Florida U.S. Senate Democratic race Candidate Pam Keith is coming out of the shadows to fight for your vote
By K.L. Brown
The Democratic U.S. Senate race will have more than just two candidates on the ballot this Aug. 30th. Coming out of the shadows to win your vote is Pam Keith. You may hear more about her opponents Patrick Murphy and Alan Grayson who have more money and name recognition than Keith has, but she is making strides in making her candidacy known to Floridians.
Keith is rolling up her sleeves and driving all over Florida to spread the good news that she has a platform to energize voters to vote for her as the candidate of choice based on her ideals and not the typical political money machine choice. She believes that the Democratic Party needs to “recapture its soul and become more morally sound to benefit not just a few but everyone!” In a rousing speech at the end of the year state party convention held at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Convention Center in Orlando, to a room full of Democrats, Keith told the party affiliates, “We are a Party that has always stood in the gap for those who have been disenfranchised, marginalized and discriminated against. And now is the time to stand up for them!”
She listens to the frustrated voters who are not necessarily voting along party lines in making their decisions for who they want to elect. It is a mindset that is echoing in political arenas on all levels throughout the state and nation, where new candidates are making an appeal to fed-up Americans not voting for politics as usual.
This is where Keith may have an edge on her opponents, with the polls showing her presently with 11 percent support at the end of last month, and available support to win over the 31 percent Undecided and 15 percent other.
