IamA Tim Canova running as an independent against Debbie Wasserman Schultz in Florida's 23rd congressional district! AMA!
EDIT: Thank you everyone for the great questions. I thought this would go for an hour and I see it's now been well more than 2 hours. It's time for me to get back to the campaign trail. I'm grateful for all the grassroots support for our campaign. It's a real David vs. Goliath campaign again. Wasserman Schultz is swimming in corporate donations, while we're relying on small online donations. Please consider donating at https://timcanova.com/
We need help with phone banking, door-to-door canvassing in the district, waving banners on bridges (#CanovaBridges), and spreading the word far and wide that we're in this to win it!

Thank you again, and I promise I'll be back on for a big AMA after we defeat Wasserman Schultz in November ! Keep the faith and keep fighting for freedom and progress for all!
I am a law professor and political activist. Two years ago, I ran against Debbie Wasserman Schultz, then the chair of the Democratic National Committee, in the August 30, 2016 Democratic primary that's still mired in controversy since the Broward County Supervisor of Elections illegally destroyed all the ballots cast in the primary. I was motivated to run against Wasserman Schultz because of her fundraising and voting records, and particularly her close ties with big Wall Street banks, private insurers, Big Pharma, predatory payday lenders, private prison companies, the fossil fuels industry, and many other big corporate interests that were lobbying for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). In this rematch, it's exciting to run as an independent in a district that's less than 25% registered Republicans. I have pledged to take no PAC money, no corporate donations, no SuperPACs. My campaign is entirely funded by small donations, mostly online at: https://timcanova.com/ We have a great grassroots campaign, with lots of volunteer energy here in the district and around the country!
