The field of Democratic gubernatorial candidates tried try to out-liberal each other during a primary debate in Pinellas Park, Florida, but in the end, the field of four only made the two Republican gubernatorial candidates shine above them.Outside of taking swipes at each other, Gwen Graham, Andrew Gillum, Philip Levine, and Chris King, outed themselves as be obstructionists that will do whatever they can to “reverse” what Florida Gov. Rick Scott has accomplished during his two terms as governor.
Hours after smacking down allegations that he dropped the ball on concealed carry permit background checks, Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam stated what most Floridians who saw the debate saw, Democrats are hell-bent on raising taxes, and stifling small business.”
“Tonight we learned that the Democrats’ main objective for FL is to reverse what @FLGovScott has done to get our state back to work. They will increase our taxes, impose more red tape on our small businesses and put the interests of teachers’ unions above those of our students.”– Adam Putnam
Putnam is running against Rep. Ron DeSantis, who has been endorsed by President Trump, for the Republican nomination for governor.
