California, South Carolina, North Carolina, New York, Louisiana, Tennessee, Delaware, Colorado, Massachusetts, Virginia, Texas, Maryland, Georgia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Washington, DC.

These may all be nice places — but why are people from these states contributing to the campaign of a candidate for the Jacksonville City Council?

The campaign contribution report of Tracye Polson shows contributions from all these places.

It also contains the names of many Far Left Democrats in Jacksonville, of course. Polson is a liberal Democrat and her opponent is conservative Republican Nick Howland.

In addition to pouring more than $100,000 of her own money into her campaign, which has reported nearly $425,000, she also is getting money from other cities in Florida and contributions from all over the nation. Yet she virtually was unknown in Jacksonville until she filed to run.

In the first election in December, with two Democrats and two Republicans on the ballot in the citywide race, Polson racked up a meager 632 more votes than Howland.

Polson is a social worker who moved to Jacksonville in 2010. She ran for the Florida House unsuccessfully four years ago.

The local Fraternal Order of Police does not support her, although Polson promises she will prioritize public safety and “create solutions to the causes of crime.” She claims that the number one cause of crime is poverty, which is debatable. Nor has anyone else been able to fashion solutions to crime that produce significant results — except for the tried and true method of putting criminals in prison.

She also pledges to end City Hall corruption, which is a standard Democrat pledge during a Republican administration and means nothing.

Her platform specifically promises support for people with black skin and homosexuals. Presumably, people with other skin colors and heterosexuals will be ignored.

Polson’s radical ideas certainly fall into line with the Democrats on the national level and her contributions suggest she is getting aid from some sort of organized effort to back their agenda everywhere.
