TAMPA, Fla. — Jim Lewis, Democratic candidate for Attorney General of Florida, ruffled some feathers during a Moms For Liberty protest this past weekend.
Attendees chanted, “Abortion is a human right. Fight! Fight! Fight!” as they marched near the Samaria Cafe in Tampa, Florida. Lewis was seen talking with the crowd before being asked about his personal stance on the issue.
“We need to make sure the people have equal access,” Lewis said. “People should be able to get it [an abortion] up to a certain status, like 20 weeks. They should be able to get it [an abortion] before 20 weeks. There are a lot of us who are reasonable.”
Lewis’s moderate stance did not please protestors, who called him, as well as the entirety of the Democratic Party “Do-Nothing Democrats.”
“They’re yelling at me right now, so I have to get going,” Lewis said.
Lewis is set to run against Aramis Ayala and Daniel Uhlfelder in the August 23rd Democratic Primary. The winner of the three-way race will take on incumbent Florida Attorney General Ashley B. Moody in the General Election this November.
