Pam Keith was the Democratic Nominee for Florida’s 18th Congressional District, winning the 2020 primary with 80% of the vote—a record for this district. Unfortunately she lost to a much lesser human. But whatever Pam chooses to do next is going to be really great. Pam is the daughter of a U.S. Diplomat and former U.S. Ambassador. She was born in Turkey and lived in Morocco, Syria, Brazil, and several U.S. cities before going to high school in Oakland, CA and attending U.C. Davis for her BA and MA degrees. She then attended Boston College Law School where she was Moot Court champion and made Law Review. Her desire to serve her country led Pam to commission into the U.S. Navy as a JAG Officer in 1995. She served for four years, including a tour as Officer in Charge of the Legal Services Office in Bahrain. Ms. Keith later served as the first JAG assigned to the Navy Task Force on Computer Network Security. She speaks French, Spanish, and Portuguese. When elected, Pam will serve as the first Black female veteran in the history of the United States Congress.
David Campbell is an Australian singer/songwriter who is also the host of The Today Show every weekday morning LIVE from Sydney. He is also one of my oldest and closest friends / mates. I was so happy to have his perspective from down under
Bill Boyle is a well sourced and connected businessman who lives in Washington DC with his wife and son. Bill is a trusted friend and source for me who I met after he listened and became a regular and highly respected caller of my siriusxm radio show. Bill is a voracious reader and listeners love to hear his take. I think his analysis is as sharp as anyone you will hear on radio or TV and he has well placed friends across the federal government who are always talking to him. As far as I can tell he is not in the CIA. Follow him on twitter and park at his garages.
