The primary IS the election in Legislative District 14 in Jacksonville, Florida. Kim Daniels is the Trump-supporting, right-wing, DEMOCRATIC incumbent in this dark blue district.

Trump’s doing the best he can to try to make his election about whiteness, and ax handles do have a meaning in the 1960s.
