Last week: With polls showing that the Republican Governor’s race is a virtual tie between Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and Congressman Ron DeSantis, one would assume that an “every vote counts” philosophy would dictate outreach to every single Republican voter—including black Republicans. Not quite. Neither chose to invest in reaching out to Florida’s 60,000 black Republican voters. The same applies to the two Republican candidates for Attorney General and the four candidates for Secretary of Agriculture. Apparently, black Republican votes are not worth any such effort. Let’s see how the losers feel on August 29th!
