Florida’s economy is booming. With the passage of tax reform and smart regulatory reforms, consumers have more money in their pockets to travel and Florida is a prime location. In fact, Florida tourism numbers reached a record high in the first quarter of 2018 and Florida’s economy recently topped $1 trillion. However, recent legislation co-sponsored by our own Republican Rep. Francis Rooney would hike all Americans’ gas prices and jeopardize Florida’s economy.
The spectacle of the Ford-Kavanaugh hearing last week was riveting, as many of us across the country watched their testimony.
Chris King
In 1998, while a student at Harvard College, Chris King ran for president of the Harvard student government, the Undergraduate Council. He lost. In reflecting on his campaign the following year in a Newhouse News Service article, King blamed the Harvard student newspaper, the Crimson, for his loss. “I was nailed to the cross,” said King, in referring to the coverage of his race by the Crimson. “And most of the editorial staff that was so hard on me, the vast majority were Jewish.”
Twice during Tuesday night's debate Sen. Bill Nelson bemoaned the state of Florida teachers' salaries -- "they're $10,000 less than the national average for teachers," he said.

Julie Swetnick and Brett Kavanaugh
If you've paid attention even the slightest to the Senate confirmation hearing/roundup/clown show/fiesta-fiasco surrounding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, then you are aware of the numerous dramatic hysterics that have been attached. Following a moderately contentious hearing, suddenly a rush of “surprise” witnesses have come forward claiming various levels of impropriety by the nominee in his youth -- with one bearing a connection to South Florida.
It has become commonplace to bemoan the state of our democracy. Our institutions are being challenged, and conversations in the public square have coarsened. In a week of drama over the confirmation of Brett M. Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska had some advice for rectifying the situation: Congress should legislate. 
Maria Elvira Salazar
You know Republican Maria Elvira Salazar is a pretty good candidate when the Florida Democratic Party resorts to treating voters in Congressional District 27 like idiots in order to discredit her.
Beth Alden, Hillsborough MPO executive director
The Hillsborough Metropolitan Planning Organization is dysfunctional and in need of a big housecleaning: a new executive director and new staff.
Everyone is aware by now how Andrew Gillum won Florida’s gubernatorial Democratic Primary.
