FLORIDA STATUES REGARDING VACANCIES & SPECIAL ELECTIONS
http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&URL=0100-0199/0100/Sections/0100.111.html

Maybe someone can shed some light into this. I am not a Lawyer. The only thing I understand is that there apparently has to be 2 Weeks between the Special Primary Election and the Special General Election, usually it is more. In the last Florida Special Election to fill the Seat of now deceased Rep. Alcee Hastings the Special Primary was in November 2021 while the Special General was in January 2022.

MEDIA REACTS POSITIVLY TO PRESIDENT DESANTIS INAUGURAL ADDRESS EXCEPT FOR ONE PARTICULAR NETWORK WHO WENT OF THE RAILS; MCENANY REVEALS INTERESTING TWEET ON HER TWITTER MINUTES BEFORE SHE TOOK THE PODIUM IN THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS ROOM
Most of the Mainstream Media reacted positivly to President DeSantis Inaugural Address with even more liberal Political Analysts like Van Jones praising DeSantis Speech quote "While I disagree with many of DeSantis Policies he will likely implement during the next two year given the large Majorities Republicans have at least we did not hear the divisive rhetoric for him compared to former President Trump and I give him credit for that."
Outgoing CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer, whom this was the last Presidential Inauguration he attended as an Anchor of the Network quipped Anderson Cooper saying "Look, there was a lot misconception how President DeSantis would handle his first big moment as President and I think he did very, very well addressing the Nation and trying to bring the Country together." Gloria Borger, Incoming CNN Main Anchor Jake Tapper and Chief Washington Correspondent Dana Bash agreed with him.
On ABC a Special 2-Hour World News was presented from 6pm to 8pm ET with World News David Muir, ABC's LIVE Anchor Linsey Davis, Martha Raddatz, Chief White House Correspondent Cecilia Vega and THIS WEEK Anchor George Stephanopoulos all whom graded President DeSantis Address positivly. Vega made a shock Announcement at the end of the Broadcast announcing that after 15-Years working on ABC News Affiliates (KGO San Francisco) and then as ABC NEWS Weekend Anchor + Chief WH Correspondent she would leave the Network. Speculation surrounding her is that she replaces disgraced former WH Correspondent John Harwood at CNN with new CEO Chris Licht still reshuffling the CNN Lineup.
DeSantis drew the highest Ratings & positive grades understandably from FOX NEWS who had Special Coverage from 6pm to 10pm with Special Report Anchor Bret Bair, THESTORY Anchor Martha MacCallum, FOX NEWS SUNDAY Anchor Shannon Bream anchoring the Coverage and Hosts such as Maria Bartiromo, Neil Cavuto chiming in.
NBC NEWS & CBS NEWS followed similar Special Reports with Nightly News Anchor Lester Holt and CBS Evening News Anchor Norah O'Donnell anchoring those and DeSantis received positive grades there as well.
However NBC's Sister Network MSNBC did go off the rails. One particular soundbite from DeSantis Address drew the ire of Joy Reid, Anchor of READOUT who claimed DeSantis was calling out former President Joe Biden a KID referencing to DeSantis' Phrase "it's time for the adults to be put back in charge again" with other Hosts joining the Chorus. Reid claimed DeSantis would govern no different like how he governed in Florida saying "President DeSantis is a Trump Clone".

As the Morning of January 21st 2025 drew MSNBC's Morning Joe Host Joe Scarborough attempted to clean up the mess of the previous Night saying "President DeSantis is not as bad as some people claim he is. The guy won 420 Electoral Votes, let that sink in first before you criticize him".
On CNN the Network changed their Logo from "NEW DAY" to "NEW DAWN FOR AMERICA" with people in the know claiming that Chris Licht was likely behind it.
FOX NEWS aired a 4-Hour Special from 5am to 9am of FOX & FRIENDS with Ainsley Earhardt, Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmaede with various Guests chiming in.

