The biggest Trump supporter in #Florida is the @FloridaGOP gubernatorial nominee @RonDeSantisFL.

@politicofl's @MarcACaputo reports he chose #Miami Republican Rep. Jeanette M. Nunez as his running mate.

This is what she had to say about Donald Trump:
It looks so nice in the original mobile format.
I guess @RepJNunez has to stop opposing the KKK to join the @RonDeSantisFL campaign?

Right @BillyCorben?

Social Media Analysis of the race for #Miami's easternmost #FL27 Congressional district which has five Democrats vying to be the nominee (and presumptive front-runner) to replace Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.

I used @crowdtangle to analyze all 5 candidates last 3 months.

@david4florida - highest engagement rate, most retweets
@matthaggman - most popular single post, lowest engagement rate, most posts.
@VOTEHEPBURN - doing better than:
@rosengonzalez - least posts, fewest interactions
@DonnaShalala - nearly fewest posts, underperforming
The most popular post in the entire last 3 months is from @matthaggman who has the most overall engagements by posting more and more material. He's also leading in most posts, almost double Richardson, but has 1/4th of R's engagement rate. Effective tho.

Why is @DonnaShalala running for Congress in #Miami as a Democrat after she supported a generation of Republican lawmakers to turn Florida's public education system into a charter school paradise while hurting unions? #FL27

I call it: Donna Does Republican Donations

Part 1/2
Shalala donated to some of #Florida's WORST #Republican state lawmakers including bigots, tax cheats, adulterers an to employees of the state's largest charter school who voted to expand that school's reach!

She said it was a quid pro quo to get benefits for UM.

Part 2/2

#Miami Commissioners @JoeCarolloNow @KeonHardemon @kenrussellmiami just put a vague 3-page public land giveaway on the ballot in November to "let the voters decide" on a blank check 100-acre no-bid real estate deal for a billionaire with a soccer stadium.

Local residents are telling me they feel threatened by the two arson blazes at the 175-acre city's Melreese golf course and adjacent Grapeland Water Park.

It's tough for voters to feel comfortable debating amidst these acts of devastating violence.

Police arrested a suspect one of the fires, but he may not be the one who set both blazes.

Imagine the fear of having your home burned down for speaking out.

Commissioners don't have to, they can get full-time security at public expense if scared.

I would like to say something about the #Miami MLS proposal.

Firstly, forget the merits, there's a big problem.

The process.

I do not trust it.

Residents must make a final decision on a complex multi-million dollar real estate transaction.

Thus far, the @MiamiHerald's @joeflech was stonewalled when requesting the public records to report on it during the last month.

The vote is Thursday.

Then it goes to a referendum where competing groups will dump millions of dollars into lobbying a plan nobody has seen yet.

Residents of @CityofMiami have seen the failure of the backwards approach to business time & time again.

Not just from failed developments.

But from MLS very specifically, who has already announced another stadium deal with the City of Miami in 2015

Dear #Miami Democrats

The movement to #AbolishICE - which #FL27 candidate @matthaggman supports - isn't just a symbolic maneuver and @Ocasio2018's victory on that platform isn't just a "mood."

ICE's most important agents agree.

"It says a lot about the mood in that district," former Health and Human Services secretary @DonnaShalala, a Clintonite

This is exactly what #Republican-lite looks like in #FL27





Obedience to the status quo…
#Miami voters don't need someone whose entire policy agenda is an unreasoning mood.

They need someone who will look under the hood of any problem and understand why it causes so much emotion.

And address it.

Trump broke ICE.

19 Top ICE Agents agree.

1- Let's talk #CEMEX
The following work is not just mine, but a compilation of: @CoreysDigs @ScottAnthonyUSA @RebelPilled @NCDM18 @SolAdentro @cornholio74 @Patriot_17 @412Anon87 @MissRepresentU @The_War_Economy @WenjaminBalton & countless other anons that are doing research.
2-The story took off last night, but apparently has been going on for a couple of days. The group that called themselves ‘VOP Alpha Co - Team Pulaski’ (…), a group of veterans with different backgrounds & experience, dedicated to help other veterans
3-...are the ones that brought all this out to light.
They have been live streaming videos from the area, and #Facebook keeps taking them down.
What happened? VOP was in the area looking for homeless vets they could help.

Absolutely shocked with @Uber customer services after the worst Uber trip in #Miami

Booked a trip to FLL Airport yesterday, should be an easy trip, one highway most of the way

Driver spoke not a word of English, ok I get Miami is partially Spanish speaking, but not a word? 1/
Uber's response: "We know that not being able to clearly communicate with your driver can be frustrating."

What? There's no basic requirement to be able to talk to passengers?

But actually that wasn't the main issue, more so that he couldn't operate his - Spanish - SatNav 2/
So he exits I-95 (the highway up from Miami north) early THREE times. Each time he has to get back on the highway which involves sudden veering of lanes.

At this point I'm getting anxious - no phone roaming to call for help, can't talk to him and a flight to catch 3/

Thanks to @RepTedDeutch who has been doing great work in calling attention to the need for common sense #gun measures that Congress should adopt…
.@RepTedDeutch told me that the dad of @Emma4Change wanted to speak to me because @SteveKing and others are wrongly interpreting why she wore a Cuban flag on her jacket during #MarchForOurLives rally
I spoke to Jose Gonzalez who explained that @Emma4Change is proud of her dad and abuela’s #Cuban heritage and in no way was it a sign of support for the #Castro dictatorship
