Did I read right that Rick Scott wants 21 to buy a gun?

More than that.

More RO's, mandate 1 for every 1k students.
No armed faculty
Better technology and security at perimeters of schools
Some stuff around mental health and taking firearms and/or added restrictions.

It's a start...

What would you say is the most important thing the next Governor of the state should address first regardless of who it is?

I haven't been back long enough to have a solid opinion on this.

Rick Scott vs. Bill Nelson.

Doesn't exactly stir the soul, does it?

No, and Rick Scott will probably win because this state loves criminals.

I don't know anything about either of these guys as I don't live in Florida. What are their platforms?

Bill Nelson is a former Astronaut and the incumbent. He's a blue dog Democrat which means he's left of Marco Rubio, but not by much. Nelson's platform is to stay in the Senate.

Rick Scott is the current governor, carpetbagger, and living embodiment of Skeletor. His platform is to make a fuck-ton of money.

Bill Nelson and Rick Scott are polling pretty tight with Nelson up 1.4

Scott has been blasting Nelson with attack ads up here and I wish I could post them because one of them I think will be very effective. It's the one with all the folks on the street repeating talking points with the most salient of them being "It's time for Bill Nelson to come home" and the dumbest being one that suggests that Pelosi has a huge influence on him (Which makes zero sense since Nelson is in the Senate and Pelosi is in the House)

Too close to call. obviously I'd like to see Rick Scott shot out of a cannon. Especially with this bullshit ad.




Republican primary for Governor:

Desantis has a 1 point lead over Adam Putnam who I have a bone to pick with in this ad.

This cheesedick just admitted to inheriting 5 generations of farm wealth (before getting elected to the legislature at 22 years old)and then has the balls to tell Floridians he knows what hard work is. Still, I bet this hits his audience right in the Fox News feels.

No, I don't boycott Publix because they gave Putnam $670,000. I had lunch there today. If I had to pick a Republican in this race, I'd be hard pressed to give Putnam a nod. Especially with the attack ad he's running up here on Desantis from the right of all places suggesting he voted for Amnesty. Isn't Desantis out there with my idiot congressman blabbering nonsense on Fox every night?


Democrat primary for Governor:
Phil Levine also has a margin of error lead (1-2 points) over Gwen Graham and Talahassee mayor Andrew Gillum who finally got into the race (polling wise) I've seen very few ads up here in the Trumpistan panhandle, but so far, I like Levine and would consider Gillum. Graham is a little too to the right for my liking and seems in the Hillary mold at first glance. for example she's made no comment about cannabis and is choosing to focus her campaign on the children. Zzzzzzzzzz


Started to write a thing on Levine and what I like about him, but it was turning into a stump speech and we can wait for the general for that. I just wanted to start talking about these campaigns.

For any Florida voters interested there is a debate tonight in the Florida GOP governors race between Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis.

It's a 1 hour debate that starts at 6:30pm and will be aired on FoxNews and FN radio.
