    In the first poll since Hurricane Michael devastated the Panhandle — and changed the course of state politics — the race for Florida Governor is virtually tied. Twenty days before Election Day, Democrat Andrew Gillum is at 47 percent, while Republican Ron DeSantis is at 46. However, among those who say they have already voted, DeSantis is at 49 percent, while Gillum is at 45 percent. A similar scenario is set up for Florida’s U.S. Senate race — heading into the stretch in dead-heat fashion, according to the new survey by St. Pete Polls. Republican Gov. Rick Scott has a...
  • Sen. Nelson Sends Hurricane Donors To Democrat Fundraising Site

    10/15/2018 5:47:21 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 27 replies
    It’s oft been said lately that Democrats appear willing to do anything to win. Democratic Florida Sen. Bill Nelson, in a tough re-election battle against Republican Florida Gov. Rick Scott, is taking that growing truism to heart — and to a new low. Playing on Floridians’ and other Americans’ natural desire to help those in desperate need, Nelson tweeted Friday a pitch for helping people in the devastated Panhandle area of Florida and a link to where they can donate: “The devastation from #HurricaneMichael is widespread across the Panhandle and Big Bend in Florida. Anything you can give to these...
  • Busted: Democrat Senate Candidate’s ‘Hurricane Relief’ Link Re-Directs to Democrat Fundraising Page

    A Florida Democrat running for U.S. Senate was busted Thursday morning for apparently masquerading a Hurricane Michael donation link as a Democrat fundraising tool. “Speaking of @NelsonForSenate fundraising during hurricane, this is interesting: The link his campaign posted to raise money for disaster relief efforts takes you to ActBlue, the Democrat’s fundraising engine. Building donor list through hurricane relief contributions? #FLSen,” according to Free Beacon’s Brent Scher.
  • Democrat, Senator, Bill Nelson is supporting Democrat, Andrew Gillum for Florida Governor?

    Does anyone know if Democrat, Senator, Bill Nelson is actively supporting and campaigning for Democrat, Mayor, Andrew Gillum in the Florida Governor race? Gillum, who is a known Progressive, Socialist, Communist, Racist, Jew & Israel Hater, Democrat who, IMHO, is the not best place for Senator, Nelson to hang his hat on, during his very close and tight campaign against, current Florida Governor, Republican, Rick Scott. Any inputs, one way or the other. Go Scott, Go DeSantis, Go, Mast (18thFLCD), Go GOP, Go, GPTV, Go Trumpo MEGA rallies, Go, MAGA!!!

    WHOG ^ | Oct 9, 2018
    Tallahassee, FL – A who's who of conservative judges have lined up to try to join the Florida Supreme Court as Governor Rick Scott fights to appoint replacements for three justices whose retirements coincide with the end of his final term in January. The list of more than 40 candidates who filed applications before a Monday deadline includes former Republican lawmakers and state appeals-court judges appointed by Scott during his eight years in office. Scott, who is trying to unseat incumbent U.S. Senator Bill Nelson in November and is barred from seeking a third term as governor, maintains that he...

    The Politico ^ | September 25, 2018 | Burgess Everett and Elana Schor
    Democratic leaders need a unified caucus to put maximum pressure on a handful of holdout Republicans. Democrats have all the cover they need to vote in lockstep against Brett Kavanaugh. But a half-dozen of them have refused to go there, even after the pair of sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee. Democratic insiders are feeling more bullish than ever that the party’s 49 caucus members ultimately will oppose Kavanaugh. Yet the undeclared bloc of Democratic senators could be a problem for Democratic leaders, who want to put the weight of the nomination entirely on a handful of holdout...
  • It's Socialism vs. Trump after Massive Turnout In Florida’s Tuesday Primary

    08/29/2018 8:50:10 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 30 replies
    Florida is the largest swing state in the union and possibly the most demographically representative with transplants from the Northeast and Midwest, along with natives of the South. Plus it’s the third largest state after California and Texas, which are not as representative. That makes the results of Tuesday’s primaries so intriguing to the tea-leaf reading set. In this case we can see some real actual trends, because it is not just one special election that both sides were trying to make into a national referendum — it’s a mini three-quarters of America. One big takeaway: The establishment, “centrist” portions...
  • Dem hopes for senate takeover fade as Nelson stumbles in Florida

    08/27/2018 7:43:16 AM PDT · by rktman · 55 replies ^ | 8/27/2018 | Rick Moran
    Democrats who still hold out hope for a takeover of the senate in November are fretting about the prospects of one of their most vulnerable incumbents. Senator Bill Nelson is being outspent, out manuevered, and out classed in his race to keep his Florida senate seat blue. His opponent, Governor Rick Scott, has been all over the state, contrasting his vigorous campaign with that of the 75 year old Nelson. Any hopes of Democrats taking over the senate hinge on them holding seats in states won by Trump in 2016. All are locked in tight races with excellent GOP challengers....

