Trump Nation (DeSantis) Vs. Bernie Nation (Gillum) In Florida

Published

on

The Deplorable movement in Florida will face off against the Bernie Sanders movement as two populist candidates took their parties’ respective nominations for governor Tuesday night.

The Florida gubernatorial race is extremely important as a bellweather test for President Donald Trump, who will be campaigning in Florida in the 2020 presidential election.

Trending: SAD: Fake News Media Attempts to Re-Brand Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic as the ‘Trumpvirus’

ORLANDO, Fla. — Florida Democrats nominated Andrew Gillum, the Tallahassee mayor, and Republicans tapped Representative Ron DeSantis for governor Tuesday, setting the stage for a ferocious general election in the country’s largest swing state between one of President Trump’s most unabashed allies and an outspoken progressive who would be Florida’s first black governor.
Mr. Gillum’s defeat of the former congresswoman Gwen Graham, the front-runner, marked one of the most significant upsets of the primary season and was a major victory for the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. It sets up twin governors’ races in neighboring southern states between left-leaning African Americans banking on the region’s new, diversifying electorate, and ardent, Trump-style nationalists.
Georgia’s Democratic candidate, Stacey Abrams, will now be joined by Mr. Gillum, while its Republican candidate, the secretary of state Brian Kemp, has a mirror to the south in Mr. DeSantis.
And here, with redistricting looming after the next census, Medicaid expansion on the line and control of the most crucial presidential battleground at stake, the Florida governor’s race is shaping up to be a titanic showdown. The specter of two young, hard-charging politicians who represent the beating heart of their parties facing off will supercharge the fall campaign.

Matt Gaetz Makes America First Pledge to Refuse All Campaign Contributions from Political Action Committees

Gaetz’s pledge is unprecedented for a conservative Republican.

Published

on

Congressman Matt Gaetz made a seemingly unprecedented pledge for a conservative Republican when speaking at CPAC on Thursday, stating that he would henceforth refuse any and all campaign contribution pledges from Political Action Committees for the duration of his political career.

The pledge is fueled by Gaetz’s desire to free the conservative and America First movement from corporate, big business interests that seek to preserve the liberal status quo of free trade, mass immigration, and globalist foreign policy.

Gaetz slammed the corrupt special interests and PAC’s within the “Swamp of Washington, D.C,” lambasting them for the naked corruption he had witnessed members of congress engaging in since arriving in DC since 2017.

We will not be able to defend crony or corrupt capitalism. That’s not the America we’ve been fighting for within the America First movement.

Gaetz slammed the political establishment for “importing cheap labor to fuel big business here at home,” calling for a conservative movement that aimed for more than “prostituting itself to globalist multinationalist corporations.

He called for a conservative movement that recognizes the danger of oligarchy as a threat to be just as dangerous as that of socialism.

We reject the model of Venezuela, as we reject the model of Davos.

Gaetz’s pledge reflects an increasing tenor within the conservative movement calling for a divorce between the Republican Party and big business interests that have long freely bought interest and policy within it.

Our home is not for sale to any special interest, ever!”
