Today on Context Florida:

Whether you love him or hate him (and there really is no in-between), Steven Kurlander says one has to admit Donald Trump has established a personal brand and fortune by being extremely brash, creative, and smart: all with a very flippant attitude. Now with Trump’s run for the White House, he is redefining American politics in terms of translating his brash, contentious style into what may be an unbeatable methodology of capturing the hearts and minds of disgruntled American voters.

In response to the recent video smear campaign aimed at discrediting Planned Parenthood, Mark Ferrulo reports that 39 Florida organizations representing doctors, working families, students, women’s advocates, retirees and religious leaders, and with supporters stretching from Key West to Pensacola, have stood up for the immense contribution Planned Parenthood has made toward expanding and protecting reproductive health care access in Florida.

A.G. Gancarski notes that Nassau County Republican Wesley Forrest White, the Fourth Judicial Circuit State Attorney candidate, has a steep hill to climb if he hopes to knock off current and perhaps perpetual State Attorney Angela Corey. It’s hard out there for an intraparty challenger, especially when, as White says, defense lawyers and others are scared to give him money because they don’t want to cross Corey.
