Early voting begins on March 1, and continues through March 9, for the March 11 special election in Florida’s 13th Congressional District to replace the late Congressman Bill Young.

David Jolly (R) will face Alex Sink (D).

Voters will decide which candidate best represents their values:

On Abortion

David Jolly is pro-life, and opposes using tax dollars to pay for abortion.

Alex Sink supports abortion for any reason.

On the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which protects unborn children 20 weeks and older who are capable of feeling pain from dismemberment and other abortion methods, is already law in ten states, and has passed the U.S. House of Representatives. When polled, 64% support these laws.

David Jolly would vote to protect unborn children who are capable of feeling pain from death by abortion.

Alex Sink says she will not support laws that protect babies 20 weeks and older who are capable of feeling pain from deaths by dismemberment abortions.

On Obamacare

Obamacare provides government funding for insurance plans that pay for abortion, and will lead to the rationing of lifesaving medical treatments.

David Jolly opposes Obamacare.

Alex Sink supports Obamacare.

Some political pundits are calling this race a “bellwether” for the 2014 elections. 51% of the voters in the 13th congressional district voted for Obama in 2012.

Pinellas County voters should compare, decide, then vote by March 11.
