Parading Around at Gay Pride in Florida

Wilton Manors, arguably the hub for all things Gay in Florida, had their annual Stonewall Pride parade this past weekend in, and the who’s who of South Florida Democratic politics ‘came out’ for the event.

Everyone dressed up or down (however you want to look at it) for the parade.

The politician that stood out the most for his over-the-top outfit was none other than Jared Moskowitz, who is running for Congress in CD 23.

Moskowitz put the exclamation point after “Say Gay.”

Everyone at the parade—Rep. Val Demings, AG Commissioner Nikki Fried, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, State Sen. Lauren Book, Broward Sheriff  Gregory Tony, congressional candidate Hava Holzhauer ,and congressional candidate Ben Sorensen­­—had one form or another of Pride garb on, but Moskowitz took the cake.

Demings Gets Blitz Over Losing Firearm

Conservative journalist and congressional candidate Laura Loomer confronted Rep. Val Demings this past weekend in The Villages, demanding to know why the senatorial candidate was trying to compromise the 2nd Amendment. In typical Loomer style, the accusations against Demings flew the moment she got off her motorcycle.
Demings didn’t answer any of Loomer’s questions.
 The line of question stems back from when then-Chief of Police Demings had her agency-issued weapon stolen out of her vehicle. READ MORE

Senator Jason Pizzo- I am truly humbled to see that four years of our team’s hard work allowed us to be re-elected to the @FLSenate, without opposition. It’ll be Father’s Day with my boys, a few days in the District, and then I’m packing a bag and hitting the road to go help Dems win some races.

Shevrin “Shev” Jones-In this day 157 yrs ago, word FINALLY got back to over 250k slaves of Galveston,TX that they were free.

Today, let’s honor African Americans contributions to this country and its growth -helping to build this country brick by brick,even when rights & liberties were denied to us.

Matt Gaetz-Honestly, who let Joe Biden on a bicycle?

They don’t even let him in the real Oval Office.

Next time put him on a Peloton and tell him he’s riding a bike.

Byron Donalds-Stopping the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs through the southern border should be a priority for everyone. I am committed to border security. That is why this week I’m headed on my fourth trip to the border. It’s time we take action to keep our communities safe!

Mario Diaz-Balart-My questions to POTUS remain the same: How many children & women have to be exploited, smuggled, trafficked, & raped before the Biden Administration secures our southern border? How many young adults have to die of opioid overdoses before they address this catastrophe?

Charlie Crist-Since 2017, the Jacksonville Melanin Market has provided a platform to uplift Black-owned Florida businesses and fostered fellowship in the community. Today, it was my pleasure to attend the market’s wonderful Juneteenth celebration!
