Ron Desantis is a fearless and courageous leader, that’s why so many Democrats despise him. In fact others call him names and try to smear his image. A prominent member of the Democratic party did just that but it didn’t hit the mark. Wait until you see what they said.
Desantis’ opponents are trying and failing to make him look bad.
According to The Daily Caller, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida disputed claims made by Democratic gubernatorial nominee Charlie Crist that he was a dictator during a Thursday press conference. Listen to his response.
Crist, who was governor of Florida for one term after winning the 2006 election as a Republican, won the Democratic nomination for governor to challenge DeSantis Tuesday, defeating Nikki Fired with just over 60% of the vote. He attacked DeSantis supporters Wednesday, declaring he did not want their votes.
Desantis is ruffling liberal feather across the country and even from Democrat Governor of California Gavin Newsom. This week he pledged to take Desantis down.
According to CNN, California Gov. Gavin Newsom is sending money across the country to help Rep. Charlie Crist defeat Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis this November.
The California Democrat on Thursday tweeted that he was pledging $100,000 to make DeSantis a “one-term governor” and he called on his supporters to donate to Crist, who won the Democratic nomination to be Florida’s governor on Tuesday.
Asked about the donation during a Los Angeles event, Newsom said he was compelled to donate to Crist because “I don’t like bullies.” Newsom pointed to DeSantis’ verbal assault of Dr. Anthony Fauci at a rally Wednesday, during which the Republican leader said of the country’s top infectious disease expert, “Someone needs to grab that little elf and chuck him across the Potomac.”
DeSantis’ campaign responded to the news of Newsom’s contribution by tweeting a video stringing together clips of crime, homelessness and drag show performances in California.
Newsom and DeSantis are both considered future presidential contenders for their respective parties and their cross-country rivalry has been simmering for a while. The two leaders have served as proxies in the blue state-red state battle over pandemic policies. Newsom said 40,000 more Californians would have died from the coronavirus if they adopted DeSantis’ laissez-faire approach. DeSantis accused Newsom of turning control of his state over to a “coercive biomedical apparatus” that repeatedly pushed Covid 19-related closures.
Desantis is leading the country in protecting freedoms and saving our nation. That’s why liberals hate him so much. It’s awesome to see the Florida Governor fight with such passion and I can’t wait to see what he does next
