Mast could face tough re-election because of his support for a gun ban

350

South Florida’s “drug czar” and Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg has endorsed Lauren Baer in her congressional race to unseat freshman U.S. Rep. Brian Mast (R).

In a campaign statement, Baer posted Aronberg’s endorsement:

“Our community is facing many challenges. From the opioid epidemic to threats to our environment, we need a representative in Washington who will seek common sense solutions — and actually accomplish them. I am proud to endorse Lauren Baer, who has the experience of bringing people together in these divisive political times.”

Mast faces a primary race, and should win re-election, but all bets are off in the general election where the U.S. Army veteran could face a tougher challenge.

Mast’s biggest challenge could be energizing his 2nd Amendment base of support, who feel betrayed after the freshman congressman called for a ban on assault weapons after the Parkland school shooting.

Some of Mast’s grassroots supports have even gone as far as to try to field a primary challenger against him.

On the Democratic side, Baer must first get past Navy veteran Pam Keith before she can take on Mast.
