For the governor and most other races, the choices are quite a bit easier and more clear. For governor, we have US Congressman Ron DeSantis against Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum. Gillum, who has been under a cloud from an FBI investigation for corruption, is promising to bankrupt the state with Free Everything For Everyone, following the brilliant political philosophy of rising Party star Alexandria Occasional Cortex. Not to mention being endorsed by Bernie Sanders. DeSantis, should be running a large margin over Gillum but has been running a campaign apparently managed by Gonzo from the Muppets or somebody with less grasp on reality. Somebody who thinks campaign ads for a candidate for the chief executive officer of the fifth largest state in the country should show the CEO teaching his small children how to parrot president Trump.
The worst race is we choose our US senator between incumbent Bill "Bill" Nelson, of the Evil Party, who has been a reliable vote for Nancy Peloski (or whomever the left's Glorious Leader happens to be) and Rick "Voldemort" Scott of the Stupid Party. Scott, of course, was so stupid that he enacted all of the Evil Party's gun control agenda for them after the Parkland shooting, so that they didn't have to take the blowback from constituents.
The legislation was celebrated as "gun control" by Democrats and the mainstream media (pardon my redundancy), and they should have celebrated it. With one mass shooting, a mere 17 kids, they got the Republicans to enact their policies for them. As always, the Republicans were beaten badly because the Dems have a strategy and work it relentlessly. While Republicans go along complacently, the Dems hire organizers who work for years in preparation for the times they can push their agenda hard, and in this case, they didn't even need to push their agenda. They didn't have to do a thing except propose amendments that make them look good to their base.
As a second amendment voter, I don't have someone to support. As a small government guy, it leans Rick Scott. Bill Nelson has been reliably on the side of big government as far as I can recall - I wrote a hypothetical response to one of his "constituent update" emails in 2011, pointing out the utter bullcrap he was spreading. Farther back, I remember the first letter I wrote to an elected official was to Nelson asking he not vote for the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986. And I recall his terse brush off that came long after he voted for the bill. As an administrator, Scott performed well. Jeb Bush was excellent and I'm not sure there was much of a step down when Scott took the lead. If you compare how Florida responds to hurricanes vs. how Louisiana responded to Katrina, it's like comparing DEVGRU to the Keystone Kops. Reliably evil party strongholds respond like Louisiana to Katrina or Puerto Rico to Maria.
Nicole "Nikki" Fried, Evil Party candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture, will make the focus of her administration pushing medical marijuana and opposing the NRA. I don't think her office has anything in particular to do with the state's medical marijuana law passed two years ago, but the office does manage the concealed carry licenses for the state. The last thing we need is someone to screw that up. She's running against an NRA endorsed opponent Matt Caldwell. Neither of them is a lifetime farmer, but the agency does much more than that.
There has been a lot of
You just went full retard, Gillum. Never go full retard.