As the 2pm Afternoon Hour drew incoming WH Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany revealed a Tweet she got from Arkansas Governor Sarah Sanders "@KayleighMcEnany: Couldn't be more prouder in seeing you back in the White House. Welcome Back Kayleigh! McEnany responded with Thanks, still continueing the work you started" in reference that Sarah Sanders was the 1st WH Press Secretary under former President Trump.
McEnany faced questions about former Texas Senator Ted Cruz' Confirmation as Attorney General as well as President DeSantis Executive Orders regarding repealing all COVID19 Restrictions and the Keystone XL Pipeline responding "We are trying to get people back to work for good paying jobs and more importantly trying to get ourselves out of that ditch & hole the previous Administrations have put us in".
Sources within the White House West Wing claiming Communications Director Christina Pushaw & other allies in the WH Comm loop pushing President DeSantis to do national televised address declaring the COVID-19 Pandemic rougly 5 years after the first COVID Death in the Country as over.
The other big Issue White House Sources claim is the Southern Border Crisis with some Sources speaking under the condition of anonym that President DeSantis is likely tap his Vice President Nikki Haley as Border Czar (the same Position former Vice President Kamala Harris had in the Biden Administration).

While official Washington and the nation reacted to President DeSantis and the First Lady hosted a coffee morning for the many visitors who received invitations to meet the President. After which both DeSantis and Haley and members of the incoming attended a ecumenical service of thanksgiving at the National Cathedral. The president and Vice President attended and presided over swearing in ceremonies for White House staffers, including incoming White House Chief of Staff, Byron Lowell Donalds and the new National Security Advisor,  Dina Powell McCormick.  Those cabinet members who received quick, easy and unanimous confirmation included Secretary of State, Robert Charles O'Brien , Secretary of the Treasury, David Harold McCormick ,  who's wife happens to be the National Security Advisor, and finally Secretary of Defense, Kenneth Braithwaite,  they all were sworn into office in the Oval office, the oaths of office being administered by Vice President Haley . There was tense moments in the White House Press Room, as White House Press  Secretary  Kayleigh McEnany was confronted by the press regarding the fitness of Ted Cruz, to be Attorney General, in scenes reminiscent of when then White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer   was involved in a disagreement with the press corps over the size of the crowds of Former President Donald Trump's inauguration. The confirmation of Ted Cruz would proceed, "No matter what made up controversies of our opponent's!" It appeared the honeymoon was coming to an end!
Next: Democratic resistance to Ted Cruz increases!

Is that even possible to confirm a Secretary of State (O'Brien), Secretary of Treasury (McCormick), Secretary of Defense (Braithwaite) unanimously via voice vote? I will have to check on this. Even if one Senator objects Cornyn has to hold a Floor Vote according to Senate Rules.

DEMOCRATS IMPRESSED WITH YOUNGKIN, SASSE AS CORNYN FILES FOR CLOTURE; AT LEAST 10 REPUBLICAN SENATORS OPPOSING CRUZ NOMINATION TO BECOME ATTORNEY GENERAL
While the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina and the Ranking Member of the Judiciary Committee, Senator Chris Coons of Delaware spared over the Nomination of Ted Cruz as Attorney General on FOX NEWS SUNDAY Senate Majority Leader John Cornyn and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer sat down with CNN's Chief Washinngton Correspondent Dana Bash on STATE OF THE UNION to discuss matters such as Nominations and other impending Legislations that will have to be tackled.
Schumer quipped: "Look Dana, just because we both are sitting on different sides of the Political Spectrum that doesn't mean I have to live in constant conflict with the other side. We already have made great progress to confirm the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Defense with a deal I've reached with the Senate Majority Leader even before President DeSantis took the Oath of Office last Monday. Just yesterday we confirmed Rep. Brian Mast as Secretary for Veterans Affairs and Rep. Carlos Gimenez to the Department of Homeland Security and will keep confirming those Individuals and Governor Youngkin & Senator Sasse have been very impressive in the hearings."
Cornyn agreed saying "I also filled cloture on Governor Youngkin to be our Commerce Secretary and Senator Sasse as our Secretary of Education."

