The weekend of August 10th on The Credit Report with Bill Lewis


Interesting guests and timely topics will be on AM 740 WSBR and AM 1470 WWNN the weekend of August 10th and The Credit Report with Bill Lewis.

As a daily forum for business and financial news, politics, economic trends, and cutting edge issues, The Credit Report with Bill Lewis moved south on the dial late last year to AM 740 WSBR.  Hosted by Bill Lewis, the show broadcasts live weekdays at 7am.

Originally launched on AM 1400 WFTL in 2004, as the “Credit Restoration Consultants Hour,” Bill Lewis provided self-help tips and advice regarding credit repair, finances, and related topics. Throughout the years, Bill’s show strayed from the original concept of providing financial awareness to his listeners.

In an effort to strengthen his listener base and to broaden the topics hosted, Bill launched The Credit Report with Bill Lewis upon moving to AM 1470 WWNN within the Beasley Broadcasting group.

Listeners were searching for help regarding a myriad of topics from credit repair, extreme coupon shopping, and foreclosure matters, but welcomed the political format that Bill introduced locally to a south Florida audience.

Guests this weekend on The Credit Report with Bill Lewis:

Former House majority leader and current Congressional District 22 candidate Adam Hasner will appear and discuss his campaign and endorsements from Florida Senator Marco Rubio and former Governor Jeb Bush.  Hasner has succeeded where Republican presidential and senate hopefuls have failed.  No other candidate for public office has been able to obtain endorsements from Rubio and Bush, the two most influential names in Florida GOP politics.

Julie C. Shapiro Harris will appear and discuss her candidacy for the Broward County Circuit Court in Group 19.  Restricted by the judicial canons, candidates for judicial office are prohibited from discussing topics surrounding potential legal issues.  Shapiro-Harris will discuss her resume and credentials as well as endorsements received within the community.

Former presidential appointee and elections attorney Gineen Bresso will appear and discuss her political plans and aspirations.  As a former Commissioner and Chair of the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, Bresso is an announced candidate to replace Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in Florida’s Congressional District 23.

Jim Gleason will appear and discuss his candidacy for the Florida House of Representatives in District 97.  Running in an open seat, Gleason will discuss his resume and credentials and explain why he is the best candidate to represent parts of Coral Springs, Tamarac, Sunrise, Plantation, and Parkland in Tallahassee.

Stanley Blumenthal – an eccentric 87 year-old retired Merchant Marine – will appear and discuss his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives in Florida’s Congressional District 25.  Running as an NPA, Blumenthal promises to “shake-up” the political establishment as a “Socialist” or “American Patriotic Communist.”  In a race that boasts the “VoteForEddie.com” domain name as a candidate, Elect Comrade Blumenthal is the motto of this campaign. 

Broward County Circuit Court Judge Dale Ross will appear and discuss his candidacy for re-election in Group 32.  Restricted by the judicial canons, candidates for judicial office are prohibited from discussing topics surrounding potential legal issues.  As the second longest serving Chief Judge in Florida, Ross will discuss his resume and credentials as well as endorsements received within the community.

Former prosecutor and Fort Lauderdale criminal defense attorney Jim Lewis will appear and discuss his candidacy for Broward State Attorney as the only Republican for this countywide office in 2012. Lewis is challenging incumbent Michael Satz and Chris Mancini, a former federal prosecutor turned defense attorney. Mancini switched his voter registration from independent to Democrat so he could run against Satz in the party’s primary. Lewis will face the winner of the August primary.

Foreclosure defense attorney Carlos Reyes will appear and discuss the latest developments in the mortgage foreclosure crisis. After nearly a year of negotiations, federal and state officials and five major mortgage servicers (Ally Financial, Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citibank, and Wells Fargo) recently announced a $25 billion settlement over alleged foreclosure and mortgage loan-servicing abuses.

Former Broward County Court Judge Julio Gonzalez will appear and discuss his candidacy for the Broward Circuit Court in Group 45.  Restricted by the judicial canons, candidates for judicial office are prohibited from discussing topics surrounding potential legal issues.  As one of the highest-rated former County Court Judges in Broward, Gonzalez will discuss his resume and credentials as well as endorsements received within the community.

Retired Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Captain Mark Chamberlain will appear and discuss his candidacy for Hendry County Sheriff.  As the favored Republican candidate in the August 14th primary, Chamberlain will discuss his vision of making the Hendry County Sheriff’s Office the finest rural Sheriff’s office in Florida and one that all Hendry County citizens and visitors can rely upon and be proud.

