Democratic congressional candidate Debbie Mucarsel-Powell better be charging up her best hover board if she stands any chance of defeating Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R) in next year’s general election.
Aside from being an avid hover boarder, Curbelo has proven that not only can he raise campaign money, but can also outlast even the most seasoned opponent.
Mucarsel-Powell is consider by some to be a formidable opponent, even though she was soundly defeated in a 2016 state Senate race by incumbent state Senator Anitere Flores (R).
Hillary Clinton outperformed President Trump by 10 points in this senate district.
Mucarsel-Powell is challenging Curbelo on his recent vote in favor of “Trumpcare,” but could find herself in a healthcare pickle due of her support for the failing Obamacare.
Via press release, National Republicans are wasting no time in targeting Mucarsel-Powell, branding her as typical Democrat candidate with “no message” and “no strategy.”
A soldier of the so-called extreme and at times violent “Resistance” movement, Mucarsel-Powell is the handpicked candidate of Nancy Pelosi’s DCCC. This makes sense, much like the DCCC, Mucarsel-Powell has no message, no strategy and no real reason to run – except to complain.
Not to be a Debbie downer, but voters rejected her and her campaign last year – and they’ll do it again in 2018.”- Courtney Alexander, Press Secretary, Congressional Leadership Fund
In the very same release, the Fund reminds Americans that President Obama endorsed Mucarsel-Powell’s losing efforts.
