When former Lt. Navy Commander and FL-18 candidate Pam Keith announced on Daily Kos back in March that she was running for Congress, I knew her name, but didn’t know her odds. The establishment didn’t back her run, and supported her primary opponent, which Keith beat almost 80% — 20%. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which went all in for the failed candidate they recruited in 2018, hasn’t given her one dime in support either. So how is she doing?
She is on fire right now.
- She raised nearly $1 million dollars for the third quarter—on her own
- She keeps racking up endorsements, including the Palm Beach Post on Oct. 10th
- New poll released today shows she’s ahead of Republican incumbent Brian Mast 45% — 43%
