Will FL Democrats finally be able to break through and make major legislative gains? [View all]

For over 20 years FL has been ruled by Republicans. The legislature and the governorís office have been owned by the GOP since the 1990s.

But Democrats running for the legislature should tie the terrible response by DeSantis to all GOP candidates for local and state office.

The unemployment compensation website is a disaster and that will impact hundreds of thousands of workers.

The slow response by the state government to this pandemic has been lackluster at best. Not shutting down beaches, scenes of crowded beaches, should be in every campaign commercial.

FL Dem candidates need to take the lead NOW and start wearing homemade face masks in public. They ought to act NOW and start calling for protections to our public health and public schools. Paint the GOP as slaves to corporate America because there will be revenue shortfalls and the GOP WILL balance the budget on the backs of the poor and middle class. The FL Dems need to call for an expansion of Medicaid.

In short, FL Dems are being handed the 2020 election on a silver platter. They canít squander it or we will have another decade of GOP rule after gerrymandering.
