Daryl Campbell to succeed Bobby DuBose in HD 94

It is uncertain whether Campbell will be seated this Session as it is up to the discretion of House Speaker Chris Sprowls.

Daryl Campbell has won a four-way Special Democratic Primary contest to serve out the remaining term of Rep. Bobby DuBose in Broward County’s House District 94 on Tuesday.

Campbell, a former aide to DuBose, earned nearly 40% of the vote in the four-way contest, according to Tuesday’s unofficial results.

It was a winner-take-all Democratic Primary, as no other parties fielded candidates in the race. Josephus Eggelletion was second, winning 29% of the vote; Elijah Manley garnered 25% of the 11,745 votes cast for Tuesday’s Primary. Rod Kemp trailed with about 6% of the vote.

Turnout added up to 9% of the registered voters in HD 94. Voters did not have to be registered Democrats because it was a universal primary.

The Primary Election was triggered with the death of U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings last April while in office. DuBose and two other state lawmakers resigned to run –— and lost — in the congressional Primary Election.

Campbell, a behavioral therapist and social worker, led the pack in overall fundraising — raising a total of $74,799 for the race. He has also had the support of marquee Democratic names, such as Sen. Annette Taddeo, a Democratic candidate for Governor, and Tampa lawyer Sean Shaw, former Representative for House District 61.

He defeated Eggelletion, the scion of a Broward County political family. His father was Broward County’s first Black County Mayor, who also served eight years in the Florida House. The younger Eggelletion raised $61,605 in donations for this bid, winning the support of former Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes.

Manley was chronically homeless in his childhood and ran for Broward County School Board at age 19 in 2018, according to the Sun Sentinel. He also challenged DuBose for the HD 94 seat in 2020 and received 30% of the vote in the Primary. He raised $31,327 for this race and won the endorsement of the Sun-Sentinel.

Kemp, an ex-felon who had his rights restored, is an advocate for voting reforms. He raised the least among the four candidates, showing $5,806 in donations.

Even though there will be no Special General Election — and Campbell immediately wins the seat — it is uncertain whether the elected Representative of this district will be seated this Session.

Similar circumstances occurred when Rep. Dan Daley won a Special Election to represent House District 97 in Broward County in 2019. Then-House Speaker José Oliva declined to seat him. The current House Speaker Chris Sprowls did not return a text, email or phone call from Florida Politics about whether Tuesday’s winner in HD 94 would be seated and able to cast votes this Session, which began Tuesday.

HD 94 covers parts of Fort Lauderdale, Plantation and Wilton Manors. The district’s boundaries, however, are subject to change because of the state’s decennial redistricting process after this election.

Campbell will have to run again in November in a district that might shift due to redistricting.

Report: Justice Sonia Sotomayor Working Remotely Because Gorsuch Refuses to Wear Face Mask in Court

US Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is still working remotely because fellow justice Neil Gorsuch refuses to wear a face mask.

Triple vaxxed Sotomayor, 67, is overweight and has diabetes so she is at high risk for severe illness or death from Covid.

Someone should tell Sotomayor that a face mask is not going to stop her from getting Covid.

NPR reported:

It was pretty jarring earlier this month when the justices of the U.S. Supreme Court took the bench for the first time since the omicron surge over the holidays. All were now wearing masks. All, that is, except Justice Neil Gorsuch. What’s more, Justice Sonia Sotomayor was not there at all, choosing instead to participate through a microphone setup in her chambers.

Sotomayor has diabetes, a condition that puts her at high risk for serious illness, or even death, from COVID-19. She has been the only justice to wear a mask on the bench since last fall when, amid a marked decline in COVID-19 cases, the justices resumed in-person arguments for the first time since the onset of the pandemic.

Now, though, the situation had changed with the omicron surge, and according to court sources, Sotomayor did not feel safe in close proximity to people who were unmasked. Chief Justice John Roberts, understanding that, in some form asked the other justices to mask up.

A couple weeks ago Sonia Sotomayor falsely claimed that over 100,000 children are hospitalized and in serious condition because of Covid.

“Many are on ventilators,” Sotomayor said.

This is a lie and the Supreme Court still has not corrected the record.
