Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Wow.  Just WOW.  First I hear Charlie Crist is losing his mind, now this Nan Rich is running as well?  Let me be CLEAR about this:  So long as I'm Governor of Florida, Crist and Rich are down here, I'm UP here!  And that's the way it's going to be!
Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist may be stealing all the spotlights in his race to win the Democratic nomination to run vs. vulnerable incumbent Governor Rick Scott for Governor of Florida.

However, that's not stopping fellow Democratic Candidate Nan Rich from continuing on with her campaign considering the Florida Primary Election for 2014 is held August 26, 2014.

Tomorrow, March 13th, Nan Rich and her campaign are hosting a phone bank at the El Portal Village Hall in Miami, FL.  Details of the phone bank event are as follows:


Date: Thursday, March 13
Time: 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

El Portal Village Hall
500 NE 87th St
Miami, FL 33138


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

Here's Nan Rich in an interview on Facing South Florida CBS:

Rich recently came out strongly opposing school vouchers, which appears to be what Charlie Crist, even as a non-Democratic Candidate, supports, along with Rick Scott:


“My position on vouchers has always been crystal clear,” said Rich. “I opposed them when Republican Gov. Jeb Bush introduced them. I opposed them when Republican Gov. Charlie Crist expanded them. I oppose expanding them now. Vouchers allow public money to go to private schools and that’s just not right – period.”

“That’s simply bad public policy -- it’s bad for public schools, bad for teachers, and bad for students,” Rich said. “Gov. Scott said he is ready to sign the bill to expand the voucher program as soon as the bill gets to his desk. I wouldn’t. As governor, I would veto this bad legislation -- without hesitation.”

Based on Nan Rich's point of view on the issues, per her website, she's very much progressive and lists stances on the following issues:


Anti-Voting Disenfranchisement (obviously it's a big issue in FL)
Pro-Marriage Equality
Pro-Medicare Expansion
Pro-Public Education and education in general
