Election Qualifying

June 14th, 2010 by flanews

The 2010 political season is officially underway in Florida.

At noon today, qualifying for the general election and August primaries began. The distaste for incumbents continued, as the first two candidates through the door were running with no party affiliation. 23-year old Miranda Rosenberg is running for state senate seat 25.

Im running because politics shouldnt be a mud wrestling match. Its not a sports game. Its not something where one team loses and one team wins. Im running because Im running for the people of district twenty-five. And because Floridas future needs a voice. This is a future Ill be living in, said Rosenberg.

Farid Khavari, an economist from Miami, left the Democratic party to run for governor as an independent.

The party was kind of unfair. They have taken the right of it from the voters. They have anointed the candidates and they have not given the equal chance to all other candidates too. And thats why I think I prefer to go as an independent, said Khavari.

Qualifying ends at noon Friday.
