More than a half dozen candidates seeking to unseat the pro-impeachment Democrat have accepted the Orlando Republican Women’s Federated invitation to a debate they are hosting at Dubsdread Golf Course on January 10th.

Billed as “Murphy Madness”, the Orlando Republican Women’s Federated will use their first meeting of 2020 to allow over a half-dozen GOP candidates for Florida’s 7th congressional district to showcase to party activists why they are the best person to for the job.
So far, nine Republicans filed either with the state or the Federal Election Commission to run in the primary. They range in age from 24 to 81 and have a wide variety of backgrounds and experience.
One already has dropped out. The GOP primary is Aug. 18. The general election is Nov. 3. Orlando Republican Women Federated (ORWF) is hosting the first Republican CD7 Debate of 2020.
All candidates are welcome and encouraged to come and debate. For Questions or Concerns please email: BrittanyCorfman@gmail.com
Sources tell the Central Florida Post that ORWF see this debate as a “public service” to voters and want to use it as a way to separate the contenders from the pretenders in CD7’s race to replace Pelosi ally and pro-impeachment Democrat Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy.
In her first two terms in congress, Murphy has proclaimed to be a “moderate” and has even been selected to lead the allegedly “moderate” Blue Dogs Caucus, though her voting record shows a disturbingly dedicated allegiance to Pelosi’s far-left policies.
The race so far includes leading contenders Leo Valentin, Vennia Francois, Richard Goble and handful of lesser-known candidates. There is speculation among Republican leaders that a dark-horse candidate with the ability to self-fund could enter the race within the next few months.
