Leading congressional Democrats aren’t on the ballot in next week’s primary but they have skin in the game as South Florida voters hit the polls.
Looking to ensure Florida remains in the Democratic column come November, Hillary Clinton is sending her running mate to campaign in the Sunshine State later this week.
Possibly facing a more competitive race in November than she is used to, South Florida Republican Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen called on the GOP leadership to do more to battle Zika.
U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte apologized Friday for his behavior surrounding an incident at a Rio de Janeiro gas station, saying he should have been more "careful and candid" about how he described what happened after a night of partying with his teammates.
But he didn't explain why he embellished details of an encounter with armed security guards and called it a robbery, and why he left out that he and three teammates had vandalized a gas station restroom.
While it might be another week until the primary, the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) is ready for businessman Randy Perkins to win the Democratic nomination to replace Congressman Patrick Murphy who is running for the U.S. Senate.
Perkins is currently running a radio ad featuring the support of Congressman Alcee Hastings.
“Randy really knows the struggles of working people and will fight for you in Congress,” Hastings says in the radio spot.
State CFO Jeff Atwater waded into one of the most competitive Republican primaries in Florida on Friday as he threw his support to Rebecca Negron’s bid to replace Congressman Patrick Murphy who is running for the U.S. Senate.
The National Right to Life Committee waded into two Republican congressional primaries in Florida on Thursday, backing Francis Rooney and Rebecca Negron in open races.
With a poll released this week showing Hillary Clinton up by 9 percent in the Sunshine State, a major media outlet reported that Florida “remains a particular concern” for Donald Trump’s campaign with some infighting between the Republican nominee’s supporters.
Though many claim the Clinton Foundation, founded 15 years ago by former President Bill Clinton, has done good work in some very poor parts of the world, others maintain the good works are a dodge for the enrichment it brings the Clintons, and at the very least will present a disturbing conflict of interest if Hillary Clinton is elected president in November.
To spell it out:
Since its founding, the foundation has supported such charitable causes as relief in Haiti, global health and schools where there were none before.
A new poll shows Hillary Clinton with a solid lead over Donald Trump in Florida, the largest swing state in the presidential contest.
