Many of you have never heard of Jack Kingston. Some of you have. In fact some you may even be represented by him in the US House of Representatives.
For those who don’t know, Rep. Kingston is a Republican who represents, among other towns, Savannah, GA.
I have had the pleasure of meeting him and even interviewing him when I was working at the NBC affiliate in Savannah.
Rep. Kingston did the coolest thing the other day, he voted against Florida…literally.
A house resolution congratulating the University of Florida on it’s National Championship hit the floor and Kingston was the only on to vote against it.
He was born in Athens, GA which is home to the University of Georgia. Georgia and Florida play every year in Jacksonville, FL which is effectionaly known as "the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party."
Kingston said he was routing for Florida because he is an SEC guy (right on!) but couldn’t bring himself to vote YES and congratulate the Gator’s.
Personally I say KINGSTON FOR PRESIDENT!
