Excitement reigns in Democratic ranks as a whole rodeo of presidential candidates is prepping at this moment to step onto the debate stage Wednesday or Thursday evening at Miami Beach's Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
The Democratic Party, with a field of nearly two dozen announced candidates, is getting set to open its debate schedule for the 2020 presidential campaign. The first debate is set for Miami and in anticipation, Team Blue is placing a great deal of energy behind a very serious outreach effort -- appealing to the Hispanic/Latino voters.
In the growing tempest of our social battlefield -- and the growing intolerance of special interests who preach tolerance -- Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Kyle Kashuv has been caught in the cultural crossfire.
Weeks following the announcement that he had been accepted to Harvard, a controversy erupted. Kyle found himself on the receiving end of that now-common practice among social activists (on both ends of the political spectrum), the social media proctology exam.
The new abortion legislation taking hold in select states in recent months has caused an undertow among the backers of last November’s Blue Wave election, most demonstrably the gang of loudmouth Hollywood libs.

When U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz was finished speaking at a town hall he staged in Pensacola over the weekend, a crowd of protestors was waiting outside to greet him. In case you haven't noticed, voicing opposition no longer is enough for some political opponents. Gaetz was coated with a dairy smoothie delivered by a citizen who is more than a perturbed constituent.
Hurling creamy projectiles at our politicians may become the trendy new version of the op-ed feature. Certainly liberals have the hang of it and their pals in the media get a giggle out of it.
If congressional Democrats won't pay for Donald Trump's border wall, Iraq war veteran and triple amputee Brian Kolfage reasoned that maybe the American people would pony up the money themselves.
They drew up a gadget play that was supposed to score big. But the courts threw a flag and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were foiled.
An appellate court recently handed down a decision rejecting the Florida football franchise's claim that it had been negatively impacted by the catastrophic Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
With an eye on next year’s hoped-for takeover of the White House, the Democrats are feeling a surge of pride and excitement. Many are convinced by their own press complex that Donald Trump is the most hated president since Frank Underwood, so defeating him should be a walkover. Which may be why a stampede has formed for the blue-party nomination.
And, yet, just as Leadership Blue 2019, the state’s biggest liberal event of the 2020 campaign season so far is taking place, no candidates will RSVP. Not a one.
As an indicator of how much traction the state Democratic Party lost with Hispanic voters last year, the party leadership has announced it will launch a statewide Spanish language radio program. The rollout will begin in the Miami market this weekend.
