House Democrats repurpose attorney John Morgan’s slogan

Orlando trial lawyer John Morgan, who toyed with the idea of a gubernatorial run this year and bankrolled the 2016 constitutional amendment that broadly legalized medical marijuana, reveled Wednesday in U.S. House Democrats’ new mid-term slogan for the 2018 elections: “For the People.”

The House slogan, replacing the failed motto, “A Better Deal,” also is the catchphrase for the Morgan & Morgan law firm.

Morgan took the attention in his typical understated stride: “Also I agreed to allow @NancyPelosi, or Aunt Nancy as my children call her, to pay me only a nickel every time #ForThePeople is used by the DCCC. @SenSchumer will be paying a quarter for the DSCC,” was among Morgan’s tweeted reactions, referring to House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and the party campaign organizations.
