Ted Deutch and Javier Manjarres

Javier 'the Shark' Manjarres Sounding More Like a Ted Deutch Opponent in CD 22

When asked, Javier Manjarres, managing editor of conservative blog site The Shark Tank, wouldn't confirm he's making a run for U.S. Rep. Ted Deutch's CD 22 seat, but he did sound like a man with a bone to pick with Democrat Deutch -- and a "probable" opponent for the incumbent.

Florida’s political history has been shaped by many different people -- the French, English, Spanish, Cuban, African-American, Puerto Rican, Yankees, Southerners and more.

Pompeo's first job is to make sure Trump understands one thing going into those talks: North Korea has no plans to give up its nuclear weapons at the negotiating table.
In the final weeks of the 2018 legislative session, immense tragedy struck a quiet community right here in our state. Our elected officials rightfully focused their remaining time and energy on ensuring school safety and addressing mental health issues in the wake of the Parkland school shooting.
