    Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, you have my vote. Republicans have made Florida a national laughing stock.
    Are you sure you don't want to be governor?

    Man, I would love to see Rick Scott put out to pasture. The fact that he wants to do away with SS and Medicare and can get a vote in Florida astounds me.

    Hey Debbie, this is America NOT Cuba or wherever you are from. So now it's a disadvantage to be a non-Hispanic American? I say that you are being racist towards the minority in Miami, Hispanics, non-Hispanics need protection from the Cub@n mafia in SFLO

    Btw, I don't like Rick Scott, but not because he's a non-Hispanic, because he $ucks!

    Not living in FL I do wish she takes him out for good. Scott have always been a disgusting individual ever since before he was FL governor, he's always had absolutely no empathy to anyone that is not in his own bubble.

    Only Florida would elect Scott. Scott was listed as an unindicted co conspirator in the largest Medicare fraud case in American history.

    Unfortunately the right is entrenched, especially among the South Florida Cuban community. They agree wholeheartedly with the right-wing nonsense that's being instituted across the state. This state is lost.

    No one who enables Traitor Trump, or any of the MAGA whack-jobs, is qualified to hold elected office. That includes Rick Scott. He was a disaster as Governor and has done nothing in the Senate. Perhaps worse than having plead the Fifth 70+ times when deposed about Medicaid fraud, is his silence about Traitor Trump. Vote for anyone but him or any of the other enablers, but for sake of our democracy, vote.

    Rick Scott and meatball Ron should be voted out. Scott did nothing for Florida and DeSantis is a disgusting racist. Why do we put these clowns in office. Debbie Powell she got my vote

    After Rick Scott's missteps and "misspeaks," Rick Scott hasn't represented his constituents well, but embarrassed them. Pack your bags, Ricky.

    I live in Florida and during the last presidential election I requested a mail-in ballot due to my job. I never received the mail-in ballot.I'm also registered as a Democrat ( I am a independent) so I can vote in the primaries. I totally believe that's why I did not receive my mail-in ballot, so I went to the polls and voted in person. Republicans are hypocrites and they are very dangerous due to their mental issues.

    Why anyone would vote for Skeletor again is beyond me. (Unless they love high $insurance and hate Soc.Sec./Medicare)

    Rick Scott should literally be in jail for being ceo of the company that committed the biggest Medicare ripoff in USA history!!!! And Florida still elected him to be governor and now senator 😳😳😳

    I like her. Problem is Florida voters are stupid.
    By "stupid", I mean they vote against their own interests all the time.
    You cannot use logic when analyzing how they will vote.
    Elderly Floridians will vote Republican, even though Republicans
    have openly proposed reducing Social Security.
    They voted Disantis into office, even though he has always been anti-choice.

    I expect Florida voters to be stupid again.
