Florida Democrats for Governor

Some bids for political office have merit… other do not. A couple of the Democrats running for the right to be on the November ballot as a candidate for the Florida Governor race come to mind as severely unqualified;

The first is Gwen Graham… I guess if your father was once a State Senator and Florida governor that you must automatically have what it takes to be governor. She does have a two year stint as a US House Representative, but decided not to run for reelection when the district she was a shoe in for the 2014 election was redrawn and was going to be a challenge to win in 2016. She was a housewife and mother for 13 years and if I’m not mistaken she was once elected president of the local PTA.

The other is Andrew Gillum… his claim to fame is being the son of a bus driver and getting elected as mayor of Tallahassee, FL. One of his major accomplishments, according to his own tv ad, was to stand up to the NRA and make it illegal to discharge a firearm in any of the city parks. Wow… I’m sure the NRA was running a high profile campaign against Gillum’s efforts to add the city parks as places where you weren’t allowed to shoot a gun… Most likely there was already laws making it illegal to discharge a firearm anywhere in the city limits, which would include the city parks, so what was this great accomplishment?

All of the Democrats vying for a spot on the November ballot as candidate for Florida’s next Governor are sounding the same… spewing identical liberal socialistic ideals for a utopia society where everyone gets everything they need without having to work for any of it while the government apparently has unlimited funds to pay for it all.
