Yes, gladly wrong on at least one count. The Senate seat is still in the air, but will probably go to Scott.
Gilliam was up by 7% in the polls and never trailed. DeSantis ran a quiet campaign, even by the measure of Fox News, Brian Kilme, who came here to speak a week and a half before the election. He looked to be hopeless. I guess enough Florida votes didn’t believe that Gilliam could raise the “rich bastards” taxes and give everybody else everything for nothing. Usually that message sells.
The country is still in trouble. We won these races by close margins, the younger generation is brainwashed, and the next business cycle will work to the left’s advantage. Everything they get when they take over seldom gets reversed. They are invading our “safe states” and are in full control of their “safe states.” The future does look good. If they get Texas’ 36 electoral votes, they own the presidency and everything else. That is reality, not pessimism. Trump has been the only thing between them and total control.
In the mean time the sales tax in my county has been raised to an oppressive 8.5% by a voter referendum. The future does not look promising.
