Marielena Stuart, Latest GOP Senate Candidate, Once Banned from Catholic College
Stuart lives in the town of Ave Maria, located in the middle of nowhere in Collier County and marketed, at one point, as a community of faith around the university. Marielena, while working as a journalist for a Catholic newspaper, says she was banned from a press conference at the school after coming into conflict with town and university leaders, including multi-millionaire founder Tom Monaghan.
The announcement is chock full of familiar phrases like, "Yet freedom is never really free, is it?" and "America stands at the raw edge of a great precipice."
She has also established an official campaign website. With Mike McCallister coming out of nowhere to lead the polls, perhaps we could see Stuart makes waves in the race.
