Some Dems fret about ‘heartbreaking’ McAuliffe-Aronberg primary

by George Bennett | November 21st, 2011

Former state Sen. Dave Aronberg says he’s still doing some “due diligence” before deciding whether to challenge Palm Beach County State Attorney Michael McAuliffe in a 2012 Democratic primary.

McAuliffe’s consultant says he expects Aronberg to run, while many party bigs say they are hoping to avoid a primary that county Democratic Chairman Mark Alan Siegel says would be “heartbreaking.”

    Mcauliffe should not take this lightly. Aronberg has already proven himself as a true person for the people where Mcauilffe has proved he is a media hound and will do anything to get face in the news. He is only trying to further his political future for a run at the governor seat. Aronberg has a lot of support from voters and the Democratic Party should listen to the voters.

    Dave stop blogging about yourself.
    Same crap with South County people.
    I would love to see Sharon Bock run against Mike. The only one who has brains in PBC but she is still nutty.

  3. Unamerican PBC democrat Czars Says:

    The communists in the democrat party don’t want anyone to run against the person already in office! It’s UNamerican.

    That’s not the American way. That’s not the democrat way. This sounds like the rigged elections in Russia with Putin taking control.

    What has happened to the democrat party in FL is downright scary.

    Democrats don’t want YOU to participate in government.

    They want to cement the current office holders as permanent fixtures in the party.

    NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO RUN!

    Be very afraid democrats.

    Palm Beach County democrats are the new Fidel Castros.

    They determine who leads for life and who gets to run for office.

    Genuflect you slaves and peons. No one gets to participate in the process but those who are “chosen”.

    Review the names of the individuals who control the democrat party in PBC who are advocating for no primary contests against democrat incumbents.

    Where are the blacks who could run for democrat office, NOT ALLOWED!

    where are the latinos who could run for democrat office, NOT ALLOWED!

    where are the haitians who could run for democrat office, NOT ALLOWED!

    where are the females who could run for democrat office,NOT ALLOWED!

    where are the asians who could run for democrat office, NOT ALLOWED!

    where are the Puerto Ricans who could run for office, NOT ALLOWED!

    Consider what binding commonality those in office currently have and consider the commonality of those advocating that NO ONE run in a democrat primary.

    DOMINATION!

    Be ASHAMED.

    Aronberg is a clown – he has done nothing but feed from the public trough and will even work for a nutjob republican (Pam Bondi) if it means a public salary. He took this job of fighting the pill problem in the state but is already planning his next race for office – thats a true career political hack – whatever job he’s doing now does not matter – his eye is always on another job, and he does no job well.

  5. Robert B. Says:

    McAuliffe’s marriage to Judge Robin Rosenberg should have been enought o keep him out of this position.

    The fact that if you have a kid who attends school with one of theirs, and breaks the law (kills someone), is a bonus for you. McAuliffe will let him walk out. Dude is a loser.

    If not Aronberg..anyone else!

  6. Doug Says:

    Michael McAuliffe has a strong prosecutorial background and has done great things for Palm Beach County. He has the drive and experience we want in our State Attorney. Why would a career politician like Dave Aronberg want a real attorney job? It doesn’t make sense for him to run. At least McAuliffe has shown that he actually cares about the well-being of his community. Aronberg should consider running for a different office…one he has more experience with.

  8. Concerned about PBC Says:

    I believe in the democratic process and believe that everyone deserves an opportunity to run. I don’t, however understand why Dave Aronberg is still thinking about running for state attorney. Why would someone who hasn’t ever worked in a state attorney capacity want to run for state attorney? Plus Michael McAuliffe already has the backing of the democratic party base in PBC and Florida. Aronberg does not have the experience or political backing to run for state attorney.

  9. Concerned Citizen Says:

    I think State Attorney Michael McAuliffe has done a great job. He is running because he genuinely cares about his responsibilities. He has a history of being tough on crime and is very anti-corruption-which is exactly what PBC needs. We don’t need a career politician as out State Attorney. We need leaders who want to make a difference. I voted for McAuliffe in 2008 and will vote for him again.

  10. Carol P Says:

    To The Concerned Citizen:
    You are mistaken if you think that Mcauliffe is not a career politician. He is grooming himself for Governor. Anti-Corruption? He is only targeting those who are not contributers to his campaign or “friends” of his supporters.
