John Russell (Florida politician)

John Russell (Florida politician)

John Russell (born February 11, 1956) is an American politician from Florida, the 2008 Democratic nominee for the U.S. House of Representatives from Florida's 5th congressional_district. He is running against the Republican incumbent Virginia Brown-Waite, to whom he lost in 2006.

Russell was born in Buffalo, New York. He is a businessman and acute care nurse practitioner who resides in Dade City, Florida, in the Tampa Bay area. He holds degrees from D'Youville College School of Nursing (BSN), Niagara University, SUNY Buffalo (MBA in Health Systems Management), and the University of South Florida School of Nursing (MSN).

In 2004 he sought the Democratic nomination to oppose Brown-Waite, but finished second in a four-person primary. He then became a regional coordinator for Betty Castor's 2004 campaign for United States Senate.

On September 5, 2006, Russell won a three-way Democratic primary. He attributed his victory to his willingness to confront the powerful, saying, "Democrats are sick of people who just go along and get along," although one of his opponents in the primary called him a "pit bull" for his aggressive style.

One issue raised by Russell was Social Security. The district has one of the highest concentration of retirees in the country. Russell is opposed to any privatization of Social Security, something that has been proposed several times by the Bush Administration.

Russell said he has opposed the war in Iraq since its inception, and now believes the U.S. needs to set a deadline for withdrawing troops.

Russell received 40.1% of the vote, to Brown-Waite's 59.9%. Brown-Waite had won by a 32% margin in 2004.

John Russell (bishop)

John Russell (died 30 December 1494) was an English Bishop of Rochester and bishop of Lincoln and Lord Chancellor.

He was admitted to Winchester College in 1443, and in 1449 went to Oxford as Fellow of New College. He resigned his fellowship in 1462, and appears to have entered the royal service.

In April 1467 and January 1468 he was employed on diplomatic missions for Edward IV of England to Charles the Bold, at Bruges. He was there again in February 1470 as one of the envoys to invest Charles with the Order of the Garter: the Latin speech which Russell delivered on this last occasion was one of William Caxton's earliest publications, probably printed for him at Bruges by Colard Mansion.

In May 1474 he was promoted to be keeper of the privy seal, and retained his office even after his consecration as bishop of Rochester on 22 September 1476, and translation to the post of bishop of Lincoln on 7 July 1480.

As a trusted minister of Edward IV, he was one of the executors of the king's will; but on 13 May 1483 he accepted the office of chancellor in the interest of Richard of Gloucester, apparently with great reluctance. He retained the great seal until 29 July 1485.

Russell was above all things an official, and was sometimes employed by Henry VII in public affairs. But his last years were occupied chiefly with the business of his diocese, and of the university of Oxford, of which he had been elected chancellor in 1483. He died at Nettleham, and was buried at Lincoln Cathedral.

Sir Thomas More calls Russell "a wise manne and a good, and of much experience, and one of the best-learned men, undoubtedly, that England had in hys time." Two English speeches composed by Russell, for the intended parliament of Edward V, and the first parliament of Richard III, are printed in Nichols's Grants of Edward V. Some other writings remain in manuscript.

For contemporary notices see especially More's Life of Richard III, the Continuation of the Croyland Chronicle, ap. Freeman Scriptores, and Bentley's Excerpta Historica, pp. 16-17.
