Episode 468: 05-31-18
Jim Fried of Fried On Business talks to Nikki Fried, who has kept the Florida political class guessing for months about a possible statewide run for office. Florida Politics reports that sources close to Fried have confirmed that the Broward County-based political committee, Florida Consumers First, could likely be the first step toward a bid for Agriculture Commissioner. Fried has already said that, “Florida Democrats are tired of losing and are looking for a new voice: Someone different, someone who isn’t afraid to speak the truth and is willing to turn the political status quo on its head.”
Fried’s experience working with the medicinal cannabis industry could be the ticket to garnering support from millennials, agriculture interests and other sectors in her deep-blue South Florida home base.
Jim and Nikki discuss her record, the issues and why she may run.
