Florida investigating third party candidate who ran for Florida state senate

Source: The Hill

Florida prosecutors are probing a third-party candidate who ran for state Senate who has the same surname as the Democratic incumbent José Javier Rodríguez.

Jose Javier Rodríguez narrowly lost his seat against his Republican opponent and Latinas for Trump co-founder Ileana Garcia, who won by a razor-thin margin of .02 percent, or just 34 votes, the Washington Post reported.

Shortly after his concession speech, the incumbent released a video expressing alarm regarding the potential influence of an unknown third-party candidate Alex Rodríguez, who received 6,300 votes or 2.96 percent of votes for the District 37 seat.

"Democracy requires transparency," Rodríguez said in the video posted to Facebook. "In order to achieve that, I believe this election requires a full investigation so that those who may have violated the law are held to account and so that such tactics are not used in future elections."

3. Didn't all the swing states have a Donald G. Trump on the ballot?

People tell me that G. was funded by Soros.
