    Donald Trump and his wife Melania are spending the Thanksgiving holiday at the business mogul's Mar-a-Lago resort.  Trump bought the estate for $10million in 1985 for his then wife Ivana. The resort was developed in the 1920s for heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post.  After he acquired the resort, Trump redeveloped the main house and created his own private quarters - decked out in gold.

    A primary obstacle to Florida open carry has been removed. The person who was blocking open carry in Florida was Senator Diaz de la Portilla (R) of Miami Dade.  Senator Portilla refused to let the open carry bill out of committee in 2015.  Then he repeated the performance in 2016. The bill had passed the Miami House by an overwhelming margin, and had a large majority support in the Senate. From sun-sentinal.com: And yet he singlehandedly has killed in the Legislature this year bills that would allow concealed carry permit holders to openly carry firearms, to carry them on...

    Political statistician Nate Silver officially projected that Republican nominee Donald Trump will win the highly influential swing state of Florida, according to an analysis published Sunday.

Trump made incredible progress in the state, coming up from a 22 percent chance as of Oct. 15. Clinton has fallen from a 78 percent chance of winning the state since Oct. 15.

    Refusing to bow to a request made by the Clinton campaign, Florida Gov. Rick Scott said his state won’t extend its Oct. 11 voter-registration deadline, despite the potential for massive devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew. A lawyer working at a firm that’s represented the Clinton campaign signaled that a lawsuit may be coming soon. “Well @FLGovScott I know some folks who are gonna have the last say on this. And none of them is you. #seeyouincourt,” Perkins Coie lawyer Jean-Jacques Cabou said on Twitter.

    Nevada, North Carolina and Florida could all be decided before Election Day because of historic spikes in early voting, Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said Thursday. "We are encouraging supporters to cast their vote early because it is possible ... that we could build an insurmountable lead in those key states before Election Day," Mook said on a press call with reporters. Wins in those three states would make it very difficult to imagine an Electoral College scenario in which Trump, the Republican nominee, would win the White House.

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott said Thursday that the state would not extend its Oct. 11 voter-registration deadline in response to Hurricane Matthew, throwing cold water on a request from the Clinton campaign. "I'm not going to extend it," the governor told reporters Thursday. "Everybody has had a lot of time to register. On top of that, we have lots of opportunities to vote: early voting, absentee voting, Election Day. So I don't intend to make any changes." Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, said Thursday that they hoped election officials in the Sunshine State would consider making accommodations for voters...

    Last Friday, the Tampa Bay Times published an absolutely asinine editorial in which it claimed the NRA and companies like Delta Defense are prepping gun owners for the legal ramifications of shooting someone. The state has created such a Wild West atmosphere that gun owners are signing up for coaching and legal help so they can be prepared when they shoot someone. …An emerging industry that offers instructions to members for responding to police after they shoot someone, liability coverage and legal advice fuels a shoot-first mentality.
