Liberal Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum scored a major upset victory in Florida's Democratic gubernatorial primary, running as a progressive pushing for single payer health insurance, abolishing the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency and impeaching President Trump. Gillum is supported by Vermont Democratic Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders and Democratic Socialist New York Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Some believe a growing number of Democrats may be trying to nudge the nation and the party in Bernie Sanders direction, something Todd Starnes said should be concerning to every Republican voter across America.
Todd Starnes began a recent program highlighting how socialism will become a major part of the Democratic party's playbook in the midterm elections.
"As we now know, socialism is on the rise. This is going to be a fascinating midterm election. This is going to be a battle royale and it's going to be Donald Trump vs. Bernie Sanders. And it's not exactly clear at this point who's going to win. Because it all depends on whether you get out to vote. And this is going to be a tough one," Starnes said.
