Florida jumped the primary calendar this year, and with more than 50 delegates up for grabs will have more of an impact on who the Republicans nominate. We discussed all the aspects of the primary with our team of analysts: Dr. Ed Moore, political analyst and president and CEO of the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida; Mario Piscatella, Democratic consultant; and Folio Weekly columnist A.G. Gancarski.
Piscatella said Brown’s victory signaled that Democrats can do better in Duval and that Obama might be able to fare as well as he did in 2008, a critical piece of the formula for winning Florida’s trove of electoral votes.
“At the very least, he can get the same 48, 49 percent he got last time, and that probably decides the statewide election,” Piscatella said.
“Epic disaster. That’s the wording I’m stuck with,” said Mario Piscatella of MPA Political in St. Johns County. Piscatella has worked on congressional and presidential campaigns.
Minion struggled to find a comparison. Mario Piscatella, a St. Johns County-based political consultant who specializes in federal campaigns, said the closest ray of optimism he could offer Crist harkens back to the mid-1990s, when President Bill Clinton went on to secure a second term after being bashed over health care reform and fighting accusations of infidelity.
It’s about convincing voters a candidate is best qualified to improve their communities, said the political consultant and veteran Democratic campaign manager from St. Johns County.
“If the candidate got into the race to spread their Islamic faith, that’s probably going to be a tough race,” Piscatella said. “If it’s because roads are in disrepair, then that’s what they should be talking about.”
