As the Libertarian primary for U.S. Senate approaches, the candidates are stumping in Miami-Dade County to court the county's 1,145 registered voters that may participate on the August 30th primary.
On Friday, Augustus Invictus held an event in Coral Gables with North Central Community Councilman Keon A. Grayson to present his criminal justice reform plan. Mr. Invictus has said he will push his platform forward as Senator, a platform that includes restoring the right to vote for convicted felons, ending the War on Drugs, ending civil asset forfeiture programs, abolishing solitary confinement for minors in federal prisons, and other points that were endorsed by Councilman Grayson.
During that event, Mr. Invictus's camp registered new voters in preparation of the primary, as the deadline to change party registration to vote on August 30th is this Monday.
The next day, Paul Stanton hosted a luncheon with former Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County Chairman Robert Fernandez at the historical Cuban restaurant Versailles, where he met and greeted Libertarian voters from Miami-Dade and Broward Counties. Mr. Stanton spent his time answering questions about his platform and about his refusal to participate in a debate against Augustus Invictus.
Paul Stanton is currently leading the polls ahead of the primary. But in both a St. Pete Polls and a Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade County survey, the data shows that a great majority of Libertarians remain undecided and do not know anything about either candidate.
