Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 07, 2018

The blue wave in Florida was trumped Tuesday by red turnout. Florida's sole statewide elected Democrat, Sen. Bill Nelson, was on track to lose his seat. The party's exciting new candidate for governor, Andrew Gillum, conceded. Democrats running for attorney general and state chief financial officer all lost; and the Democratic agriculture commissioner candidate trails in a race headed for a recount. The Legislature is still controlled by Republicans.

For the third straight general election in a row, the Florida Democratic Party's top candidates got shellacked. But unlike in past election losses, there are no easy scapegoats, no simple answers to what happened to Gillum and Nelson, who has not conceded the race.

Big Blue Wave needed a little blue pill.

I mean yes, after last night, Donald Trump is absolutely going to prison. It's like Christmas in November. I want to open the Tax Returns package first.

Most of us hoped and voted for Gillum and Nelson but knew that the millions of old farts living here would believe the lies in the ads and vote for the Republicans. They had them convinced Gillum was going to put in a state income tax when, in reality, all he proposed was a tax on the largest corporations in the state. Florida is a stupid state, we know that, this is no surprise nor is it soul crushing. Let the investigations begin in the House of Representatives. That's the real news, you think there were a lot of Benghazzin investigations, you haven't seen nothing yet!

Florida elected the perpetrator of the largest Medicare fraud in history solely because he has an R after his name. I would not be proud about that.

no simple answers to what happened to Gillum

Simple: Florida voters rejected Bernie Sanders' politics.

The Tom Bradley Effect.

Florida is the taint of America so it's no surprise they'd elect Scott and swing harder towards Trumpland.

One of the scariest things about climate change is Floridians dispersing into the rest of the US.

Easy, no way Florida voters were going to monkey up their state.

Gillum conceded too quickly.

Simple: Florida voters rejected Bernie Sanders' politics.

A state that lives off of social security payments rejects socialism. They should carry that to the logical conclusion and stop accepting the checks and medicare benefits.

We are gonna have to recount after every election now?

Now that elections are getting so close we really need to make sure our election systems are secure.

I am so glad that Humpy is all over that.

Hey Spork... we didn't see no Humpy wave.

A Trump wave would be yellow and should be easy to see.
