With the circus in Washington and high visibility cage match for governor and senator, most voters pay little attention to the Florida Attorney General’s race.
That could change soon.
A lot of interest in the race should come from one issue: Guns.
Guns are a hotter topic among voters since the shootings at Parkland’s Majory Stoneman Douglas High earlier this year. Much of this attention has been fueled by a group of media savvy, telegenic MSD students arguing for tougher gun controls.
And guns could propel this race onto your mobile’s screen.
The reason? The candidates are polar opposites on guns. They are oil and water. They are the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre and anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg:
- Ashley Moody, the Republican, pledges to “never waver” from the Constitutional right to “keep and bear arms.”
- Sean Shaw, the Democrat, promises to advocate for a ban on assault weapons and a repeal of the “Stand Your Ground” law.
