    FYI:

    I was looking at a so called debate on Too Hot and some are saying there were no Dem surprises. Right and left all "Main stream"?


    It's like NPR over there. Gordon would be Attila the Hun

      Well, now, we have a crackerjack general election. I fear you guys are underestimating Gillum
      He is very personal and will be well financed. Furthermore, if Gillum wins the left will have captured the Democratic Party and the 2020 Democratic candidate will be Bernie or an acolyte. Money will flow into Gillum's campaign like you have never seen.

        Really?

        We got someone who hates ICE,wants to raise taxes, give Universal Health Care, wants to impeach Trump, wants free college...Monkey it up was being nice.

        This guy screwed up Tallahassee beyond belief.

        The voters know that the governor can't raise taxes, give free medical care, etc., without the legislature. Many will understand that they have a "free" vote without worrying about the negative consequences of an agenda that will not be enacted. They can freely put in office a man they like.

          I bet you most voters don't realize its the legislature that controls most of the stuff in the budget and the Governor's main power is just the veto threat when it comes to that. I think the Governor does have line item veto power here but I remember the legislature overturning Scott on some of those.

          Nice move here. Also, the corruption bell with be rung a million times about Gillum. Those in Tally say he's shady as shyt.

            I’m not sure many voters hear the corruption bell. And it’s only allegations at present. Nothing tangible.

            They will, and it doesn't matter if it's proven or not. It may not stick to Gillum, but it will to his boys.

            I made it through the whole thing. Very enlightening as to what RD needs to prepare for.

              His boys will likely take the fall. Gillum not so much. He’s a lot smarter than he looks.

              Well they better take it quick, because he will be dogged about corruption soon.

              Also, Candice Owens and Larry Elder are already attacking Gollum on the race card

              He will be dogged. But if you know about Andy, he thrives on this stuff. He seems to be literally coated with Teflon. Regardless, the FBI doesn't seem to be in any hurry either way.

              Dude, they FBI not being in a hurry is the point. No chance for his boys to take the fall. It will hang over him the entire campaign

              I one hundred percent get your point. My point is that a supposed FBI investigation isn’t going to bother a large portion of Florida’s voting population. Hillary won the popular vote with much greater character issues. DeSantis has nothing that he can point to that shows the FBI is actually investigating Andy. Only the FBI knows and they aren’t saying.

              It’s not about flipping votes, it’s about keeping votes at home. The presidential election was as much about voting against a candidate than for one. This is different. It’s about keeping liberal whites and Hispanics at home. I think the Trump endorsement will help with the black vote as well. It may not be substantial, but it’s likely worth about 2-3% more AA votes.
