Florida Primary – Rubio and Wasserman-Schultz in Key Races

MarcoAndDebbieU.S. News & World Report:

In an election cycle so far marked by insurgent, outsider success, blue chip politicians Sen. Marco Rubio, Sen. John McCain, and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz look to quell rebellions against them Tuesday.

Arizona and Florida are holding primaries, and the two Republican senators and former Democratic National Committee chairwoman are looking to turn their attention to the general election. All three are favored to win, but anti-incumbent sentiment, among other concerns, have all three politicians on guard.  …

Rubio, the former presidential candidate, has been criticized for reneging on his promise not to run again for senate, if he lost the Republican nomination for president.

Businessman Carlos Beruff, who some say has fashioned himself in the model of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, has harshly criticized Rubio.

“Washington’s candidate Marco Rubio continues to lie about me and about his record, hiding behind his Washington allies of course,” Beruff said in a July press release. “It’s no surprise considering integrity is clearly not an important quality to Senator Rubio, who lied to the people of Florida about amnesty, lied about his support for Donald Trump and lied about his promise to not run for reelection.”

Wasserman Schultz, still reeling from having to step down from running the DNC, is facing a challenge from law school professor Tim Canova, who is endorsed by Sen. Bernie Sanders. Some have criticized Sanders in recent days for failing to do more on Canova’s behalf, however.

Wasserman Schultz, on the other hand, is backed by a formidable political trifecta: President Barack Obama, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, and Vice President Joe Biden.

Well, it sounds as if the races today will be politics as usual. Wouldn’t it be nice to get a surprise for a change?

Frankly, I don’t care what happens to the Democrat candidate; I wouldn’t back either of them. I don’t know anything about the Senate race challenger to Rubio, although I don’t think Rubio is a lost cause at this point. I could be wrong.

I would dearly love to see Senator McCain turned out to pasture. It would be good for Arizona, and good for the country.
