaries to win and voters to meet, and I look forward to every second it. We need all hands on deck to win this thing, whether it's volunteering, phone-banking, knocking on doors, or sharing our Facebook page – anything and everything helps. I know I'm counting on you, America is counting on you, so let's hit the road! Thank you all so much, God bless you all, and God bless the United States of America. Wood welcomes his wife and daughters to the stage, kissing his wife before they all turn to wave to the crowd.
  7. WOOD APOLOGIZES FOR WACO COMMENTS Q1 2020 | Press Release #7 MOBILE, AL – Senator Florian Wood (R-SC) expressed regret for his comments regarding the Waco Siege during a campaign rally in Alabama prior to Super Tuesday, calling the comments a "stupid slip-up" unbecoming of his aspirations. "I want to formally apologize for the comments I made during a campaign rally about the Waco Siege, particularly to the families of those who lost their lives that day. When you're on the campaign trail day in and day out, you're bound to sometimes slip up and say things you regret, things whose meanings you didn't properly think through, and that's what happened here. I sincerely regret making light of a tragedy, there's no excuse, but I know that as I seek to win the trust of the American people for the highest office in the land, I have no choice but to do better going forward." -James Blake, Press Secretary
  8. Hello everybody, thank you all for coming out today. We're assembled here at a time of true national crisis; the decades-long procrastination of the Washington establishment is finally hitting paydirt, and there's tens of thousands of people in a migrant caravan headed for our border. This caravan is only one small piece of a much larger problem – uncontrolled migration at the southern border. The time has finally come when the American people are saying they've had enough, politicians are finally beginning to perk up, and the golden opportunity to finally secure our border is now! It is true that we are a nation of immigrants, and that's part of why I'm proud to be an American. But we are also a nation of laws, in which all judged by the same standard and nobody gets a free pass. Millions of people have entered this country throughout our history, and they did so legally. They waited in line, some were turned away, they sacrificed and did what our laws required to finally become an American. It is nothing short of a betrayal of our immigrant legacy and a betrayal of first-generation immigrants today that we would suddenly give people a free pass just because they managed to hop the border. We're rewarding crime, it's deplorable, and Americans have had enough. Now, there was a time long ago – well, actually, just a few years ago – when border security was a bipartisan issue, when people on the left including Barack Obama and Chuck Schumer supported common-sense measures like the border wall. Heck, President Obama deported more illegal migrants than any president in history. So when the left tells us it's "racist" or "cruel" or, my favorite one, "too expensive" to enforce our border laws, you've got to ask, was Barack Obama a cruel, racist profligate? I have plenty of beef with the former President, but I don't think he's those things. What's more likely is they've realized the politics have changed and think they can win more votes by promoting this open borders pipe dream without care for the consequences for ordinary Americans. The time has come to take our border seriously. It's time to build the wall, mandate e-verify, end catch-and-release, deport illegals, and defund sanctuary cities. There's no other choice, folks, the law simply has to be enforced. We owe it to our legacy as an immigrant nation, we owe it to all those immigrants who came here legally, to enforce the law and make sure everybody who comes into this country is someone we want in our country. I hope you'll join us as we fight to take our country back, thank you and God bless.
  9. Good evening ladies and gentlemen, thank you all for coming out here today. I'd like to begin by paying tribute to those who lost their lives in the Painted Rocks Dam failure in Hamilton the other week. These people are nothing less than victims of years-long failure in Washington by both parties to come together to pass comprehensive infrastructure reform and investment. Both parties agree on the need to invest in infrastructure and both parties have been calling for it for years. So why isn't anything getting done? I haven't been in Washington very long, but I've been there long enough to know how good ideas die. Too often, Washington politics deteriorate into pettiness, credit-grabbing, and obstruction. Both sides try to turn good bills into unpassable ones by attaching all manner of partisan riders, and in the end, nothing gets done. What's needed now is for both parties to come together and hammer out a compromise – but we're not going to get there President Trump was elected on a pledge to invest $1 trillion in infrastructure during his term; unfortunately, Congress hasn't gotten it done. What I am here to do today is to call for the biggest infrastructure investment of this century to create shovel-ready jobs in our heartland right away while putting the infrastructure in place that we need to connect businesses and spur investment. We're talking roads, highways, airports, canals, railways, sea ports – the works. America's infrastructure should once again be the pride of our nation and the envy of others. In however-many thousand years when archaeologists are looking at our civilization, they'll say, "To hell with Rome, all roads lead to Pittsburgh!" That is the scale of what we're talking about here – we're going to make history, and we're gonna do it in a way that benefits everyday people. That, ladies and gentlemen, will be the legacy of our American civilization – hard work, opportunity, and something to show for it all. It's time for us to think big as a country once again. So how are we going to do that? Well, it has to be a bipartisan effort. We won't be able to get it done as one party, we'll never get past the partisan gridlock of the capital. So let's bring together Republicans and Democrats and work out a compromise. It shouldn't be that hard, both parties say they want it. Well, it's time for them to put their money where their mouth is. Thank you all, God bless you, and God bless the USA.
  10. Advertisement #9: "The Flip-Flop Candidate Type: Radio Location: MA ($400,000), AL ($200,000), VT ($100,000) NARRATOR: Cassius McKnight says he's a man of principle. His record says otherwise. NARRATOR: While Florian Wood has pledged comprehensive entitlement reform from the beginning, Cassius McKnight flip-flopped on raising the retirement age, calling policies he originally supported "immoral." NARRATOR: Florian Wood has pledged to make the Trump Tax Cuts permanent to keep our economy roaring. Cassius McKnight claims he wants low taxes, but supports eliminating key deductions on health insurance, mortgages, and payroll. NARRATOR: Florian Wood is endorsed by conservatives like Luke Recks, Mike Madison, America First, and the Christian Coalition. Cassius McKnight was endorsed by George Soros and defended the Clinton mega-donor, going so far as to call his fellow Republicans anti-semites. Then he flip-flopped, renouncing Soros but failing to apologize for his unwarranted attacks. NARRATOR: Florian Wood is a man of principle and a respected conservative. Cassius McKnight says one thing, but does another. How can we trust he'll implement his pledges as President when they change with the weather? NARRATOR: Cassius McKnight – the flip-flop candidate. *rapidly* Paid for by Florian Wood for President.

  12. Florian G. Wood - @FlorianWood  I voted against a bill that would have essentially been a helicopter drop for the EPA + drinking water (which got money from the Flint bill) while ignoring other needs. I'm pledging overwhelming, comprehensive infrastructure reform, not handouts to govt agencies.
