How A Black Woman Running For Congress In Florida Might Just Win


Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Pam Keith on her election run.

Just over a month ago, Pam Keith won her Democratic primary race for Florida’s 18th Congressional district with an unprecedented 80% of the vote. The 18th district encompasses President Donald Trump’s Florida resort Mar-a-Lago.

Now, as Keith challenges Republican Congressman Brian Mast on November 3rd, the race appears to be tightening. Like Mast, Ms. Keith is a military veteran and could become the nation’s first black female veteran lawmaker. Unlike Mast, she is an unabashed progressive who backs Medicare-for-all, environmental justice, racial justice and more.

Pam Keith, Democratic Nominee for Florida’s 18th Congressional District, former U.S. Navy Lt. Commander. She previously ran for U.S. Senate in Florida in 2016.
