One of the least talked about competitive races in Florida is the one for the state House district 93 seat in Broward County, Florida.
Incumbent state Representative George Moraitis (R) is facing a challenge from openly gay and former Broward County Commissioner Ken Keechl (pictured), who appears to have missed those days of sulking in the political sun.
Keechl ran and lost re-election to the commission to now-County Commissioner Chip LaMarca (D) four years ago, and is ready to make a big comeback to politics.
Both Keechl and Moraitis have been relatively quite this election cycle, but now Keechl has reared his head out to attack his opponent with those two dreaded and apocalyptic words, “Donald Trump.”
In response to Donald Trump’s hot mic moment, Keechl stated the following:
“Then came his Saturday reaction to the release of Trump’s 2005 comments about using sexual assault as a way to pick up women. Moraitis acknowledged the recording “makes it difficult” to back Trump, but he didn’t renounce his support…That’s George Moraitis, ever ready to stand and salute. Politics over principle. The lack of backbone matters, not just in Tallahassee, but close to home”
But while the attack against Moraitis is fair, has Keechl gone on record to denounce Hillary Clinton’s email scandal? Or will he go on record to denounce President Bill Clinton’s Oval Office adultery and past alleged Domestic Violence missteps?
Keechl’s silence on the Clinton’s email scandal and President Clinton’s extramarital adventures sounds a lot like that “politics over principle” remark he made.
