Congressman Daniel Webster will be kicking off his reelection campaign next week, in his home town of Winter Garden, looking to earn another term from from the voters of Florida’s 10th Congressional District.
Webster has faced some mean opposition in previous that has revolved around heavy negative attacks from his opponents. In 2010, it was Alan Grayson (who ironically is now his colleague) who launched the infamous “Taliban Dan” ad which featured heavily doctored video of Webster. In 2012 former Orlando police chief Val Demings also took to the attack, accusing him of being too close to lobbyist. She also received millions of dollars in campaign donations from outside of Florida.
This time it will be scrappy Navy Vet Michael “Mac” Mckenna who will meet Webster in the November general. McKenna came out of no where to win the Democratic primary on Tuesday with a strong grassroots game. That will likely be his approach this time.
He’ll once again be a heavy underdog. Webster supporters are arguably the most loyal in Central Florida, and his campaign revolves around efforts on the ground. It won’t be long before you see blue and white canvassing neighborhoods.
