Florida New Dems

The New Democrat Coalition: A group of 68 centrist, pro-business House Democrats.

HERE
Twenty of the 30 newly-elected Democrats who pledged to reject corporate cash took campaign contributions from the corporate-funded NewDemPAC. In Florida: Darren Soto, Debbie Wasserman Schultz,  
Stephanie MurphyCharlie Crist, 
Val Demings,

Florida Amendment 4 Pause

Florida GOP might not be ready to put Amendment 4 — a measure approved by 64.5% of Florida voters that would give voting rights back to most felons who have completed their sentences — into action.
 According to WFTV 9,  the state has put enforcement of the amendment on pause until the new governor, Republican Ron DeSantis, is sworn in. WFTV reported that lawmakers are waiting to see if the Florida Legislature might need to weigh in on the measure. The amendment, which would restore voting rights to more than 1.5 million felons, does not call for any involvement of this kind. HERE
