Broward Young Democrats Clueless About Its Local Candidate Endorsements

Clueless Broward Young Democrats

While they perfected a pro-Chinese message on the Fourth of July, the Broward Young Democrats (BYD) seem clueless about their endorsements of local candidates. As REDBROWARD earlier this week, the BYDs social media account delivered an anti-American message on Independence Day. When a lone young Broward Democrat objected to the “devisive” messages, several young Broward Democrats pounced with more virulent anti-American screeds.

Now, it appears the BYDs incompetence extends beyond American history, political science and economics. In a Facebook post touting the BYD Convention next week, the next generation of Broward Democrat leadership cannot even figure out which candidates are running for which seat!

Under “BYD Endorsed Candidates,” the group backs Jasmen Rogers-Shaw as its pick in the Florida House District 93 seat. Just one problem, Rogers-Shaw is not running in the District 93 race. Kinda Thompson Gonzalez is the Democrat sacrificial lamb running against Republican Chip LaMarca, the strong District 93 incumbent.

Jasmen Rogers-Shaw, who recently revealed she contracted COVID-19, is running in the District 95 race. This district covers Lauderhill, Lauderdale Lakes and other parts of central Broward. Democrat Anika Omphroy is the current District 95 representative.

According to the graphic, the BYDs endorsed Shevrin Jones in the Florida House District 101 race.

Shevrin Jones

Just one problem. Shevrin Jones is NOT running in the District 101 race. Due to term limits, Jones is a heavy favorite to win a seat in the Florida Senate.

Joe Kimok wants to legalize drugs

When it comes to the Broward State Attorney race, the Broward Young Democrats cannot even make an endorsement. Instead the chose Harold Pryor, Joshua Rydell and uber-leftie Joe Kimok as their “Candidates of Distinction.”

How does the BYD back a challenger over an incumbent Democrat?

How do the BYDs not know it’s most popular elected official is running for a Senate seat?

Maybe they’re spending too much time researching Chinese ketchup?
