Adam Putnam Welcomes Trump's Decision To Roll Back The Clean Water Rule

“The federal government overstepped its authority under the Obama Administration with its overreaching and nonsensical WOTUS rule. I applaud EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s move to undo these overly burdensome regulations that cost American workers precious dollars to meet unnecessary and unscientific standards.” Adam Putnam
This man wants to be our next governor.

Local Activist Denied Free Speech By GOP Hillsborough County Commissioner Stacy White

"I was escorted out of a public town hall by two police officers and DENIED my right to free speech because Hillsborough County Commissioner White couldn't handle being put on the spot about his open, unabashed racism. I was barely through introducing myself when he told me I was out of line. I persisted at trying to get through my question, but Commissioner White would not let me, and I was walked all the way off the property." 
We warned you guys about this man years ago.

Florida Public Education Sucks

Florida has long struggled to take the lead in the State Most Hostile To Public Education contest, with North Carolina, Wisconsin and Nevada giving some real competition. But last week, Florida’s legislature and governor took a decisive leap forward. Let there be no doubt ― no state is more hostile to the very idea of public education than Florida. here

Florida GOP Sees Very Good Year For GOP In 2018

For all the anger and energy apparent among Democrats in Florida since Trump's election, the state's political elites so far expect 2018 to be, yet again, a strong year for Republican candidates.
"Any frustrations with Trump that should benefit Democrats is dwarfed by a messageless, Democrat Party in chaos. Hugely, big midterm victories ahead for Republicans," said one Republican. here
