Leading Florida Dem Candidate for Governor Abruptly Leaves Party

Just days ago, John Morgan was a Democrat leading polls to be governor in Florida.

Instead, he has left the party altogether.

This, along with revelations of nomination rigging by Donna Brazile and rampant sexual misconduct cases, is further proof of the unraveling of the left.

As reported by TampaBay

John Morgan, the pugilistic lawyer famous for his firm’s “For the People” advertisements, announced Friday morning that he will not enter Florida’s race for governor as a Democrat.

“While it’s amazing to be leading the polls for Governor without being a candidate I can’t muster the enthusiasm to run for the nomination,” Morgan, 61, tweeted.

But Morgan wrote the Times in an email that he still may run as an independent.

“I never say never,” Morgan wrote.

The lawyer went on to tweet that his decision to sit the race out was related to his disillusionment with politics in general — a departure considering his longtime political fundraising.

“I can’t muster enthusiasm for any of today’s politicians. They are all the same. Both parties,” Morgan tweeted. “I plan to register as an Independent and when I vote, vote for the lesser of two evils. And if I ever ran, run as an Independent.”

Morgan told the Times that “both political parties speak to the fringes and not to the people. #forthepeople.”

With vast personal wealth, considerable charm and charisma, and what was expected to be broad populist appeal, Morgan was widely seen as the strongest Democratic candidate for governor. A February Tampa Bay Times poll of Florida political insiders found that a plurality of respondents agreed.

His name recognition alone, built though years of TV ads throughout Florida, would have cost every other candidate tens of millions of dollars to achieve.
