Last night, over 4,000 Libertarians in the State of Florida went out and voted in the historical statewide primary of the Libertarian Party of Florida's nomination for the U.S. Senate.
200 of those voters were in Miami-Dade County.
Congratulations to Paul Stanton. Mr. Stanton won decisively the primary and will be facing Marco Rubio and Patrick Murphy in November. We are ready to campaign with and for Paul Stanton to help defeat the Establishment and replace Senator Rubio in November. The next two months will be among the most exciting in our history.
We are also happy to learn that Amendment 4, the statewide constitutional referendum that would allow private companies to establish solar energy-producing devices on their properties without affecting their property tax payouts, passed handily with almost 73% of the vote in Florida. Our Miami-Dade County support showed its fruits when we learned that our county voted 74.2% in favor of Amendment 4. We are now ready to fight against Amendment 1 in November and make sure a real free market in solar energy comes to the Sunshine State.
In Miami Gardens, 78% voted in favor of the the Charter Amendment that would return control of the HardRock Stadium from Miami-Dade County to the City of Miami Gardens. That's 78% of voters that chose the Libertarian way.
In Sweetwater, 54% of the voters went with the Libertarian recommendation of approving the sale of an empty public land to avoid bankruptcy.
Last night was a night of celebration. But we are now hitting the ground for our next step, November. We have Amendment 1 to defeat, Amendment 2 to pass, a plethora of special elections to work on, and, of course, we need to make sure Gary Johnson wins Miami-Dade County and gets elected the next President of the United States. Finally, we will be continuing our Operation: CDD Takeover and ensure that Dennis Misigoy becomes our fifth local elected official as the next Supervisor of the Enclave at Black Point Community Development District.
Congratulations to all.
Let's get to work.
