Republicans had a secret weapon in the Florida recount fight

Jonathan Allen
NBC News
11/18/18

EXCERPT:

Jessica Furst Johnson was supposed to fly from Washington to Orlando this week for a post-election Walt Disney World vacation with her husband and their two small children.

Instead, Johnson, the 37-year-old general counsel to the National Republican Senatorial Committee, found herself in Tallahassee, quarterbacking the GOP's legal response to the two-recount Senate contest between the Democratic incumbent, Bill Nelson, and Gov. Rick Scott, his Republican challenger.

Her opposite number in this fight, Democratic super-lawyer Marc Elias, had more than 50,000 Twitter followers, a resume that includes serving as the general counsel on two presidential campaigns and a ream of profiles in national publications. Meanwhile, Johnson operated in relative obscurity.

The main stakes for the two lawyers ?and their parties ?were always the same: a U.S. Senate seat and the framework that will govern how Florida election laws are applied and interpreted in the 2020 presidential election.

But for Johnson ?a Sarasota native, a University of Florida law school graduate and an admirer of Scott's ?there was another dimension to the fight.

"This is personal for me," she said in a telephone interview with NBC News on Friday.

Now that Nelson has conceded, Scott can thank Johnson and her army of GOP lawyers for helping preserve his victory by largely turning back the sprawling Democratic legal effort to challenge the actions of election officials and various aspects of Florida statutes.

Though Johnson is one of Washington's foremost experts on election law, she's quick to point out that she's not a litigator.

"I have mad respect for the people who have done the hand-to-hand combat," she said, spreading credit.

In like virtual worlds isn't that like a huge army? Like if I were to storm the castle with 50,000 twitter followers then I totally am going to crush the opposition! Never has anyone sung the ballad of the mighty warrior and his massive virtual world following. Maybe the bards are just not up to it?

As a white woman, how could Jessica Johnson possibly do this? Doesn’t she know what’s best for her? Why’s she acting against her own best interests? Like O M G.

Because Twitter and it's twits know what's best for all of us, right? I had never heard of Marc Elias before - all those many followers of his must be liberal yankees...

As one who has had zero interest in pop culture since the Industrial Revolution, I find it difficult to imagine that 50k in twitards, or anything for that matter residing in the virtual world has any significance of any import. So, 50k in mind numbed "followers" is what? a good resume builder? A force to be reckoned with? Should I go hide under the bed or something? Seriously, 50k twitards" SFgW. For the older: BFD.
