It goes down to electability. I like Putnam but with Trump throwing support behind DeSantis, Putnam might have a steep hill to climb. Finally, anyone but a Democrat. They are all wolves and not in sheep’s clothing anymore.
Has Pres. Trump offered any reasoning as to why he chose DeSantis over Putnam? I would imagine he knows both of them, given the time he's spent in FL.

Bruce Nathan is viable candidate, he is a firm 2A supporter. I met him at the Tallahassee rally and after his speech, I had a chance to talk with him for a bit, then again, at the Sarasota 2A rally last month, I again talked to him. He puts Putnam and DeSantis to shame.

With enough people spreading his name and if they believe he's the choice and vote for him, it's possible. He's like Trump, he doesn't owe anyone and no one is in his pockets.

No to both. Nathan has no executive experience and his only political experience was running as an Independent candidate for US Senate in 2016. Betcha didn't hear of him then.
His so-called campaign is pure vapor. An exercise in egotism and in getting his name in the public record, even if its as a loser. [smilie=042.gif]

DeSantis is mostly in DC, and on Fox news Channel a lot. Putnam's in Florida. Only reason I can see.
Their stands on everything are close to identical, despite DeSantis' campaign lying and taking out of context Putnam's votes when he was in Congress.
Putnam has a proven 2A record, not just hot air.
Only Putnam's style is smoother and more attractive than DeSantis who comes across more abrasive and doctrinaire. Given that a lot of the public seems to only care about looks and feeling it gives Putnam an advantage in the general election.

And +1 on the Democrats. You might as well vote for Maduro or Kim Jong-un as any of them. Right now it looks like they want to run Gwendolyn Graham, as a "centrist" (no clenched fist salutes or red flags?) and the lamestream media is dumping on the other Democrats.

Jacksonville (Duval County) itself, is, by population. The surrounding areas might not be as much, though.

I would expect a close race if both parties avoid nominating obviously defective candidates. In Florida like 90% of the votes are already carved up 45/45. It is the other 10% being fought over.

“Gillum and King have both criticized Graham for not going far enough on gun control.”

Damn...I wonder what their platforms call for.

He doesn't have any statewide recognition though, and little backing from major groups. He won't make it through a primary this year.

You are probably right, but that is no reason not to vote your conscience in the GOP primary. Your vote there serves to tell the GOP what kind of candidates YOU want to see put up by the party. It is only after the primary that GOP voters should have to consider "holding their nose."

One of the bottom dwellers of the Democratic gubernatorial list, Chris King, wants to tax bullets to fund "epidemiological medical studies of gun violence."

He doesn't have the faintest idea of what he's talking about and is just parroting the gun control BS from the usual gun ban groups. As are the rest of the Democrats:

"Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum and former Congresswoman Gwen Graham want to ban assault rifles and high-capacity magazines, require background checks for all gun purchases and take away guns from those accused of domestic violence. Former Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine has called for a ban on assault rifles and also overturning a state law that prohibits cities and counties from enacting their own gun bans. King supports all those measures, too."
