DeSantis Rising?

JUICE—The Latest Q Poll shows that Gov. Ron DeSantis has regained the support he lost with Floridians as of last July. This loss was a result of the pandemic, even as Democrats continue to blame him for the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.

Shhh! Don’t tell Democrats about this poll. READ MORE

 

Rubio Rising?

The same poll also shows Senator Marco Rubio leading Rep. Val Demings in the 2022 midterm Senate Race. It’s still very early in the contest and campaigning hasn’t really started.

This race will boil down to voting records.

Demings has voted with self-styled Socialist Democrats, while Sen. Rubio has not, and has more of a middle-of-the-road record.

The issue Rubio may have is that there are some Republicans who still think he didn’t support former President Donald Trump enough when he was in office. Trump have Rubio a full-throated endorsement a couple of months ago. READ MORE

 

Stepping Up—Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) has unanimously named Brewster Bevis as its new president effective. The group’s internal lobbyist will succeed long-time President Tom Feeney beginning January 1, 2022.

 

Total D-Bag Move

Republican Congressional candidate Greg Musselwhite recently attacked his primary opponent Jason Mariner when he entered the race by posting his mugshot and prison record.

When he was called out for posting it on his social media, Musselwhite decided to remove the post, but only after giving a half-baked, unprepared, and outright lame answer when asked why he did it.   READ MORE

 

Debbie Wasserman Schultz-Callousness or incompetence, whatever the reason, @GovRonDeSantis is 'leaving money on the table' that can feed Florida children, and it's inexcusable.

Marco Rubio-The @StateDept admits 4,100 Americans remaining in Kabul alone but claim that some of them are deciding not to leave This is a lie Taliban isn’t allowing American women through their checkpoints without a male guardian & are blocking non-citizen family members of U.S. citizens

Nikki Fried-Nobody trusts you anymore, Ron. And attacking the President for you not doing your job isn’t helping.

Jimmy Patronis-As we witness the chaotic exit from Afghanistan, my thoughts are with Florida’s firefighters who also proudly served our country. Just like in Surfside, the fire service community has come together to ensure these heroes have mental health support available in times of crisis.

Senator Jason Pizzo-For those of us (legislators, staff and families of incarcerated persons) who make frequent visits, and consistently advocate for a modern @FL_Corrections system - one which provides edu/voc opportunities and adequate staffing resources - this is an important (and overdue) visit.

AG Ashley Moody-It is evident that Biden’s dismantling of immigration policies that were working has been disastrous for our border and country. Thankfully, our Supreme Court has found his conduct unlawful and demands reinstatement of the Remain in Mexico policy.

Blaise Ingoglia-This isn’t a little over the top…it’s A LOT over the top, and quite frankly, disgusting and sexist. @AndyMarlette should be ashamed of himself. You crossed a line here.
