1/ Just a reminder of the why Democrats are holistically terrible at politics.

Trump is HANDING you Puerto Rican voters in Florida. On a platter.

It's a layup. But the Democrats will do just what they did in 2016: jack, followed by squat.
2/ It'll be another "we got this" Potemkin Village. They'll farm it out to some contractor or group who won't go out, pull the voter file to ID PR registered voters, track down new arrivals from the island to register them, and then do advocacy, messaging, and turnout.
3/ Know why Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis won more PR voters than the Dems expected?

Because they DID THE WORK.

Put ideology aside. I'll bet you a dollar the FL Dem Party doesn't have a program to do this. I know the DNC, those incompetents, don't.
4/ The AUDIENCE is there and primed But Democrats infight, bullshit themselves blue, and pretend that some vague handwave message about Latinx issues will cover it.

It won't. Stunt casting won't cover for a total lack of org and programmatic work on the ground.
5/ Just watch. They'll say, "We have a program and x people on the ground." Reality: they don't have a program, and no one is on the ground doing id, registering, and comms to PR voters except the GOP.

"But they hate Trump." Yeah, and? That doesn't close the deal.
6/ And in closing, Bernie delenda est.
