REDBROWARD recommends Broward voters support Republican Marco Rubio and Democrat Pam Keith in the upcoming US Senate primary election. Rubio and Keith are far superior to their primary opponents. Rubio is running against Sarasota businessman Carlos Beruff, while Keith is facing a pair of DC Congressmen, Alan Grayson and Patrick Murphy.

Even though Senator Marco Rubio came up short in the Republican Presidential primary, he has still been at the forefront of issues affecting Florida. Rubio was one of the earliest voices calling for a massive response to the Zika virus. Now, the virus has spread to numerous cities including Miami, Miami Beach, and Tampa. Rubio continues to urge Washington lawmakers to put politics aside and match the Zika fighting efforts of Governor Rick Scott.

Carlos Beruff has been featured on REDBROWARD several times. While he has excellent ideas to help Florida’s economy, Beruff would be learning on the job about other serious issues including the war on terror. Florida needs the steady leadership of Senator Marco Rubio.

In the Democrat primary, REDBROWARD urges voters to support US Navy veteran Pam Keith. Keith, a NAVY JAG officer, now specializes in labor law. We were impressed with an interview she gave us last year regarding Middle East issues. While in the NAVY, Keith served in the Middle East in many important top-level positions. Unfortunately, the media and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz’s DNC has all but ignored Keith. Instead they focused on the empty suit known as Congressman Patrick Murphy. The two term Congressman who barely beat Allen West four years ago, is not ready for prime time. A recent expose by CBS 4 Miami showed gaping holes and lies in the Murphy resume.

Congressman Alan Grayson should never get close to the US Senate chamber.

In its recent endorsement of Pam Keith, The Miami Herald said, “This long-shot candidate brings one of the freshest perspectives to Florida politics heard in a long time. She is accomplished, credible — and has been left out in the cold by state Democratic leaders and her two better-known opponents. And that, too, is a shame for democracy.”

“Ms. Keith has an engaging personality and a world view that cuts through that political fog. She’s a realist and knows she’s a long-shot, but makes a good case for the seat she’s pursuing: ‘The military, foreign policy, labor policy — these are federal issues,’ she told the Editorial Board. ‘I know the federal sphere.'”
