Florida History Information - Every Florida Senate Candidate Should Know

According to popular legend, unlikely to be true, Juan Ponce de León discovered Florida while searching for the Fountain of Youth. Although it is often stated that he sighted the peninsula for the first time on March 27, 1513, and thought it was an island, he probably saw one of the Bahama islands.[8] He landed on the east coast of the newly discovered land on April 2. He named the land La Pascua Florida, or "Flowery Easter," probably due to the abundant plant life in the area or to the fact that he arrived during the Spanish Easter feast, Pascua Florida.

Ponce de León may not have been the first European to reach Florida, as he claimed he encountered at least one Indian who could speak Spanish [9] Ponce de León returned with equipment and settlers to start a colony in 1521, but they were driven off by repeated attacks from the native population. The earliest records of inland Florida are those of conquest survivors. Pánfilo de Narváez's expedition explored Florida's west coast in 1528 but was lost at sea upon his attempted seaward escape to Mexico.

One of his expedition's officers, Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, survived nine years' trudging between Florida and Mexico, returned to Spain and published his observations. He inspired Hernando de Soto's invasion of Florida in 1539. Members of his expedition later published details of Florida's natives, their lifestyles and behavior. In 1559 Tristán de Luna y Arellano established a brief settlement in Pensacola but after a violent hurricane destroyed the area it was abandoned in 1561

Wasserman Schultz has 10-point lead over challenger Canova, poll shows

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has a 10-point lead over challenger Tim Canova, a South Florida Sun Sentinel/Florida Atlantic University poll shows, as the candidates approach the Democratic primary finish line.
The incumbent was preferred by men, older voters, people who voted for Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary, and those with a favorable view of President Barack Obama. Women also supported Wasserman Schultz, but not as strongly as men.

The challenger was ahead with younger voters, people who wanted Bernie Sanders to win the presidential nomination, and those who have an unfavorable view of Obama.

The Democratic congressional primary between Wasserman Schultz and Canova is Aug. 30; voting by mail and in-person early voting is underway.

The Business and Economics Polling Initiative surveyed 400 likely Democratic voters in the 23rd Congressional District for the Sun Sentinel from Wednesday through Friday. The margin of error for the poll, which was conducted by an interactive voice response system, is plus or minus 5 percentage points, said Monica Escaleras, director of the polling initiative.

The district is so overwhelmingly Democratic that the winner of the Canova-Wasserman Schultz primary is virtually guaranteed to win the November general election.

For Wasserman Schultz, 2016 has been the most challenging year of her 25 years in public life. She has a well-funded primary challenger, was criticized for months by Sanders, and resigned her position last month as chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee.

Still, Democratic voters in the 23rd District view her positively. She is seen favorably by 58 percent of the Democratic voters in the Sun Sentinel/FAU poll and unfavorably by 35 percent, a net positive of 23 points.

Just 7 percent said they were undecided or had never heard of Wasserman Schultz, who is serving her sixth term in Congress and spent more than five years as chairwoman of the national party.

Canova, a professor of law and public finance at Nova Southeastern University who has never before run for public office, was viewed favorably by 46 percent and unfavorably by 22 percent, giving him a net positive of 24 points.
