    Rep.-elect Ross Spano’s Republican primary opponents are outraged, too. Revelations that GOP Rep.-elect Ross Spano violated campaign finance law by taking out personal loans and directing approximately the same amount to his campaign should disqualify him from serving in Congress, Florida Democrats say. Spano “knew exactly what he was doing when he took personal loans and used them as campaign funds, which is against the law,” Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Terrie Rizzo said in a statement earlier this week. “This matter needs to be fully investigated, and appropriate actions taken.” The freshman Republican acknowledged transgressing rules against straw donations in...

    Attorney for Bikers for Trump leader Chris Cox says 15 tags could prove tampering with 37,500 ballots This is what democracy looks like. Bikers for Trump leader Chris Cox bustled through the throng of protesters at the Broward County elections office at the heart of the Florida recount fandango, drawing attention to colored zip-tie tags found on the ground near the building’s loading dock.

    Florida Democrats are calling for state officials to extend the voter registration deadline as Hurricane Michael approaches. Florida Democratic Party Chairman Terrie Rizzo sent a formal letter to Gov. Rick Scott (R) and Secretary of State Ken Detzner on Monday requesting that they push back the deadline as Floridians prepare for the storm. Tuesday is the state's deadline for eligible individuals to vote ahead of November’s elections, but the impending hurricane will “adversely impact the ability of these eligible, but unregistered individuals who may have waited until the last day in order to register to vote,” Rizzo wrote.

    Former Republican National Committee Chair Michael Steele ripped Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) for urging Florida voters not to “monkey this up” by voting for his Democratic gubernatorial opponent, Andrew Gillum, who is African-American. “… It’s how white folks talk about black men who are successful,” Steele said on MSNBC’s “Meet the Press.” Steele also criticized DeSantis for calling Gillum “articulate.” “I heard that he’s ‘articulate,’ that ‘he performs well,’ … he’s checking off those boxes. Why do you have to describe him that way?” he said. "Doesn’t happen to a lot of white candidates," he added, echoing host Chuck Todd's...