Since the show’s inception, Bill Lewis has interviewed some of the country’s leading politicians, including: Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, Herman Cain, Chris Christie, Jon Huntsman, Allen West, Rick Scott, George LeMieux, Jeff Atwater, Pam Bondi, Marco Rubio, Sharon Day, Alex Sink, Adam Putnam, Charlie Crist, Bill McCollum, Jeff Kottkamp, Jennifer Carroll, Christine O’Donnell, among others.

Congressman Allen West Has Shut the Door on U.S. Senate Run


The Republican field of candidates has been narrowed to nine – as of last count – in the race to unseat Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL) in 2012.  Congressman Allen West (FL-22) has shut the door and announced his intent to seek re-election to the Broward-Palm Beach seat he won in 2010.

Following a record breaking fundraising quarter and a push from fellow Republicans to seek higher office, West has decided to stay put in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The outspoken freshman and Tea Party favorite from Plantation stirred the interest of reporters and Republican supporters in an interview last week when he stated that the door was “cracked very slightly” for running. 

“I cracked it open enough so that people can slip a note under the door and I can read the note,” said West.  “And I can write back on the note ‘probably not.'”

On Monday, Congressman Allen West shut the door on a possible U.S. Senate run with the following statement:

(BOCA RATON, FL)  Congressman Allen West announced today that he is running for reelection for the House of Representatives and is closing the door on a race for the United States Senate.

Congressman West stated:

“Over the last several weeks, numerous leaders of the Florida Republican Party, including current and past elected officials, have spoken to me about the race for the United States Senate. Out of respect, I was willing to listen.

They realize, as do I, that we need to change the United States Senator for the State of Florida. Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senator Bill Nelson are not acting in the best interests of Floridians and the American people.

In November of 2010, the citizens of the 22nd Congressional District sent me to Capitol Hill to right our fiscal ship of state, to work to rebuild our economy and to create jobs.

For the last two weeks, I have traveled the Congressional District and spoken clearly to the citizens that while we have made progress these last seven months, there is still so much to accomplish for our country. I believe the place where I can best effect the needed change is from the People’s House – the House of Representatives.

I have been given one of the highest honors to serve in the House of Representatives and I will continue to serve the citizens in that capacity. I will not seek the Republican nomination for the United States Senate in 2012. With regard to my future, the only goal I have is to do my very best to represent the constituents of the Congressional District and to restore the exceptionalism of our nation.”

With Congressman West announcing his intent to seek re-election in CD-22, the Republican field of candidates to challenge Senator Bill Nelson has been narrowed to Bill Fisher Jr., Alexander George, Adam Hasner, George LeMieux, Mike McCalister, Ron McNeil, Craig Miller, Ron Rushing, and Marielena Stuart.

Mike Haridopolos Quits U.S. Senate Race


State Senate President Mike Haridopolos’ campaign for the U.S. Senate has unexpectedly ended.   This is just days after two top staffers announced their resignations.

The departure of campaign manager Tim Baker and campaign advisor Pat Bainter were the last in a series of stumbles and missteps that plagued Haridopolos, who has had trouble serving in his role as Senate president while campaigning for the United States Senate.

“It became increasingly clear to me, and those around me, that the responsibilities I was managing on both fronts are in conflict. I truly believed I could handle both jobs, but I was wrong. Now I am determined to make it right,” said Haridopolos.

“Today, I am announcing that I will no longer be a candidate for the United States Senate, nor will I seek any other office this year or next. Instead, I am re-dedicating myself to finishing the job you sent me to do here in Florida,” he said.

The Senate field has now been narrowed to Florida’s 34th Senator – George LeMieux, former House Majority leader Adam Hasner, retired Army Colonel Mike McCalister and former Ruth’s Chris CEO Craig Miller. The Republicans are vying to take on incumbent Democratic Senator Bill Nelson.

“I wish Mike, Stephanie, and his family all the best and thank them for their commitment to public service,” said former U.S. Senator George LeMieux. 

“Mike Haridopolos is a leader who has worked for years to push a bold vision in the Florida legislature. Mike and I agree that to create good jobs for Floridians we need to reduce our debt and create an environment that nurtures America’s entrepreneurial spirit.  I hope Mike’s supporters will consider joining me in my fight to retire Bill Nelson and end Harry Reid’s reign as Majority Leader,” concluded LeMieux.

Mike McCalister, and Craig Miller have not returned calls or text messages for comment.

“Mike Haridopolos has always been a friend.  He made a difficult decision today and I respect him for making it.  Jillian and I wish Mike, Stephanie and the entire Haridopolos family the very best,” said Adam Hasner in a written statement.

“Our campaign remains focused on the important issues facing our country, and the principled, limited-government leadership we need in Washington,” concluded Hasner.
