Meet independent US Senate candidate Chris Borgia
Good afternoon and welcome to Last Call. Iâm Lisa Marzilli, joined by our engineer Alvaro Montealegre. Today weâre going to meet one of candidates vying to unseat incumbent US Senator Bill Nelson. If you read the papers youâre likely to think there are only 4 candidates in the running, 3 Republicans and Nelson - and if you listen to Connie Mack IV, only two. The reality is that there are 13 qualified candidates currently in the race; 5 of them are write-ins.
Our guest today is not a write-in and will appear on the November ballot. His name is Chris Borgia and heâs running as an independent. He is 33 years old, a native Floridian born in Fort Lauderdale. He attended Florida public schools and received a bachelor's in Political Science from the University of Florida. Heâs also a US Army Iraq war veteran. His platform - as youâll hear - is wide and varied and includes everything from the legalization of marijuana to eliminating all tax breaks for businesses. Chris Borgia, welcome to Last Callâ¦ itâs good to have you hereâ¦tell us why you are running for Senate.comments powered by Disqus
