Florida’s Democrat gubernatorial primary is becoming more and more chaotic every day.
In a recent interview, Democrat Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn argued there was “huge vacuum” in the race as Gwen Graham and Philip Levine flounder amid repeated episodes of hypocrisy, negative attacks on each other as entitled and “tone-deaf,” and paltry activist support.
Now, other Florida Democrats are beginning to seize the opportunity left by this “huge vacuum.”
Over the weekend, Democrat candidate Chris King received the endorsement of the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), offering a big “boost” to his “credibility.”
On Monday, Democrat lobbyist Nikki Fried announced she is considering entering the race “after coming to the conclusion the current field of Democratic candidates ‘need(s) a heart transplant.”
As Florida Democrats grow more divided, their chances of taking back the governorship in November continue to diminish.
