So did any of you watch the REP debate on TV last night?

Who are you leaning toward between Putnam and DeSantis?

    I should say which candidate of the two will you vote for in the primaries.

    Didn't see it, i have been wondering if Adam Putnam can recover from the cc permit issue.  Seemed like a smear tactict to me
    But i like what he stands for

    Didn't see it either, and a quick Google only turns up a **** storm with little real content. More negative campaigning apparently. Doesn't help me figure it out at all - as usual.

    I'll vote for whoever is strong on 2A, strong on immigration, that isn't a Bible-thumper. Which is my "always" criteria.

    Adam Putnam currently runs the division that in part issues Florida Concealed Carry permits

    DeSantis is my Congressman, and I am voting for him. Putnam was a decent Ag Commissioner but I don't trust his "conservatism."

    Putnam is a millionaire and DeSantis still owes student loans, if that makes any difference.

    I leaning toward DeSantis too. I saw he was questioning the
    Deputy AG Rosenstein in DC earlier in the day before the debate.

    I'm not familiar with DeSantis, but I'm also not a fan of the "smear" negative crapuity adds against him!

    But either one is 1000% better than the choices on the other side!

    So Putnam is successful and DeSantis can't pay his bills? That's how some would spin this! I don't have an opinion one way or another, just sayin'...

    DeSantis is a Trump supporter, don't we need him to stay in Congress?  Both DeSantis and Putnam have indicated support for the 2nd Amendment.

    Not really, it just means Putnam did REALLY well in Florida government and DeSantis is not a government leach.

    I believe those ads are lies. DeSantis is not a sellout to the open borders lobby.

    That smear tactic came from the left.

    Putnam has family money and investments.  His family money idms from orange groves. I dont know much about De Santis, but will before the election

    That makes sense. All I knew about him was that he is the AG Commissioner from Bartow, FL, and that is an agricultural area. I think he's an OK guy, I just prefer DeSantis.

    Either one will be way better than anyone who is running on the Democratic side.

    The TN Governor's race seems to mirror yours in FL. Both remind me of a song:
