Murphy is Out. Demings Up On Deck

Rep. Stephanie Murphy has decided not to run against Senator Marco Rubio in the 2022 midterm elections and will seek reelection to her Central Florida congressional seat.

Rep. Murphy would have proven to be a formidable challenger but could a possible grueling primary race against potential senatorial candidates Rep. Val Demings have dissuaded Murphy from running?

We may never know, but how things are with Florida Democrats, Murphy would have to run to the Left of Demings and shed her “Blue Dog” and centrist bona fides to win the Democratic nomination.

Demings on the other hand was never a centrist. Now we wait for Demings next move. When will she announce? READ MORE

Big Ron and Big Tech: A Match Made in Hell

Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed into law a bill that will punish Big Tech companies for de-platforming candidates for office. Democrats say that it will be challenged in the courts, DeSantis says bring it on. Florida becomes the first state in the country to stick it to social media giants that are now banning individuals from their respective platforms for sneezing in the wrong directions. Now they face big daily fines if they continue their shady practices. READ MORE

NO Money for you

DeSantis is also on record saying that he and the GOP-led legislature will look to defund the controversial and racist “Critical Race Theory” that school boards across the country are using to indoctrinate school children. READ MORE


Rick Scott @SenRickScott-Flying over the border doesn’t count.@VP & @POTUS need to acknowledge their open border & amnesty policies have failed, creating a humanitarian & national security crisis. It's time to protect Americans & secure the border NOW

Rep. Darren Soto @RepDarrenSot0-Most of our Fla Congressional Delegation is coming together to permanently ban Fla offshore oil drilling. Together we will protect our environment, our tourism & agriculture economy & #ActOnClimate!

Rep. Omari Hardy @OmariJHardy-It's hard not be angry at fainthearted politicians who can't stand by the idea that no one should have to go into debt to get an education.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz @DWStweets-0Like Rick Scott before him, @GovRonDeSantis is leaving federal dollars on the table & letting Floridians suffer just to make a political point & get airtime on Fox News. It's a cruel, objectively stupid slap in the face to every Floridian who is still out there struggling.
