Businessman and Trump Department of Defense appointee Cory Mills is poised to flip Florida’s 7th congressional seat to the Republicans in November after a bruising primary battle where he emerged victorious with nearly 38% of the vote in a 8-person race for the GOP nomination in the Central Florida area district currently held by J6 Committee member Stephanie Murphy. His closest competitor was State Representative Anthony Sabatini who finished with 23.6%.
Murphy, who this journalist has covered extensively since she was first elected in 2016, has been exposed for her ties to the Chinese Communist Party through her husband’s sportswear company which produces their products in a factory in China.
Congresswoman Murphy recently co-chaired a hearing of the political show trial known as the J6 Committee, where Democrats and phony globalist establishment Republicans like Liz Cheney have put on the performance of a lifetime as part of their efforts to persecute President Donald J. Trump and some of his top allies.
During her tenure, Murphy proclaimed to be a moderate, serving in leadership roles with the Blue Dog Caucus and the Problem Solvers Caucus. However, her voting record proved otherwise, as she voted with Nancy Pelosi nearly 100% of the time. Some of her more loony efforts in the United States Congress included wanting to blame the COVID-19 pandemic on President Trump (not the Chinese or cabal of scientists).
At one point, she even suggested that we reward the Chinese government in the early days of the pandemic by removing the tariffs imposed on the CCP controlled government by President Trump.
Yes, she actually did that.
Following a report by this journalist at TGP about her husband’s ties to the CCP through their family company, where Murphy currently holds several patents on sportswear she designed, Murphy announced that she would not be seeking another term in the 2022 mid-term elections.
Florida Democrats rallied behind Karen Green, a political organizer who currently serves as the Vice-Chairwoman of the Florida Democrat Party. She previously served in leadership roles on the Joe Biden campaign in 2020, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, and as a Field Organizer for Barack Obama. She won the Democrat primary with just about 45% of the vote in a four-way race, only raising and spending around $30,000.00
Republican voters had eight candidates to pick from in the August 23rd primary elections. The three leading candidates were businessman and Trump appointee Cory Mills, State Representative Anthony Sabatini, and Navy Seal Brady Duke. Local businessman Scott Sturgill, congressional staffer turned lobbyist Rusty Roberts, former Orange County Commissioner Ted Edwards, former DeBary City Commissioner Erika Benfield, and Al Santos rounded out the pack.
Mills consistently led the pack in polling in the lead up to the primary elections, raising and spending nearly $2m through his campaign. Brady Duke raised and spent slightly more than Mills, while State Representative Anthony Sabatini posted just over $1m total through the election.
Freedom Caucus members Congressman Jim Banks and Congressman Jim Jordan bet big on Mills, along with former White House Physician turned Congressman Ronny Jackson. The establishment wing of the GOP, people like Congressman Dan Crenshaw, threw their weight behind Brady Duke, as did out-of-state gambling big-wigs and DC political special interests.
The final month of the campaign saw hundreds of thousands in outside money and political knife-fighting, as reported by Florida journalist Javier Manjarres, who publishes The Floridian, which you can read about here. Manjarres alleged a series of last minute nastiness from one of Mills’ opponents.
In the end, Mills’ service in the Trump administration, hardline commitments to the America First agenda, and superb debate performances proved to be exactly what the GOP primary voters in Florida’s 7th congressional were looking for.
538.com, which tracks political races, gives predictions and handicaps, has stated that since recent redistricting, the 7th district has gone from +5 in Democrats favor to +14 for Republicans with the new district lines heading towards the general election this November.
Mills, who “The Squad” member Cori Bush tried to harass because his company provided non-lethal munitions like tear gas and rubber bullets to quell the BLM / Antifa “Summer of Love” riots, told this GP journalist in an exclusive quote that domestic terrorist groups like Antifa and BLM, along with the Biden Administration, will be top priorities of his when elected in November.
“I am honored to have earned the support of the voters from Florida’s 7th district. Our decisive victory by both Seminole and Volusia county demonstrates the voice of our district. Our campaign will continue the fight to advance the America First agenda President Trump represented, the Gov. DeSantis Free Florida policies, and our conservative values.
My family put up with a lot of negativity and long days on the campaign trail, for which I am eternally grateful, I could not have done this without them.
Now we focus on flipping Florida’s 7th district RED in November and wasting no time in holding the Biden administration, riotous groups like BLM and Antifa, Big Pharma, Big Tech, and the mainstream media accountable,” explained Mills.
In the recent days following his primary win, Mills appeared at a Republican Unity event alongside Governor Ron DeSantis, which was held within Florida’s 7th district (Geneva, Florida in Seminole County).
Barring George Soros dropping tens of millions of dollars to defeat GOP nominee Cory Mills between now and November, his general election matchup with Democrat nominee Karen Green will likely be performative, with Mills being sworn in to the United States Congress in January of 2023.
