Are Florida Democrats sabotaging this critical state senate race?

For the past two decades, there’s one thing the Florida Democrats have gotten really good at: losing.

Polls Showed Nearly a Sea of Blue Before October Surprise

We don’t know how Trump’s infection by Covid-19 will affect the presidential race which has remained incredibly stable for more than a year.
