Florida State Senate Races. By Geniusofdespair

Qualifying was over at NOON today.  Here is who qualified as on 3 pm.

Bruce Kaplan? Now there is a name from the past in District 38. He was a Miami Dade County Commissioner forced to resign if it is the same guy.  Michael Gongora is also in. They shouldn't be in this race.

The DEMS actually found a REAL candidate to run against Aniterre Flores: Debbie Mucarsel-Powell from Pinecrest.  They also found someone to run against Rene Garcia.

Debbie Mucarsel-Powell
Mucarsel-Powell was named senior vice president of development at Jackson Health Foundation in November 2014. Before that, she spent more than eight years working at Florida International University -- first as director of development from 2003-2007, then as associate vice president for advancement for FIU's Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine from 2007 to July 2011.

Why do you say that Michael Gongora should not be in this District 38 race?? We voters in his district want to know why you feel this way about an exceptional candidate. DMD (Miami Beach)

I don't know Debbie Mucarsel-Powell all to well but she seems to be an excellent candidate to go up against Flores. Having her run for district 38 and having Andrew Korge run for district 40 against Frank Artiles seems like a much better strategy. It seems like everything is falling into place just fine.

That is smart to be N P A. He will get a better chance against Daphne. Michael? Because I can count. He is guaranteeing a win for Campbell, a formidable absentee ballot collector. There are just too many in this race.

Korge on his 4th race in 12 months offers $25k to Bullard to switch to a district outside his home region. What's the matter with that boy? He should run for Palmetto Bay council before trying to upend a pair of incumbents at the State level. Compare this game of musical chairs with the discipline of the Florida Republicans who are standing behind their incumbents, and even stepping out of Marco's way. Somebody please hand a baseball bat to Juan Cuba and show him how to use it.

Korge ran for Senate district 35, then the map completely disappeared. Then he filed for Senate District 39. Unfortunately the party and the unions cut a deal with Anitere Flores to make sure she got reelected. Korge was faced with getting outspent 6 to 1 because the Florida Democratic Party abandoned him. This is untenable. After this reality set in - Korge switched to District 40.

Insofar as the 25k - bullard called and texted korge to ask korge to raise money for him. Bullard is a liar and a typical politician who will say and do anything to get reelected.
This is a sophisticated political attack meant to smear the front runner in District 40. You fell for it. incidentally, the article first appeared in the sunshine state news, a right wing extremist website. And Leslie Wimes was the source - she is a republican hack paid to destroy non african american democrats.