    Here is Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida, speaking to a group of people about his claim that Russian Operatives had gotten into Florida’s Election System ahead of the 2018 Midterms. As he talks, it becomes clear Nelson says, “I assume,” regarding what the Russians actually did, and he looks very startled at the end to find out he is being recorded! . . . .

    Hot Air / Journal of American Greatness ^ | 10 Aug 2018 | Michael Walsh
    The #NeverTrumpumpkins define themselves by their visceral distaste for the president. He offends their fastidious sensibilities, outrages them with his unfiltered Twitter musings, and violates their sense of propriety with his secular hedonism and sheer joy in his own vulgarity. That he’s also delivering the most conservative administration in history is, to them, beside the point—because Trump neither represents nor embodies “movement” conservatism. And therein, for them, lies the problem. Movements are, almost by definition, attractive to the young and the emotionally immature. Followers love to follow; even more, they love to memorize catechisms and rote talking points, which they...

    Floridians go to the polls for their midterm primaries in two weeks, and the electorate looks surprisingly the same as it did two or four years ago. Despite predictions of a “blue wave” in this purple state based on reaction to Donald Trump and the disaster response in Puerto Rico, Democrats didn’t make any gains in their share of the electorate. In fact, as Politico’s Marc Caputo reports, they lost ground: Last week we wondered “where’s the blue wave?” when Democratic absentee ballot returns weren’t as proportionately high as they were at this time of the election in 2014, the...

    The Washington Times ^ | August 13, 2018 | James Varney
    With early voting beginning Monday in some Florida counties, the Senate race there was jolted as Republican Gov. Rick Scott kept up the pressure on Sen. Bill Nelson’s thus far unsubstantiated claims that Russian operatives have already compromised Florida elections. In the hotly contested race, Democratic Sen. Nelson’s comments seemed to dovetail with the narrative of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections —international shenanigans many in the American intelligence community have concluded were real. But Mr. Nelson’s pointed remarks triggered a storm of protest not only from his Republican challenger, Mr. Scott, but from other Florida officials, too. Mr....

    Russian operatives have "penetrated" some of Florida's voter registration systems ahead of the 2018 midterms, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson said Wednesday, adding new urgency to concerns about hacking. The state, however, said it has received "zero information" supporting his claim. "They have already penetrated certain counties in the state and they now have free rein to move about," Nelson told the Tampa Bay Times before a campaign event in Tampa. He said something similar a day earlier in Tallahassee but declined to elaborate. "That's classified," the Democrat said Tuesday. He is facing a re-election challenge in November from Gov. Rick...

    Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) is pushing to ban guns that have been illegal since the 1988 passage of the Undetectable Firearms Act. He is seeking to ban them all over again as part of the Democrat onslaught against 3D gun print files. The Miami Herald quotes Nelson saying, “Just think of the billions of dollars we spend trying to protect national security. And now, suddenly there is going to be published on the internet the plans for making a gun that can evade the detection systems in airports and seaports and all of these governmental buildings as well as some...

    On Tuesday, Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategies released its latest survey on the upcoming U.S. Senate race between Gov. Rick Scott (R-FL) and incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL). According to the poll conducted July 24-25 of 625 registered Florida voters, Scott has 47-44 percent lead over Nelson, which is a shift from a poll conducted in February when Nelson was up 45-44 percent. The Mason-Dixon poll is in line with many other recent polls that also show Scott with a slight edge over Nelson. According to the Real Clear Politics polling average of the race, Nelson is up 1.2 percent.

  • Red State Democrats Really, REALLY Don't Want To Discuss SCOTUS Pick

    Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going to be a weeks-long torment for some on the Hill—and I’m talking about red state Democrats. Senate Republican moderates Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski have been very receptive to Kavanaugh’s nomination, easing pressure from the right that they could sink this SCOTUS nominee if they defect. That could be the case, but for now, pressure has ramped up on Sens. Jon Tester (D-MT), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), and maybe Bill Nelson (D-FL). Nelson needs help. Republican Gov. Rick Scott is outworking him on Hispanic outreach, and he’s beating Nelson...

    Florida is where the Republicans can pick up a Senate seat. Incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson, who’s been elected three times, is facing something he’s never experienced in his past elections: a solid candidate. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who is term-limited, has jumped into the ring. He has the money. He has the political acumen. He’s outworking Nelson—and it’s showing. Scott now leads Nelson by five points (via Tampa Bay Times): A new CBS News poll of Florida's Senate race shows Gov. Rick Scott with a 5-point advantage over Sen. Bill Nelson, 46-41 percent, in a survey with a margin of...
