Angie Nixon calls HD 13 challenger a ‘DeSantis sidekick’

State Representative Angie Nixon is running for a new seat in House District 13 after the redistricting and her campaign highlights a contrast to her opponent, whom she describes as a “DeSantis sidekick”.

A new letter describes Nixon as “our defender” against the governor. Ron DeSantis featuring an illustration of the legislator flexing her biceps dressed in a Superman-style outfit.

If Nixon is the superhero of the story, the adversary Delaine Smith is the bad guy.

“A radical, anti-woman, anti-LGBT, Trump Supreme Court supporter, Smith will side with DeSantis and Republicans to destroy our basic rights. Delaine Smith wants to control who we love and how we manage our health by ending abortion without exception,” the post claims.

The claims here are presented alongside social media posts suggesting that Smith is out of step with the mainstream of the Democratic Party.

“I do not support the LBGT movement,” it read.

Another post touts the former president donald trumpSelection of Supreme Court judges Amy Coney Barrett as his “wisest decision yet”.

“This Democrat is praying for her,” Smith said at the time.

Nixon currently represents House District 14. She has approximately $50,000 on hand in her campaign account.

She won the election in 2020, beating the former state representative. Kim Danielswho attempts her own comeback, in HD 14. Nixon had statewide support when she unseated Daniels, a cabinet minister and conservative Democrat, in the primary that year.

Smith, a real estate agent who served as a real estate investigator for the state of Florida, said she was “good friends” with Daniels. When it launched in June, she said she wanted a “positive campaign”. Until now, the so-called “prophetess“didn’t mount a lot of campaign.

Smith only received $450 in donations. She loaned her campaign $12,000. His only expense so far was the Elections Division qualifying fee of $1,781.83.

A candidate with no party affiliation qualified for the ballot, closing this primary, which means only Democrats can vote. This would seem to benefit Nixon over his opponent. In 2018, an open primary in that district saw former Rep. Daniels defeat a Democratic challenger on the strength of out-of-party votes.
