With ballots already hitting mailboxes, Nov. 3 isn’t as much Election Day as is this weekend and early next week.
Despite President Donald Trump’s calls for in-person voting and criticism of the election process as possible, or in some instances, likely, to be rigged, Florida Republicans have over-performed on vote-by-mail turnout for years, and this year is no exception. That’s especially true considering Trump offered an exception to his caution specifically to Florida voters.
Gov. Ron DeSantis, U.S. Sens. Rick Scott and Marco Rubio, among other high-ranking state Republicans are casting their ballots by mail and we know who they’re voting for.
Yet we have yet to hear from one of the state’s most prominent Republicans. He may not hold elected office anymore and his name might not come up as much as it once did, but former Gov. Jeb Bush is who history books will likely point to as the most important Florida Republican of this generation.
Consider Bush’s history with Trump.
