Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell’s reelection chances were already starting to go down the drain.
First, CLF released a poll showing her losing. And now, The Floridian reports that the Congresswoman’s partisan and extreme voting record may “seal her fate and usher in Gimenez as the newest member of congress in this district.”
According to The Floridian, “Mucarsel-Powell has voted 93% of the time with Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez” and “with Speaker Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time.”
No wonder the Lugar Center says Mucarsel-Powell is one of the least bipartisan Members of Congress.

Mucarsel-Powell’s Voting 100% With Pelosi Could Hurt Her Re-Election
August 2, 2020
Because she only won her race by less than 2-percentage points against then-Congressman Carlos Curbelo (R), Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D) knew that her re-election to the House of Representatives was going to be very difficult considering that her congressional district is listed as a “Toss-up” by The Cook Political Report.
In a fundraising email sent out by Rep. Mucarsel-Powell’s campaign, Team DMP references that The Cook Report has “officially” called Florida’s 26th congressional district a “COMPLETE TOSS-UP!”
Mucarsel-Powell is saying that Cook is now reporting what they knew all along, but the truth is that this seat has always been considered a “toss-up.”
Mucarel-Powell has already called Gimenez “corrupt” but will her progressive voting record could seal her fate and usher in Gimenez as the newest member of congress in this district.
According to Propublica.com, Mucarsel-Powell has voted 93% of the time with Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and with the rest of “The Squad” – Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley – 94% of the time.
‘DMP’ has also voted with Speaker Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time.
The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) has already been pelting Mucarsel-Powell over her voting record, so expect Gimenez to do the same in the coming months.
