This is why Florida Democrats are losers [View all]

Scott Maxwell
August 4, 2017

Right now, there’s a flurry of political activity in western Orange County.

With a special legislative election afoot, four Republicans are running vigorous campaigns, debating conservative ideas and collecting hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign cash in House District 44, which envelops Disney, Winter Garden, Dr. Phillips and west Orlando.

So, the Republicans are all in.

One the other side of the aisle is a single Democratic candidate without much name ID, support or money. As of his last report, he had raised $3,131 … with most of that coming from the candidate’s own pocket.

All this in a district that strongly supported Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump just nine months ago — about 28,000 votes to 22,000.

This, my friends, is why Democrats are chronic losers in this state … because they don’t compete.
