The way that Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough finish each other’s sentences on Morning Joe — now that they’ve announced their engagement — is too cute. But Kellyanne Conway probably isn’t charmed, because today MSNBC’s fun couple chattered on about her . And what they said wasn’t flattering.

But not everyone in Florida politics appreciates Trumpism or the Big Lie. And the bipartisan Florida Supervisors of Elections, according to Politico's Gary Fineout, are sending out a message urging political candidates to "tone down the rhetoric and stand up for our democracy."

Fineout notes that "the association is made up of members of both parties, and (its) current president is a Republican: Marion County Supervisor of Elections Wesley Wilcox."
