With all the hoopla in Washington this past week, many folks aren’t even aware that there’s a special election coming up in just a few weeks in Florida. Robert Wexler, thankfully, retired last year, leaving the state’s 19th Congressional District seat open.
The Democrat (in this 2-to-1 D-over-R registered district), Ted Deutch (I’ll pronounce that any way I please, thank you) is heavily favored. You know, kind of like that one lady was.
Lots of old folks down there, and they’re all getting the shaft from Obamacare (of which Deutch is a big fan).
What’s more, Deutch was one of only two state Senators to vote last week against a law that recinds the policy of asking potential adoptive parents if they own firearms. The law passed the house unanimously, and the Florida State Senate 38-2. Apparently he doesn’t consider the Second Amendment as important as socializing our entire health care industry.
Oh, but there’s this: He also attempted to kill in committee a bill that would have held liable those who kill or injure a pregnant woman for the death of her unborn child. No exception, I suppose, if that woman might have planned to put the child up for adoption by parents who at one point or another owned a gun.
