270 Strategies' Lynda Tran was on CBSN this morning to break down the stunning primary elections in FL and AZ:
"Florida is a place that is more of a battleground than we've seen across the country. Donald Trump won there in 2016 but it was a a squeaker at just over 1 percent and of course Barack Obama won there in 2012 with just under 1 percent. It is a state that is walking the line between the parties. When you think about the general election electorate, Ron DeSantis has got to be concerned about those Independents and those moderate Republicans who may not be so excited about the fact that he has bear-hugged Donald Trump and those who might be really excited about the idea of a history-making candidate such as Andrew Gillum."
"What's interesting about Arizona is in the same way that Florida is a squeaker, Arizona is another state where there is a very strong middle, a strong independent mindset that may be interested in supporting a Democrat -- there is definitely a shot there for Kyrsten Sinema and certainly a place that Democrats are going to continue to focus. Similar to Florida, Martha McSally has been someone who was very much trying to align herself with Donald Trump. And that plays well in a Republican primary situation, but may not play so well again with a general election electorate with people who are turned off by Donald Trump's caustic style and some of these other significant issues that have been raised over the last 18 or so months."
