Why are Democrats getting sucked into more DeSantis culture war stuff? Talk about economics & Health Care instead!

Democrats have a growing problem with working class voters of ALL ethnicities and races (not just white working class voters as a lot of party elites like to claim but yet, many Democratic elected officials in the state continue to be suckered into cultural battles by Governor DeSantis – the same types of battles the […]

Are “DeSantis Democrats” the new “swing”voters as part of a realignment in 2023 and beyond?

Preface: I don’t know the answer, I am just posing a question here. We’ve spent a lot of time on this site talking about the death of “swing” voters and how elections are now effectively turnout wars.

Express Lane: DeSantis as “god’s chosen instrument”, Antisemitism running rampant in DeSantis’ Florida, and latest on VBM/EV numbers

Governor Crist has released this statement about Governor DeSantis: “I am disgusted and horrified at the hateful, antisemitic rhetoric that was displayed in Jacksonville this weekend. Hate should have no home in Florida, period. “But while antisemitism is spreading in our state, Governor DeSantis […]

Just how costly was Ron DeSantis “pussy cat-like” debate performance?

Governor DeSantis turned in arguably the worst debate performance by a sitting Governor in Florida’s history on Monday night. It was the worst performance by any Gubernatorial candidate since Bill McBride’s infamous mistake-filled 2002 debate vs Jeb Bush, that led directly to the biggest landslide election many of us remember in this state. The Governor […]

The New Republic: Hurricane Ian exposes Ron DeSantis faux environmentalism

I penned this piece for The New Republic, on Thursday after Ian ravaged much of the state.

Express Lane Sept 26: Tampa Bay Hurricane History, Charlie Crist in PR

As the state casts its eye on Ian and the constantly shifting models, one thing remains clear. The Tampa Bay Area which has not been directly hit by a Hurricane since 1921 (1968 if you count Citrus County) is going to get a real dose of what the rest of the state has suffered through. […]
