in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Much has been said about how the intensity of emotions regarding Hurricane Irma brought with it a spirit of togetherness among Floridians who got through the storm, but can that spirit pervade the state Legislature? There’s certainly a sense of bipartisanship after House Speaker Richard Corcoran announced that he was forming the Select Committee on Hurricane Response and Preparedness. “It is my sincere hope that the Select Committee on Hurricane Response and Preparedness will be a good-faith, bipartisan effort at…

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee is once again targeting Gov. Rick Scott over his support of the Republican health care agenda.

Mitch Perry Report for 10.27.16 – Marco Rubio and Patrick Murphy battle it one last time

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

So much in the news today to discuss, but let’s start (and end) with a review of last night’s debate between Marco Rubio and Patrick Murphy. If you were scoring at home (congratulations if you were, to paraphrase Keith Olbermann from his ESPN days), you might have had Rubio up by a few points at the end, but like the first debate, it was relatively competitive throughout. Rubio has a lot more experience on the debate stage, which is why Murphy should have debated Pam Keith and…

in Peter/Top Headlines by

Up until a few weeks ago, one could argue that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee had been doing a reasonably good job in the Sunshine State. One could even make the point that in a presidential year (one most likely to bring a D pickup) the DSCC had positioned themselves pretty well to take back Marco Rubio’s seat.

Marco Rubio says he will spend this weekend consulting with his family about running for again his U.S. Senate seat – and the Democratic Party appears more than ready to attack him if he does. The Democratic Senate Senatorial Campaign Committee released a digital ad that is a sneak preview of the assault they’re prepared to deliver to the Florida Senator if indeed, he announces that he will run again for his seat this fall. The ad revisits a major complaint…

U.S. Senate tables turn against Florida Democrats

in Statewide/Top Headlines by

In an ironic reversal of fortune, a tough and ideological primary process is threatening to divide Democrats as they pursue swing Senate seats like that one abdicated by U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio in 2016, writes Alex Roarty in National Journal. In a quartet of key battlegrounds, Democrats are bracing for bitter primaries that party leaders worry will complicate their hopes of retaking a Senate majority. The latest showdown was set Tuesday, when a former top aide to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf,…
