Tim Canova’s takes on what went wrong and the Florida recount insanity.
Republicans Ron DeSantis and Rick Scott would have seen their margins in the governor and Senate races increase had county officials in two Democratic counties met the recount deadline Thursday. In Hillsborough County, the officials were perfectly clear: They flatly refused to submit the recounted numbers even though they had them on time.
Fahrenheit 9/11 is a 2004 documentary film by American filmmaker, director and political commentator Michael Moore. The film takes a critical look at the presidency of George W. Bush, the War on Terror, and its coverage in the news media. The film is the highest grossing documentary of all time.
As the general counsel of Al Gore’s 2000 recount effort in Florida, I’m often asked this question about the Senate and gubernatorial recounts now going on there: Why does “this” keep happening in Florida?
(9.11.2018) Numbers released Friday by the Monroe County Supervisor of Elections show that in the Florida Keys, Gov. Rick Scott actually lost his bid for U.S. Senate by 10 votes.
The initial tally after Election Day showed he carried Monroe County by exactly one vote. But an election summary report sent out Friday afternoon shows incumbent Sen. Bill Nelson received 18,036 votes to Scott’s 18,026.
Der republikanische Gourverneur Rick Scott liegt im Rennen um einen Sitz im US-Senat mit 0,15 Prozentpunkten vor seinem Kontrahenten, dem Demokraten Bill Nelson. Die Gesetze des Bundesstaates schreiben eine Neuauszählung vor, wenn der Abstand zwischen den Kandidaten nur bis zu 0,5 Prozentpunkte beträgt.
(17.10.2018) Wasserman Schultz said she is campaigning on her experience.
„I’m going to continue to do that. Talk about my record, my service on the [House] Appropriations Committee as a senior member, my fight as a leader for funding for our veterans,“ she said.
Mayor Andrew Gillum, Florida’s first African American nominee for governor, says that his opponent Ron DeSantis‘ „monkey this up“ comment was used as a way to „incite“ his base.
“The last thing we need to do is to monkey this up by trying to embrace a socialist agenda with huge tax increases and bankrupting the state,” said DeSantis to Smith.
Gillum, mayor of Tallahassee, is backed by Bernie Sanders and is campaigning on progressive policies. President Donald Trump has expressed his support for DeSantis.
Gillum was able to defeat former Democratic congresswoman Gwen Graham and former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine, two establishment Democrats with a big-spending campaign despite spending the least amount of money and having the least television presence.
Die beiden Nominierungen folgen einem Muster, welches den heißen Herbst in den USA bestimmen wird: Ein Wettkampf der linksgerichteten Seite der Demokraten gegen die rechtsgerichtete Seite der Republikaner. Die Mitte beider Parteien verliert zunehmend an Boden. Zwischen den beiden Extremen wird entschieden werden, wer künftig in der Politik das Sagen haben wird.
Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum won the Republican and Democratic nominations for Florida governor Tuesday. The political establishment, in both cases, lost.
Neither party got their preferred gubernatorial candidate, and now a hard-charging conservative will square off against a liberal progressive in an encapsulation of the current political moment.
Running to the left of his rivals and despite being vastly outspent, the charismatic and proudly liberal Gillum built a devoted statewide following of progressives. He had a well-received message of social justice and lifting up the downtrodden and an appeal to Florida’s growing diversity.
(25.7.2016) Kurz vor Beginn dieses Parteitages trat Debbie Wasserman Schultz als Vorsitzende des Democratic National Committee (DNC) zurück. Der Grund dafür sind von WikiLeaks öffentlich gemachte E-Mails, die nahe legen, das DNC im Vorwahlkampf nicht (wie es die Statuten eigentlich verlangen) neutral war, sondern sich auf Seiten Clintons geschlagen hatte und für sie arbeitete (vgl. Clinton wählt Swing-State-Gouverneur und Abtreibungsgegner als „Running Mate“). Um Clintons Konkurrenten Bernie Sanders zu schaden, setzte man der Whistleblowerplattform zufolge auch unfaire Mittel ein – darunter auch eine – so WikiLeaks – „bezahlte Trollfabrik“.
(14.5.2018) In light of the ruling, Gov. Rick Scott’s administration — which has expressed concerns with how Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes has handled the case — told POLITICO that he’s reviewing the judge’s order and will have her office monitored.
“During the upcoming election, the Department of State will send a Florida elections expert from the Division of Elections to Supervisor Snipes’ office to ensure that all laws are followed so the citizens of Broward County can have the efficient, properly run election they deserve,” Scott’s office said in a written statement.

Im vergangenen Monat, am 23.3.2018 wurde der dreissigjährige Afroamerikaner Linus Phillip, Vater zweier Kinder, durch vier Schüsse in den Rücken von der Polizei an einer Wawa-Tankstelle in Largo im U.S.-Bundesstaat Florida regelrecht wie im Blutrausch durch das Beifahrerfenster hingerichtet, nachdem die Beamten ihn zu einer Verkehrskontrolle dort zum Anhalten herausgewunken hatten.
The US state of Florida has proven itself to possess a rather formidable and eclectic outlet for some of the most destructively talented extreme metal bands in recent memory. From longtime metalcore performers Underoath to recent downtempo act Traitors, the blackened Deicide to Cynic and more; there’s something for everyone in the ole „sunshine state.“ Today’s band, Monotheist,is a progressive death metal outfit from Orlando that has just released its debut full length album…so let’s talk about it. We’ve already reviewed Rivers of Nihil recently, so let’s get down to another prog-deathsterpiece.