THE 10 REPUBLICAN SENATORS WHO PUBLICLY SAID THAT THEY WILL OPPOSE TED CRUZ NOMINATION AS ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES

Dan Sullivan of Alaska
Ben DuPont of Delaware
Susan Collins of Maine
Rick Bennett of Maine
Michelle Tafoya of Minnesota
Chuck Morse of New Hampshire
Mehmet Öz of New Jersey

Mitt Romney of Utah
Jill Vogel of Virginia

FORMER DEMOCRATIC REP FRANK MRVAN AND REP CLAUDIA TENNEY DISCUSS THE COMPLETE EASING OF COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS ON ABC'S THIS WEEK HOSTED BY CHRIS CHRISTIE & GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS
While much of the Sunday News Shows were anchored around President DeSantis' Cabinet Nominations especially for former Texas Senator Ted Cruz on ABC'S THIS WEEK, which was for the first time hosted by George Stepanopoulos & former New Jersey Governor Former Indiana Congressman Frank Mrvan and Rep. Claudia Tenney discussed DeSantis' Executive Order to ease all COVID-19 Restrictions.
Tenney & Mrvan were the Architects of getting Pandemic Restrictions eased especially for unvaccinated Foreign Travellers trying to gain Entry into the Country and introduced Legislation in Congress during 2023 which passed both Houses but was vetoed by then President Joe Biden.
Mrvan said:"That was the most ridiculous thing President Biden ever did. There was no need to keep these Restrictions until the very last moment of his Presidency. I am glad President DeSantis reversed this immediatedly when he took Office." Tenney agreed "An Unvaccinated Individual doesn't pose a Threat to the Nations Health System with the Pandemic now in the very rear mirror of our lives."

I've changed the Dates a bit for the Special Elections in FL because 3 Months between the Primary and the General is a little bit long, don't you think?

Actually that is a pretty good suggestion, so yep let's go April 22 it sounds more tangible when one thinks about it; actually I'm looking for possible contenders to run in those particular district's.

For FL-19, I'd suggest (former) State Senator Kathleen Passidomo for the Republicans. No clue for the Democrats.

For FL-21 I'd suggest State Representative Dana Trabulsy for the Republicans. No idea for the Democrats

For FL-28, I would recommend State Senator Ana Maria Rodriguez for the Republicans, and former State Senator Annette Taddeo for the Democrats.
FL-28 will be pretty crowded on the Republican Side: Miami Mayor Suarez, former Rep. Curbelo are very much in the mix as well.

SaintStan86,
In Virginia it depends entirely if former Rep. Scott Taylor runs for the Republicans.

Sununu did not run either against Shaheen in 2020 or Hassan in 2022 because of Donald Trump. With Trump becoming more and more irrelevant and President DeSantis having taken over the Republican Party I think Sununu runs.

That is an inspiring idea, regarding the Joint session date! Was that the date of the first fatality? Frankly lost track of dates. With regards to the Senate contests during the 2026 election cycle,  I think Warner in Virginia, could face a stronger than expected challenge from Scott Taylor . However the Governorship contests could reveal a few surprises. I would think that actor Matthew McConaughey might throw his hat into the Governor's race in Texas. Greg Abbott could be vulnerable. Another Governor's contest that could prove to be interesting is Massachusetts, where Tagg Romney might run, following in his dad's footsteps. I am tempted to have either Stephanie Murphy  or Debbie Wasserman Shultz challenge Jeanette Nuñez in Florida.
First Fatality was February 29th 2020 in Seattle, Washington State.

