With Republican Absentee Ballots being turned in a record-low pace in Florida, President Donald Trump has tweeted a call to action for all Floridians: “Florida, send in your ballots!”
The ask was made after the Trump Campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) file a lawsuit against the state of Nevada after it approved a mail-in ballot plan for all registered voters.
The Democratic-controlled Nevada state legislature spent part of its weekend voting and passing a hyper-partisan election bill that would allow any registered Nevada voter to receive a mail-in ballot.
Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) signed the bill into law on Monday.
“This bill will help prevent Nevadans from experiencing the long lines at polling locations they faced during the Primary election, which will protect their safety, safeguard their right to make their voices heard, and help reduce the spread of COVID-19,” tweeted Sisolak
Trump, as expected, called out Nevada’s voting play, tweeting that the move would be “a corrupt disaster” if the courts do no intervene.
“Nevada has ZERO infrastructure for Mail-In Voting. It will be a corrupt disaster if not ended by the Courts,” stated Trump. “ It will take months, or years, to figure out. Florida has built a great infrastructure, over years, with two great Republican Governors. Florida, send in your Ballots!”
Trump is referring to former governor Sen. Rick Scott (R) and current Governor Ron DeSantis,” and later added to his praise of the two Republicans,” adding that both have done a “really good job” with the way the state was running.
“Florida’s got a great Republican governor. And it had a great Republican governor,” Trump said, citing Ron DeSantis (R) and Sen. Rick Scott (R). “Two great governors. And over a long period of time they’ve been able to get the absentee ballots done extremely professionally.”
“They’re so well run. Florida’s a very well run state,” he added. “Low taxes, low everything. They’ve done a great job. Really a great job. And the two governors, between the both of them, they’ve really got a great system of absentee ballots and even in the case of mail-in ballots.”
Nevada has ZERO infrastructure for Mail-In Voting. It will be a corrupt disaster if not ended by the Courts. It will take months, or years, to figure out. Florida has built a great infrastructure, over years, with two great Republican Governors. Florida, send in your Ballots!
