MANATEE COUNTY – At least one political analyst feels that Florida’s governor’s race will be a predictor of the national outcome. Retired USF professor Susan McManus also told the Manatee Chamber that more voters want no party affiliation, and that, “As Florida goes, so goes the nation.”
She believes the governor’s race between U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, the Republican nominee, and Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, the Democratic nominee, will be the stronger polling magnet to bring voters to the polls. MacManus said the gubernatorial race is too close to call at this point.
Today(October 9th), is the final day to register to vote for the November 6th election.
