Democrats And Republicans In Florida's Governor's Race Got The Opponent They Wanted

Democrats And Republicans In Florida's Governor's Race Got The Opponent They Wanted

Flake's seat is coveted by Democrats who are hoping to win a Senate majority in the fall.

Gillum welcomed the support of Color of Change, Indivisible, Democracy for America, Our Revolution, the Working Families Party, the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, Women's March Florida, National Nurses Union, NextGen America, the Florida Immigrant Coalition and other progressive groups.

Democrats have gone with a string of centrist white candidates in recent years, all of whom have come up short, leaving the party's liberal base sour and second-guessing the best way to win. Gillum has promised to inject $1 billion into education and supports Medicare for All and Trump's impeachment.

Florida's Democratic nominee for governor says the state is looking for a leader who will bring people together, "not misogynist, not racist, not bigots". "Who's going to talk about what it means to build a Florida that makes room for all of us and not just some of us". DeSantis clearly was saying that voters shouldn't mess with the success Florida is experiencing under Gov. Scott, a conservative, by electing a candidate with a socialist agenda.

Will this new approach win competitive races for Democratic candidates around the country?

An educator and veteran, Garcia has called for tuition-free college and reform of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Progressives believe that clarity will energize voters who are not just upset with Trump but who are ready for a new politics.

Rodgers, 34, will likely remain in Green Bay (barring an unforseen trade) until the end of his career with the new deal. Once more, this contract should be filed under the market-setting and vault-busting category.

President Trump, who supported DeSantis during the primary, congratulated him and told him he has nothing to worry about come November. On Tuesday, after clinching the GOP nomination, DeSantis credited the President for helping boost his candidacy. It has nearly an equal number of registered Democrats and Republicans.

The Democratic nominee for governor also addressed both Trump and DeSantis calling him a socialist. The outgoing Governor Rick Scott, also a Republican, won his primary to challenge the incumbent Senator Bill Nelson (D-Florida) in November. Afterward, he was mobbed by people who wanted to take selfies with the candidate, and his campaign staff kept pushing to get him back on the campaign bus to his next event. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the unsuccessful candidate for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

Marquez Peterson is the CEO of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber.

DeSantis said Gillum was an "articulate spokesman" for "far left views".

Graham and Levine later were challenged with the entrance in the race of Greene, a brash Democrat who made a failed U.S. Senate bid in 2010.

She will square off against Republican Maria Elvira Salazar, a Spanish-language television journalist. Both Florida and Georgia appear to be ideal stand-ins for a national contest two years from now that will probably pit Trump against what will not only likely be a liberal but also possibly a woman and/or a minority - especially if Democrats pick a relative newcomer like Sens.

Salazar's background, however, could help Republicans hold onto the seat in a district where about three-fourths of the population is Hispanic but which favored Hillary Clinton by almost 20 percentage points in the 2016 presidential election.
