Florida Politics' Daily Political Read

May 18, 2021

Sorry for the little “JUICE” hiatus, but family pressure to take a much-needed vacation had to be addressed. Let me just say, Yellowstone, The Grand Tetons, and the Rockies are unbelievable in May. Bears are growling, wolves are howling, and the Bison are roaming.

Altogether, “Home, home on the range, where the dear and the antelope play. Where seldom is heard…”

Rolling the Dice

Now, today is the first day of the special session to address gambling. Here is what to expect:

Democrats will complain and use the next couple of days to pontificate for political gain

Republicans will do the same, and will eventually pass the gambling measure(s).


Broward County GOP Fiasco

It’s like clockwork for the embattled Broward GOP. This group of malcontents always devise a way to screw the pooch, embarrass themselves, embarrass the state party, and embarrass Gov. Ron DeSantis.

Conservative Reps. Greg Steube and Michael Waltz have backed out of an event with Gen. Michael Flynn because the state committeewoman appears to have misrepresented her event.

Steube and Waltz committed, but House Ethics said it was a big No-No. They are out, and it could get worse in the coming days as a bombshell of a story is brewing and could come to light later this week. MUST-READ


Democrats and Their Socialist Problem

No matter how much Sen. Annette Taddeo and other Florida Democrats try to convince voters that Republicans are lying about Socialism within the Democratic Party, when you have members admitting they are socialists, it's pretty hard to shake that Red Monkey off your back. MUST-READ

Meet Sen. Lauren Book?

Meet Sen. Jason Pizzo?



Commissioner Nikki Fried @NikkiFriedFL-Human rights are universal - homophobia, transphobia and biphobia have no place in this world.

AG Ashley Moody @AGAshleyMoody-May is National #ElderLaw Month and National #OlderAmericansMonth, a reminder that we must continue to work to protect the more than 5 million seniors who call Florida home.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz @RepDWStweets-House Democrats will not stop fighting until the promise of #BrownvBoard is a reality for every American. #ForThePeople Every child must have an equal chance at success.

Rep. Matt Gaetz @RepMattGaetz-Veterans deserve to know that COVID funds went to their care and wellbeing. I will never stop fighting for government accountability for veterans and tonight I proudly voted for HR 2911, the VA Transparency and Trust Act.

Rep. Omari Hardy @OmariJHardy-Workers haven't gotten a real raise since the '70s. That's b/c our economy rewards the rich for exploiting the working-class. So if a $15 min. wage wreaks havoc on employers, it's only b/c the status quo of poverty wages has been wreaking havoc on working-class ppl for decades.

Rep. Anthony Sabatini @AnthonySabatini-I’ve received questions about my position on the Bills to be presented during FL’s special legislative session on gambling this week. Final votes will be determined by testimony, but here’s where I’m leaning right now:

HB1 - NO

HB3 - NO


HB7 - Maybe

HB9 - NO

HB11 - NO

Senator Lori Berman @loriberman-I #StandWithIsrael and support their right of self-defense in accordance with international law. There can be no conflation between Israel’s defensive targeting of strategic Hamas launch sites and Hamas’ indiscriminate rocket fire at civilians.
