‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle

Published

Appearing on MSNBC’s “AM Joy,” Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida’s 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida’s Latino community.

“All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye,” she explained. “I say that, Floridians — Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community.”

“You pare that down with a lot of the more conservative folks that are Democrats in Florida and I don’t see a pathway for him there,” she continued. “That’s just the beginning. I can tell you right now Donald Trump has been targeting folks on my staff since March of last year with an anti-democratic socialist message in Spanglish, English and Spanish. They are not leaving anybody behind, people don’t realize there’s a socialization happening on the Trump campaign that’s been very effective. Then you understand the population of someone like a Floridian voter and you know vying for Florida, he’s [Sanders]  going to figure out, if I don’t have Florida — I’m almost 125,000 percent confident he wouldn’t get it — where is the pathway?”

Trump’s ‘chaos’ campaign is floundering and he has nowhere else to go: conservative

Published

In her column for the Washington Post, 'Never-Trumper" conservative Jennifer Rubin said that Donald Trump's attempt to rile up voters with racist rhetoric and threats of "anarchists" destroying what the founders built is falling on deaf ears as his poll numbers continue to slide.

Worse yet for the president is that it is not sustainable and, with a cratering economy and pandemic tearing through the country on his watch, there is nothing left for his campaign to run on.

Published

President Donald Trump's campaign is making a solemn vow to supporters that he will never allow the destruction of iconic statues located in foreign countries.
