Crenshaw, Corrine Brown Battle Foes for Congress; Perennial Candidate Seeks 4th District Seat; Ex-Navy Man Seeks District 3 Post

U.S. Reps. Ander Crenshaw and Corrine Brown of Jacksonville each drew an opponent in the Aug. 31 primary, as well as a write-in candidate for the Nov. 2 general election.

Brown, who has represented the 3rd District since 1993, squares off against Prince Brown of Orlando in the Democratic Party primary. No Republicans filed for the seat in the Nov. 2 general election.

Crenshaw, who joined Congress in 2001 in the 4th District seat, is being challenged by perennial candidate Deborah Katz Pueschel in the Republican Party primary. No Democrats are seeking the seat in the November election.

The presence of a write-in candidate means only Democratic voters can cast ballots in the District 3 primary contest, and only Republicans can vote in the District 4 contest.

Crenshaw and Pueschel competed in the 2002 Republican primary, with Crenshaw winning 90 percent of the vote.

Crenshaw said the most vital issue for the country and his district is national security. He said he has steered funding for improvements to Northeast Florida military bases so the region will be able to make a stronger case for keeping the bases when a national commission recommends a list of bases next year for closure around the country.

"What we've done is make it less likely that it [a Northeast Florida base] will be closed because it's become more strategic and more vital to our national security," he said.

Pueschel, who also ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2000, said the threat to national security comes from illegal immigration and terrorists entering the country.

"We have to be more vigilant in protecting the borders from terrorists and from illegal immigration," she said. "We've got to get back to basics and stop being so lax on immigration."

Crenshaw said tax cuts, which he supported, have stimulated strong economic growth over the past nine months. Pueschel said Congress has not cut spending in tandem with the tax cuts.

In the 3rd District, political newcomer Prince Brown said part of his motivation for running is because he is angry the incumbent, Corrine Brown, did not stop the Navy from forcing Prince Brown's resignation from the service in 2001.

Prince Brown, whose political advertisements show him in Navy uniform, said he ended his four-year stint in the Navy when he refused to be a witness against a fellow sailor who was under investigation. Brown said he felt like the military investigators were asking him to give statements that were not truthful. Brown said he appealed to the congresswoman to intervene and she responded to him that she could not influence the matter. …
