Here in Florida, the Democrats had a wide open primary with many candidates. An African-American mayor from Tallahassee, Andrew Gilliam, won in an upset with 33% of the vote. Gilliam is an extreme leftist who is pushing for single payer health care, open borders, the end of ICE and over a billion dollars in new state spending with taxes raises to match it. The last poll I heard claims that he is up by 9 points over Republican Rick DiSantos.
If this clown wins, it’s going to get really tough for a lot of retirees here. I am sure that he will be pushing for a state income tax, and there are measures on the ballot which could push our sales tax up the 8 1/2%.
In the mean time it appears that Ted Cruz is running neck and neck with an equally left wing candidate in Texas. Cruz’s opponent is just like Gilliam with similar views.
When is happening in the South? Are the Democrats about ready to take over the rest of the country? You hear these claims that the U.S. is a centrist country, and yet it appears that we about to take a major lurch to the left.
What do you think?
