Today’s Spotlight focuses on what may be a sleeper race: The former President’s home state; the state to which Governor Ron DeSantis has retreated to lick his wounds; the state where school libraries are removing dictionaries from their shelves because the dictionaries contain gay references; and so much more. Above all, Florida is the state where incumbent Senator Rick Scott (R) is seeking re-election. Conventional wisdom has this as a firmly red state but others are beginning to see a possible opening here, with revulsion at the extreme politics which elected officials have been foisting on Florida’s citizens and an amendment on the ballot that would enshrine the right to an abortion and undermine these bans, poised to further activate voters. This, thus, is one of two states that Democrats see as a potential for an upset – critically needed if we are to maintain and expand a liberal majority in the Senate. And, remember, Scott was elected with only 50.5 percent of the vote! Click her etc read more: secure.ngpvan.com/iX5OaiNrCk2Da1cSTKLMYQ2.

Today at the core of our mission is defending our democracy from MAGA Republicans and authoritarians who seek to undermine and eradicate the most sacred of our values. We look to our founders for inspiration as we prepare for the fight ahead, the fight to save, protect, and expand democracy in America. They too stood-up in the face of fascist demagogues who also tried to undermine our democracy and take away hard won rights. They won and the New Deal lives to this day because of it.
