Frankel to team up with Pelosi for Medicare forum in North Boca Monday

Lois Frankel

Former West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel is adding a high-profile notch to her Congressional candidacy belt a week before the Aug. 14 Democratic primary.

U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.


U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the former House leader from California, will join Frankel for a Medicare forum at an assisted living facility in North Boca Raton Monday morning.

National Democrats, who’ve made the new Palm Beach-Broward District 22 one of their highest-priority races in the country, have thrown their clout behind Frankel in the race, thus far virtually ignoring the primary match-up against Broward County Commissioner Kristin Jacobs. They’re focused instead on the November contest against Republican Adam Hasner, who doesn’t have a primary.

While Pelosi’s a divisive figure on the national stage, appearing side-by-side with the often-vilified former majority leader just a week before the primary – and after early voting begins this weekend – likely won’t hurt Frankel with hard-core Dems who typically show up at the polls in primaries.

Frankel garnered the support of Emily’s List, Planned Parenthood, the National Organization for Women and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The DCCC chief, U.S. Rep. Steve Israel, joined Frankel for a fundraiser earlier this year. Frankel jumped into the race last year in an effort to oust U.S. Rep. Allen West, who moved out of the coastal district after the GOP-dominated legislature redrew it with a Democratic edge.

The Monday event will be held at the The Veranda Club at 10:30 a.m.

  1. Here's the Evidence less screening and visits Says:

    Two old bags- Pelosi and Frankel (btw, do you know that Nancy Pelosi’s constituents pay over $18,000 per MONTH for her congressional office in CA!

    Did you know that Nancy Pelosi’s income increase 62% in 2010! and that was during the recession that she made that monetary coup!

    Did you know that Nancy Pelosi abused the privilege of the military jets at her disposal, by flying just her family, no other government officials, no representatives, just her family back to CAlifornia after a visit to Washington. And guess who picked up the tab for that flight? Yes, the American taxpayers.
    Pelosi is rich enough to charter a private flight or put her family in the first class section of a commercial flight, but no, she has us pay for her family’s personal flight home.

    That is disgusting, arrogant, a finger to the American public.

    The democrat party needs fresh new faces. Stop putting up the same people over and over after they termed out of other political positions. That’s Frankel!

    Frankel has left the City of WPB in debt. The balloon payment is coming due for the citizens of WPB. Their taxes haven’t gone up yet, the balloon payment comes due very soon.

    Women’s healthcare…be sure to ask about the government’s recommendations of the frequency of mammograms, gyno visits-screenings..the older you are the less visits and screenings you get.

    DON’T BELIEVE IT? Then READ:
    http://www.womenshealth.gov/screening-tests-and-vaccines/screening-tests-for-women/

    Read for yourself, what was once guaranteed for a yearly visit has now changed. Check out the age ranges for screenings, visits, testings. That’s the ‘death panels’ the government, not your personal doctor, but the government has decided should be implemented.

    Your children and grandchildren will have less testing, unless you can afford additional testing yourself.

    Don’t let government determine your personal medical decisions. That should be between you and your doctor.

    Stop thinking that the government knows what’s best for you, personally.
