🧵Democrat Janelle Perez quits US House race to run for FL Senate
In Aug (D) Perez announced run against (R) Maria Elvira Salazar. NOW she has abandoned that bid instead running for Senate, currently held by shill candidate beneficiary Ileana Garcia. archive.is/W1I9b
#IleanaGarcia, District 37, won by 34 votes after Frank Artiles paid an IND candidate to run, siphoning votes from the democrat.
Here's what is weird, Perez has never run for office before. She's also a former Republican & continues to financially support GOP candidates.
Perez donated $2k to Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's 2016 campaign, & $1k in 2017 to Daniel Perez, who is a close family friend.
Senate Dem Leader Lauren Book endorsed Perez.
Janelle Perez is the co-owner of her family's Medicare managed-care company.
Here's the kicker: by leaving Maria Elvira Salazar without a challenger, she has the field to herself in District 27, which includes Miami Beach, most of Miami & coastal Miami-Dade.
Dems have ZERO candidates running against a 1st term incumbent in a district Biden won in 2020.
Republicans know it.
“Dems publicly fretting about their chances in S.Florida & things arent getting any better,” Nat'l R Committee spokesperson Camille Gallo said. “Dems are going to have to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find anyone who will support their socialist agenda.”
This looks like a republican op. Former R taking the time & attn away so no one else gets ready to run in District 27, then switching over to challenge the republican's "darling" Ileana Garcia in Senate District 37.
This reeks of GOP shit & apparently Dems in Florida can't smell.

Speaking of Sarasota
I forgot about our likely theocratic spy #MikhailMorgulis, the Consul to Belarus for Florida & New York.
You know, the guy who offered dirt on @HillaryClinton to Roger Stone with Sergei Millian & rallied Russian voters in Florida in 2016... Sara-f_cking-sota
Remember, #KeithIngersoll started a Blockchain company with Morgulis while simultaneously being paid by Joel Greenberg from the Seminole County Tax Collector's Office.

Loomer vs Webster: The fringe fight Florida Republicans have been courting @Scott_Maxwell
Loomer, self-described “proud Islamophobe” — 28-y.o whos spread conspiracy theories about mass shootings, arrested multiple times & loves to claim she’s the “most banned” on the internet./1
She’s also a role model for Florida Republicans. Hillsborough County’s R-Party invited Greene to headline its big annual fundraiser just a few weeks ago.

Florida Reps are increasingly wallowing in the fringe-o-sphere — even helping elevate Loomer’s profile./2
Last year, Joe Gruters — the chairman of Rep Party — invited Loomer to serve as the posterchild for why he thought FL needed social media laws. Loomer, who said Muslims are “savages f***ing things up for everyone”. Gruters wanted to amplify her voice./3
