EN ESPAÑOL: SPLC Launching 7-Figure Get Out The Vote Campaign In Florida, Report Says



On the heels of news that Republicans have a strong lead in vote-by-mail ballots in Florida, the Southern Poverty Law Center has launched a massive “get out the vote” campaign in the state.

Politico Florida reports that the SPLC is launching a $1.3 million program largely targeted at Spanish-speaking households in Tampa and Orlando.

In a press release, the SPLC laid out their plan in the swing state that is instrumental in the upcoming midterm elections:

Trending: Democrats Move to Ban Trump Supporters From Joining the Military and Holding Federal Jobs

“the SPLC will use direct mail, radio, television and digital advertising to inform Florida voters and motivate them to participate ahead of an election that will determine numerous amendments and revisions to the state’s constitution. The GOTV campaign is in addition to SPLC’s work in coalition with Floridians for a Fair Democracy on Amendment 4 and the League of Women Voters on Amendment 5. The SPLC also was co-counsel on the successful lawsuit to remove from the ballot Constitutional Revision 8, which would have allowed a massive charter school expansion at the expense of Florida’s traditional public schools.”

Florida has been thrust into the national spotlight due to multiple contentious state-wide races.

Most prominent of those is the race between Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis and Democrat Andrew Gillum, who are running for governor. Big League Politics has extensively covered that race.

DeSantis has the endorsement of President Donald Trump, while Gillum touts the endorsements of Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders, and has the financial support of billionaire backers like George Soros and Tom Steyer.

The SPLC’s pushing of ads in Spanish is likely a ploy to help Democrats, as Hispanic voters are more likely to be registered Democrat than Republican in the state.

But while Hispanic voters as a whole seem to favor Democrats, one sub-sect of the population may create trouble for Democrats hoping to rely on their votes. Puerto Ricans are favoring Republicans more and more, according to a recent poll.

That poll shows that Puerto Ricans prefer Republican Gov. Rick Scott against Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson in the race for U.S. Senate in Florida.

Many Puerto Rican-Americans also have problems with Gillum, as they feel he is too far aligned with socialist politicians like Sen. Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. That anger is displayed in a recent video showing a crowd of Cuban and Puerto-Rican protesters mobbing a Gillum rally in Tampa.

There’s no telling how the upcoming election will go in Florida. But if the SPLC getting involved is likely a signal that Democrats are struggling.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”



Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
