Florida Democrats In Trouble

Florida Democrats In Trouble

We are less than two months from the November general election in Florida and win or lose it seems that Florida Democrats are in trouble. The lack of candidate development in the major parties is striking but more so with Democrats. The Florida Democrats have run poor Alex Sink to a nub. Sink has been the Florida Democrats “go to girl” over the past couple of election cycles.

Sink was the Democrat nominee to run against Rick Scott. After that grueling race Sink was pressed into service again to battle for US House against David Jolly. Sink had name recognition and the full support of Florida Democrats but came up short again. It was surprising that Sink Ran after the death of husband, Bill McBride, also a Democrat stalwart.

It is curious and should be disappointing to Florida Democrats that state party bosses have not spent any time, energy, or effort developing a candidate to compete against the incumbent governor, Republican Rick Scott. In fact, it should be heartbreaking that the best they could is run Republican retread Charlie Crist to face Scott for the state’s top spot. The same Charlie Crist that had is heart set on being John McCain’s running mate in 2008. Yes, the same Crist that ran for US Senate as first a Republican, then an independent. The same Crist that tried to get the Democrat, Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race. This is the standard bearer for the Democrat cause in the state Florida? Not good.

The Republican Party of Florida needs to take this as an object lesson on how not to run a state party. If Scott prevails in November is there anyone ready to take the helm from Rick Scott? Are the Republicans grooming candidates to step into the governor’s mansion? The lack of planning will put Republicans in a similar position in 2020. Both major parties have blown it when it comes to candidate development at the national level.

    Vote Adrian Wyllie for Governor! Also, Bill Wohlsifer for Attorney General and yes on 2.

    Why vote between 2 known liars? Florida, we are fortunate enough not to

    be stuck picking one liar or the other this time. We actually have an

    alternative. Take advantage of the opportunity. Adrian Wyllie deserves

    my vote. He is a honest average Floridian just as you and I , that is

    willing to stand up and do something for the interest of all of us here

    in Florida. The other candidates both Republican and Democrat are owned

    and controlled by special interest, like puppets and will lie to your

    face to gain your vote, then continue the same old agenda that we

    complain about year after year. Time to get off this merry-go-round,

    election after election, thinking it will be any different. Take a

    stand, vote for the candidate that loves this state and is willing to

    take time out of his life, effort and money to SERVE the people of

    Florida and stop voting for these ‘paid for’ career politicians that are

    only out for money and fame and have zero interest in us Floridians.

    Even if it’s just for honesty alone, vote for Adrian Wyllie instead of

    the other two (Scott/Crist) which are proven liars. The choice is yours

    and yours alone, if you want the same old corruption and slap in the

    face, go ahead and vote for one of the two puppets (Scott/Crist) OR do

    what is right for our (yours and your children’s) future and vote for

    Adrian Wyllie. Support him by donating to his campaign, spreading the

    word and contribute to the super brochure program which I think is very

    powerful. Visit his website today..,,.