Wednesday 29th January 2025
SENATE CONFIRMS VIRGINIA GOVERNOR GLENN YOUNGKIN AS SECRETARY OF COMMERCE; NEBRASKA SENATOR BEN SASSE AS SECRETARY OF EDUCATION...NEBRASKA GOVERNOR PILLEN LEANING TOWARDS APPOINTING FORMER GOVERNOR DAVE HEINEMAN AS PLACEHOLDER
The United States Senate today confirmed President DeSantis' Nominations of Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin as Secretary of Commerce by a whopping 85-15 Vote with 20 Democrats joining to confirm as well as Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse as Secretary of Education with an 83-16 Vote (Sasse himself abstained and did not vote for himself).
NBC'S Chief Legal Analyst Pete Williams noted "While there is growing Resistance to the Ted Cruz Nomination as Attorney General, which could be defeated, the other Nominations by President DeSantis have been confirmed with overwhelming Bipartisan Support."
Sources inside the Cornhusker State telling CNN that Nebraska Governor Jim Pillen is leaning towards appointing former Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman as Placeholder until a Special Election can be held.
Thursday January 30th 2025
YOUNGKIN RESIGNS AS GOVERNOR, SASSE RESIGNS AS SENATOR; VIRGINIA LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR WINSOME SEARS TAKES OVER AS GOVERNOR IN VIRGINIA
Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin resigned his Governorship as Governor of Virginia after being confirmed by the Senate as Secretary of Commerce yesterday. Shortly thereafter he watched his Lt. Governor Winsome Sears being inaugurated becoming the 75th Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia before making his trip back to Washington.
In Washington Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse summitted his Resignation to the Senate after being confirmed on the same Day as Youngkin.
Friday January 31st 2025
VICE PRESIDENT NIKKI HALEY ADMINISTERS THE SWEARIN-IN FOR YOUNGKIN TO THE DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE & SASSE TO THE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION
Two Days after being confirmed as new Secretaries of Commerce & Education Glenn Youngkin & Ben Sasse took the Oath of Office administered by Vice President Nikki Haley.

The Reason the Cruz' Nomination was defeated is that due to President DeSantis' landslide Victory in the 2024 Presidential Election a lot of moderate Republican Senators in more blueish States were elected and they wanted to put the controversial 2020 Election behind themselves once at for all.

However Cruz' Defeat raises serious Questions about Ric Grenells Nomination to be Ambassador to the United Nations.


While this is obviously a heavy blow for Conservatives and a short-term blow for the President it might very well be a long-term GAIN for the DeSantis Presidency.

Monday February 3rd 2025
AFTERMATH OF THE FAILED CRUZ' NOMINATION AS ATTORNEY GENERAL; ABC'S LEGAL ANALYSTS PIERRE THOMAS & DAN ABRAMS SAY:"IT RAISES SERIOUS QUESTIONS ABOUT RIC GRENELLS NOMINATION AS AMBASSADOR TO THE UNITED NATIONS"
FORMER SOCILITOR GENERAL NOEL FRANCISCO & UNITED STATES JUDGE FOR THE 11TH COURT OF APPEALS BARBARA LAGOA UNDER CONSIDERATION

On ABC'S "Good Morning America" with Robin Roberts Legal Analysts Pierre Thomas & Dan Abrams say Ric Grenells Nomination as Ambassador to the United Nations is on "THIN ICE".
Later that Day NBC Chief White House Correspondent Kristen Welker confirmed Francisco & Lagoa were under consideration to be nominated for Attorney General with Lagoa being viewed as having the Inside Track because of her Ties to the President (DeSantis nominated Lagoa to the Florida State Supreme Court in 2019).

I definitly would nominate Lagoa. She would be a good Pick. It would sent a Message to a constituency DeSantis & Republicans in General had made huge inroads in 2022 & 2024.

Lagoa won her Senate Vote to be a Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit by an 80-15 Vote back in November 2019.
That has to play in DeSantis' Mind. What the President needs is now a safe Pick for Attorney General who can roll through the Senate. Picking another Trump Alum certainly doesn't help.
One Wild Card is current Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody.

CNN BREAKING NEWS
PRESIDENT DESANTIS INTENDS TO NOMINATE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS JUDGE FOR THE 11TH DISTRICT BARBARA LAGOA AS ATTORNEY GENERAL CNN HAS LEARNED

Jake Tapper: This is just in: CNN has just learned that President Ron DeSantis intends to nominate Judge Barbara Lagoa of the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th District as his Attorney General. Let's go over quickly to Kaitlan Collins.

