I bet you could get rich selling bumperstickers that say “Not my governor” and “Not my senator”. The Left likes to advertise the fact that they back losers.

I think its done because it was going to be investigated and exposed. The rats smelled the smoke, and decided to run.

Erm, aren’t all elections contentious? Or at least those involving two or more candidates?

And what does the AG commissioner certify?

That’s right...all of the concealed carry permits.

Don't think for a moment that this wasn't a backroom deal. The dems, knowing they would lose the governorship and senate seat anyway, said they would stop contesting the two if they got the ag post, and the GOP, knowing the ag post in FL is essentially a sinecure anyway, agreed in order to settle the deal. We got the atty gen post, which (unless Moody becomes a Sessions) can spend the next four years digging the Dem dirt on voter fraud, and ag will let the sugar lobby do what it's going to do anyway.

There better be something done about Democrat vote fraud between now and 2020 because with felons permitted to vote in 2020 Florida will be gone forever otherwise.

"The closest race was for the Cabinet position of agriculture commissioner. Democrat Nikki Fried defeated Republican state Rep. Matt Caldwell by 6,753 votes."

Dan Bongino says this was the target all along as ag commissioner issues concealed carry permits, gun control.

Gun owners and people who want to be gun owners need to stop voting Democrat.

Now both Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis should hit the fraudsters hard with a criminal investigation. They can’t let this fade away until it rears it’s ugly head again in 2020.

I would if I had any idea what an ag commissioner does. Does he commission agriculture? What’s that, and why should anyone care.

Administrating CCW permits is part of the position.
