As early voting gets underway, Nan Rich debuts new mailer


With early voting already underway in several counties, Democratic candidate for governor Nan Rich has a new mailer out.

One side includes an endorsement from former Democratic Gov. Buddy MacKay.

The other highlights Rich's experience in the Florida Senate, where she served for eight years, and stresses her progressive credentials.

"Nan has always been a leading progressive advocate for children, women, seniors and social justice issues," the mailer reads. "Her successful efforts to expand support for home and community-based care programs for seniors has allowed thousands of Florida’s frail elderly to remain in their own homes instead of moving into nursing homes."

Rich is the underdog in the Aug. 26 primary. Her opponent, former Gov. Charlie Crist, is better known and better financed.

Rich's latest mailer went out to Democratic primary voters across the state last week, campaign spokesman Sterling Clifford said.

The ad was paid for by the Florida Democratic Party. But it was neither an endorsement nor a gift, FDP spokesman Max Steele said.

Steele said the party often helps candidates get lower rates on mailers and TV ads. 

"It's something we offer to both candidates," he said.

To get the lower rates, the ad must be endorsed by three elected officials. In this case, the elected officials were: state Sen. Oscar Braynon, D-Miami Gardens; state Sen. Darren Soto, D-Orlando; and state Rep. Amanda Murphy, D-New Port Richey.

Democrat primary voters plan to vote for this nancy lady who is the only true democrat in the race. They will not be fooled by party leaders who are either too gullible to figure out or corrupt that the scumbag crist was sent as a trojan horse by republicans to destroy the party.

Can't take anymore

It appears that Ed Jenkins is about the only person (if he is a real person) who cares that Nan's campaign has produced a new brochure. The rest of us don't care.

Don't speak for everyone "Can't take anymore", let's see what the voters decide on August 26th.

Glad to see that Nan has sent out a brochure! And especially glad to see that the FDP has helped pay for it. She definitely has my vote!

I feel that Nan Rich is the only Governor possibility here in this race. We are done with backstabbing advertizing, so much wasted funds for this race, lies, deception, etc. We can't trust the other to crooks to steal from Florida, the voting power, and Floridians themselves.
