There are two candidates in FL District 10, Who do you like?
Florida’s District 10 is between Calvin Wimbish (R) and Maxwell Frost (D). They each have their own qualifications and platforms. They both won their primaries and are in a heads up race for the November 8th, 2022, midterm election.
Maxwell Frost (D): On his website, www.FrostForCongress.com Frost states “I’VE DEDICATED MY LIFE TO FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE.”
Been a national leader in the fight to end gun violence and have helped passed major gun legislation that has saved lives.
Fought for abortion rights at the ACLU.
Led the ACLU of Florida’s fight to win Amendment 4, which restored voting rights to over 1.6 million Floridians who had previous felony convictions
Led a voter turnout program, that helped drive record youth turnout, helping to hold the House, and win a Democratic Senate, and Presidency
Helped secure an unprecedented five billion dollars in funding for community-based violence prevention programs in President Biden’s budget proposal
Col. Calvin Wimbish (R): According to his website, www.VoteCal2022.org, Col. Calvin Wimbish is Fighting for You and Our Values.
It’s time to fight for our nation, our freedoms, and our shared values. We can’t afford to send a weak, inexperienced person to Washington. Our nation faces serious challenges and it needs serious people to solve them. I’ve always been a fighter, and I won’t stop now.
He also states : I am not a politician. I’m a retired Green Beret Colonel, an unapologetic and fierce defender of the values that we all cherish – Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. I am battle tested and a proven leader. I’m ready to stand strong for everyone in District 10 and for America.
Pros and Cons
There are pros and cons to every candidate, and the Florida’s District 10 is no different. Generally speaking, the candidate’s personal experiences should be taken into account. However; it ultimately comes down to a matter of preference.
A couple of points to consider:
- Calvin Wimbish has spent more time in the military than the other Maxwell Frost has been alive. As a Retired Green Beret Colonel, Calvin Wimbish has proven his leadership qualities. He wants to make our country a better place for all of us now and for future generations.
- Maxwell Frost, while he is much younger, hasn’t experienced what it was like in during 9/11, and hasn’t had the pleasure to see when our country was united.
- Maxwell Frost has been on the political scene much longer than Col. Calvin Wimbish.
I ask you, do you want a politician, or someone that has a track record of leading and getting things done?
After doing some research on the candidates for Florida’s 10th Congressional District, we have to say that we’re impressed with both of them. Both Calvin Wimbish and Maxwell Frost have impressive resumes.
As a resident of Florida, ask yourself this. Would you rather have lost your job or continued to work, and provide for your family? Did you like the idea of wearing a mask, having a curfew and not being able to do anything, or was it better for you to continue living as normal and recover sooner?
I hope you enjoyed reading my thoughts on the FL District 10 race. It’s a close race, but I’m pulling for Col. Calvin Wimbish. His time as a Colonel has given him the experience to make tough decisions, and how to lead a team. Maxwell Frost hasn’t shown that yet, he may be a good talker, but as a leader, I don’t see it. Colonel Calvin Wimbish is the best candidate for the position, and will serve FL district 10 well. Thanks for reading, tune back in November 8th!
