Redistricting Created a Clusterfuck for the Democratic Party in Miami Dade County. by Geniusofdespair
The Democratic party in the Miami Dade County State Senate races is one big, gigantic, colossal mess: a Clusterfuck of epic proportions.
The Democrat that votes with the Republican's (is anti-choice and so ethically challenged I am surprised she is not in jail) Daphne Campbell will probably win. So that is a lost seat. She might as well run as a Republican. It all started when Gwen Margolis ran another term. Other qualified Democrats stayed out of the District 38 race in deference to Gwen. A guy named Jason Pizzo jumped in not aware or not caring about what had transpired in that race -- the respect for the incumbent. What do you expect from a Newbie. Now with the entrance of Kevin Burns, the race in District 38 is all but Daphne's. Either Pizzo or Burns needs to drop out. Talk to each other.
District 38 is Whites : 68,221, Blacks: 72,027, Hispanics: 70,415 but that is all registered voters. Traditionally 50% of the super-voters are Black but that doesn't mean just Haitian. A strong African American - Real Democrat not a poser like Daphne - could still jump in and win. No one in their right mind would vote for Daphne if they knew about her. They would all vote for Phillip Brutus, the real Haitian Democrat in the race. Then life would be good.
Oscar Braynon will win as no one is running against him -- the rest will most probably go down in flames. Even the best candidate in Miami Dade County: Jose Javier Rodriguez -- will have his work cut out for him with the now "magically" moderate Miguel Diaz De La Portilla. Dwight Bullard's district has changed dramatically and he is not the best fundraiser. Dwight get on the phone and ask for money. TODAY! His seat is in trouble. Even Democrat Ana Rivas Logan jumped in to unseat the longtime Bullard franchise in State Government.
The party has no direction. They are even going to leave Antiere unopposed - I am told - in a Democratic leaning district because of some reasons I can't talk about like rumors of an affair. Don't really believe that. I am hearing that Andrew Korge is going to exit that race soon. Don't know what he is doing as he hasn't answered my calls and has yet to listen to anything I have told him.
Mostly I see a bunch of candidates that will just not listen. They think they have all the answers. Well, good. Go on your stupid merry way and...lose. Get a fucking campaign manager all of you.
As a Republican, I am appalled at how stupid this OTHER party is, when they SHOULD be a shoe-in at the general election. No one much is raising money. It is just in tattered ruins here. They are going to lose in the primary, because they are using no strategy whatsoever. Someone from the National Party: Get down to Miami and help.
I am pretty sure qualifying is closed Noon, June 24th so it will most probably be the worst Senate contest in history for the Democrats here in Miami. I am praying there is a miracle in the next 3 1/2 days. Unless something horrible happens to Daphne Campbell, I will be represented by the worst Democrat ever. Yes I was happy when Scalia died. I am not above that. And I know I will have no Democratic friends after posting this blog. But Fuck it. Someone has to say it.
