DeSantis attacked by failed gubernatorial candidate


Former U.S. Rep. and gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham (D) took a cheap shot against Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), trying to marginalize him as someone who can’t make decisions on his own.

“People don’t change. Unless the @GovRonDeSantis that I knew in Congress suddenly became an engaged political tactician, the decisions of the DeSantis administration are being made by a team of advisors including his wife. She is sharp,” tweeted Graham.

DeSantis ally and friend, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) quickly came in to block and tackle, putting an emphasis on how “fantastic” First Lady Casey DeSantis was.

Graham’s assault on DeSantis did not end with just one tweet, the former failed Democratic gubernatorial candidate’s unleashed several nuclear tweet volleys, going as far as to say DeSantis did not care about the gay community or gun violence.

Graham even took a shot at Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran, saying “the man hates public education.”

We’ll go on a limb and say it. It sounds as if Graham is prepping the field for another run for governor in 2022, but this time it appears she is first using the  ‘fling the manure around first’ campaign tactic.
