Over the last several months negativity and infighting has filled the comments section of this blog. While we all know that 2014 is likely to be a difficult year for Florida Democrats, now that candidate qualifying is closed it is important to reiterate that so much more unites people who are center-left or liberals than divides us.
Whether or not you support Charlie Crist or Nan Rich for Governor, feel President Obama is doing a good job or a bad job or believe the Florida Democratic Party has conducted itself in the best possible way, it is important to stress the items that unite rather than divide.
In the coming days and weeks, we at TFS will continue to offer critiques where needed but will also discuss what unites us and where the emphasis should be for progressives in this election year. It is also important to note that election cycles beyond 2014 have to be fought and here at TFS we will continue to take a long-term view of issue development and party building for the what promises to be a critical time in Florida’s history.
We thank you for your continued readership and support.
