Democrats running in every Florida House race for first time since 2018

Florida Democrats will have a candidate running for their party in every one of the 28 state House districts for the first time since 2018, the Florida Democratic Party announced.

Last Friday was the state’s election filing deadline, and the Florida Democratic Party made a conscious effort this election cycle to recruit Democrats to run for every seat in the Republican-dominated state.

“Florida Democrats just filed to compete for every congressional seat,” Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Nikki Fried said. “It does not matter if we’re running in Pensacola or Key West, every part of this state is worth fighting for and we are not going to let Florida Republicans walk into office without being held accountable. Florida Democrats are fired up and ready to compete everywhere.”

The GOP holds 20 out of the state’s 28 House seats, and 19 of those seats are rated “solid Republican” by the Cook Political Report. Only three seats in the state are listed as competitive by the Cook Political Report.

But Democrats have candidates trying in every district, even in districts that have popular Republican incumbents.


Good.  Competition is good for politics.  Let the best ideas and best candidates win.

How much cheating will they engage in?

Who knows.  At any rate this isn't good.  We need to hang on to our conservative majorities.  They have accomplished a lot. My concern is with the influx of those who have moved to the state, the GOP may lose some seats.

They'll get smoked again.  The republicans should work on flipping the jewish districts north of Miami.