Kaitlan Collins: That's right Jake! We just received this News. This is obviously not a big surprise as the President needed someone who can safely sail through the Senate Confirmation. It is interesting to note that Lagoa, if confirmed, would only be the 2nd Woman ever to assume the Office of Attorney General after the late Janet Reno during the Clinton Administration. She would also the 1st Cuban Hispanic Woman to hold that Office. We're also learning that the President intends to nominate Noel Rodriguez as Deputy Attorney General.
I am told there will a News Announcement tomorrow evening in the East Room of the White House. Back to you!

Friday February 7th 2025
NBC NEWS AIRS MIDDAY SPECIAL REPORT AHEAD OF PRESIDENT DESANTIS ANNOUNCEMENT IN THE WHITE HOUSE EAST ROOM LATE THIS AFTERNOON TO NOMINATE BARBARA LAGOA AS HIS CHOICE FOR ATTORNEY GENERAL; EXPERTS LIKE CHUCK TODD, ANDREA MITCHELL NICOLLE WALLACE & EUGENE ROBINSON WEIGH IN HOW THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IS DIVERSIFYING
Lester Holt: Good Afternoon! I am Lester Holt of NBC NEWS and welcome to this Special Report. 5 Days after former Texas Senator Ted Cruz withdrew his Nomination for Attorney General President Ron DeSantis is set to make a groundbreaking Announcement late this Afternoon to officially announce that he has tapped United States Court of Appeals Judge BARBARA LAGOA as his Choice for Attorney General.

Savannah Guthrie: Judge Lagoa would only be the 2nd Woman to occupy this Office after the late Janet Reno in the Clinton Administration. We have Chuck Todd, Andrea Mitchell, Nicolle Wallace and Eugene Robinson here with us to weigh in. Chuck, set the stage for us!

Chuck Todd: Lester, Savannah this feels big. However if you look at our Board who is already confirmed in the DeSantis' Administration is does set a Trend: Byron Donalds, Tim Scott, Carlos Gimenez and of course his Vice President Nikki Haley not to mention that Jeanette Nuñez & Winsome Sears took Governorships in Florida & Virginia. Todays Late Afternoon Announcement is probably the most consequential one since the he announced Haley as his Running Mate last Summer.
You know before we came on air here I stumbled accross a Clip from FOX NEWS and what Brit Hume said last Night. Watch:

(Clip from Brit Hume at FOX NEWS talking how the Republican Party is diversifying)

You know Lester, Savannah, God Bless him. He saw this happening waaay before we did last year and the Election Results speak for themselves. The Point he is making is that DeSantis is taking the Republican Party on a very different path then even Ronald Reagan or George W. Bush making it more dynamic & inclusive, bringing in more Minorities, etc. And I tell you what Lester: This will keep continueing until Democrats find a good answer to it. We basically have a National Border Crisis that hasn't been resolved and Voters especially in Hispanic Communities are fed up with this.

Lester Holt: Nicolle, you seem to want to jump in here?

Nicolle Wallace: To Chucks & for the matter Brit Humes Point: This is how we, Republicans, always wanted our Party to be, more diverse & inclusive. We had buoyers remorse when John McCain got only 33 % of the Hispanic Vote and Mitt Romney had only 27 %. Of Course then Donald Trump came and threw us some curveballs into our path but now DeSantis seems to have charted for us the right path forward and Judge Lagoa fits into this perfectly. Democrats ignored the warning signs when DeSantis tapped Haley as his Running Mate which was the first sign what could be coming and kept doing their thing. Guess what: They got burned for it!

Eugene Robinson: The Democratic Party has to refind themselves first before they can start an effective Opposition. Maybe it is time to reach out to those folks who voted for Andrew Yang & Adam Kinzinger last year particularly their Economic Platform which was very appealing to Voters. The thing is with his 6.5 % he got his "Forward Party" is now eligible in all 50 States since he crossed the 5 % threshold but no effort has been made.

Lester Holt: Thank You all and we will see you in a few hours.
