Show Me the Money!

When it comes to campaigning, the old saying “money talks bullsh-t walks” applies, and right now it appears that Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried’s gubernatorial campaign is neck-deep in excrement.

Fried’s latest $200K fundraising efforts have been dwarfed by the millions both Gov. Ron DeSantis and Rep. Charlie Crist have raised in their 2022 gubernatorial campaign efforts.

It’s still very early in the race and Fried is very popular among Democrats, but if she continues to show these kinds of paltry fundraising numbers, Fried could very well be singing her own rendition of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way.”

Chaingang Charlie Evolves into ‘Woke’ Charlie

The onetime pro-life, pro-gun, pro-family, and anti-tax Crist has swapped out his Conservative bona fides with the more nuanced ‘woke’ culture political stance. READ MORE 

Oh, and Democrats are lining up to replace Rep. Crist in Congress. Joining Reps. Eric Lynn and Ben Diamond in announcing her intentions to seek Crist’s congressional seat, openly gay Rep. Michele Raynor.

Rep. Raynor hasn’t actually announced yet, but it’s going to happen.

Republican Anna Paulina Luna, who ran and lost to Crist in the 2020 presidential general election has already announced her 2022 campaign.

With this congressional seat expected to be drawn more in favor of the GOP, more Republicans could jump into the race, including Speaker Chris Sprowls.

 

 

Lauren Book@Book4Senate-I try my best to teach my children all about life, but really they are the ones teaching what life is all about… Today they reminded me about patience, kindness, and having fun!

Jason Pizzo @senpizzo-Quite an honor, to be selected as the @FOPFL Senate Legislator of the Year. These are challenging times, and as Chair of @FLSenate Criminal Justice, I shall continue to advocate for advancing policy that objectively creates greater public safety. We all get there, together.

Rep. Anna V. Eskamani @AnnaForFlorida-June is also #ImmigrantHeritageMonthu! I’ll be sharing photos thru-out this month of my immigrant family’s history. This is a photo from Iran of my grandmother (who I call mother-joon), my grandfather (who passed away before I could meet him) & my Mom when she was just a toddler.

Rep. Val Demings @RepValDemings-Some of our politicians are not living up to their promises. Pulse survivors and loved ones are being left behind. I call on everyone reading this to speak up and support our community.
