30 days sober what to expect
He wraps up by asking the group of 40 or so to "place your confidence in me" and support an initiative on the November 6 ballot that would grant him broad powers to shape the future of Florida's premier city. A line of people with questions soon forms. "One of my concerns is, we need less government, I think; we need less consolidation of power," a bespectacled man named David Winker says. "Do we need a more active city government; do we need power consolidated?" The mayor gives a terse shake of his head. "It's not a consolidation of power," he says. "A hundred percent it is," Winker insists, prompting another denial from Suarez, who claims it's simply a shift. Though the charismatic young mayor represented this community for eight years as a city commissioner, and at least a few faces are familiar, it's not exactly a friendly crowd.

By Byron York From time to time, I've been catching up with a Republican strategist who is trying to help the GOP keep control of the House in this November's midterm elections. It's been an up-and-down ride. "I would put the odds of keeping the House at exactly 50-50," he told me in January."I get how bad things seemingly are," he said during a particularly tumultuous time in April. "But if the election were today, I'd bet my son's college tuition we'd keep the House."He was even more confident by June. "We keep the House," he told me.
