District Information

Please give a brief description of your district: The district ranges from Jacksonville to Orlando Fl and many consider this one of the most heavily gerrymandered Districts In the nation that was drawn primarily to allow the continued election/re-election of a minority to Congress. This District has seen changing Demographics since 2002 when the sitting Congresswoman (Corrine Brown) last had opposition. MANY of the Democrats in this District, over 58,000, can be classified as "Reagan Democrats" as in these rural counties, they vote almost exclusively Republican in Federal elections. In spite of what appears to be overwhelming odds, THIS election is winnable for a Republican this election ONLY. The angst of the voters, the lack of attention by this Congresswoman, and many other factors make this a winnable election for Republicans.

Percentage of Democrat, Republican, and Unaffiliated Voters: Democrat-63.5% Republican 19.3%- NPA 17.2%

NOTE: ONLY 41% of Democrats turned out in the '06 mid-term election! Rep. and NPA's are far better voters in this District when the incumbent has
opposition and has NOT had since 2002.

Survey Questions

(Please describe your feelings on the following with a number 1-10 or with
the response Undecided (1=Strongly Disagree, 2-4=Disagree, 5=Neutral, 6-9 Agree, 10=Strongly Agree)

I support Arizona's new immigration law SB 1070? (1-10) 10

As a member of Congress I will use the full power of my office, including
impeachment if necessary, to ensure the Executive Branch starts to enforce our existing border and immigration laws? (1-10) 10

Illegal Immigrants should be deported when detected in the interior of the
US? (1-10)10

I will oppose any form of Amnesty or path to citizenship for illegal
immigrants currently in the US because allowing them to become voters would destroy future immigration enforcement efforts? (1-10) 10

I support Comprehensive Immigration ENFORCEMENT which will reverse illegal immigration in America? (1-10) 10

I oppose Obama's Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty. (1-10) 10

I oppose Congressman Luis Gutierrez's Comprehensive Immigration Reform Amnesty bill H.R. 4321? (1-10) 10

I would have opposed John McCain and Ted Kennedy's Amnesty bill S. 1033 in 2005? (1-10) 10 and I worked to get it DEFEATED as well through grassroots efforts and through Numbers USA.

I oppose any non-emergency taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens, including
welfare, food stamps, licenses, and in-state tuition subsidies? (1-10) 10

I believe that employers who intentionally hire illegal aliens should be
heavily fined. (1-10) 10 and even severe jail time if blatantly
disregarding the laws.


If elected or re-elected to the US Congress, I will oppose any form of Amnesty or path to citizenship for illegal aliens, including Comprehensive Immigration Reform which would turn millions of illegal immigrants into voters thus destroying future borders of America. I will use the full power of my office, including impeachment if necessary, to insure the Executive Branch secures America's border immediately and begins to adequately enforce the existing immigration and border laws of the United States, which were enacted by Congress at the behest of America's citizenry. I understand that the failure of the Executive Branch to secure our borders and enforce existing immigration laws is depriving all Americans of a Republican form of government and depriving our states of protection from invasion as mandated by the US Constitution. I intend to use the power of Congress to immediately remedy this problem that is costing many Americans their jobs, wages, taxpayer resources, property, security, and sometimes their very lives.

So help me God,

Michael F. "Mike" Yost
