Are Ads Making A Difference For Florida Voters?

Florida's Right Wing Infestation Growing

For many in politically diverse Florida, this may not be good news: But Republicans in the state’s GOP-controlled Legislature got more conservative this election year. The American Conservative Union’s ratings for Florida lawmakers found that Republicans in Tallahassee scored an average 85.5 out of 100 this year — compared with 70 in 2015. here

Rick Scott’s War on Zika in 14 easy steps

Whenever a new Zika case is confirmed in Florida, I will immediately rush to that county and stage a “round-table” discussion. If no actual round tables are available, I will settle for a rectangular one or (if absolutely necessary) a square one. I’ll invite a sufficient number of local office-holders and health officials to fill all seats at the table. This will give the appearance of harmonious teamwork. It will also discourage Sen. Marco Rubio from showing up to steal the spotlight, because there won’t be any more chairs.

'Souls to the Polls' march in Fort Lauderdale

Nearly 300 voters pushed strollers, held placards and chanted as they walked Sunday afternoon from the New Hope Baptist Church to the African-American Research Library a mile away to cast their ballots on the final day of early voting.
For the mostly black participants, voting early was not only a way to encourage others in their community to cast their votes in the primary but also to fulfill their own civic duty. here

Pat Kemp Poll Disappears From Local Website

A poll showing Pat Kemp with a commanding lead in her race for Hillsborough County Commissioner has been taken down from the pro-establishment website
"St. Petersblog". here

Laila Abdelaziz Endorses Ed Narain

Ed Narain (In my opinion, Ed is one of the most impressive state legislators we have. Although he has served a short time in the State House, electing Ed to the State Senate would do a lot to strengthen the State Democratic Party’s leadership) here

Dixie Chicks are down with the #Fightfor15

Remember that band that made a stir when they stood up against injustice during the invasion of Iraq? Of course the Dixie Chicks are down with the #Fightfor15. They have a long history of standing up for what's right.
