|Scott, Crist and Rich|
The political season in Florida is in full swing now. Some candidates have been campaigning for more than a year, others have started recently. We will cover many of the races important to Blogging Black Miami readers but probably the hottest race will be that of Governor. Current Governor Rick Scott will lead the Republican ticket while the Democratic race is already an interesting match up.
Senator Nan Rich is not dropping out of the race for Florida Governor in spite of the Democratic leadership clearly supporting former Gov. Charlie Crist. Rich's supporters say she is the only true Democrat in that race and they are counting on their grassroots ground game to take her over the top. Conventional wisdom is not on Rich's side but in politics, one never really knows what can happen.
Charlie Crist, who committed career suicide as a Republican politician by daring to hug President Barack Obama, appears to have momentum in his favor thus far. He has been criticized for not agreeing to debate Rich.
