With a recent FAU poll indicating that President Donald Trump (R) and former Vice President Joe Biden (D) are virtually tied, the idea of a Biden presidency is not out of the realm of possibility. And, Republicans have to prepare themselves in the event that the November elections does not end in their favor.
Incoming Speaker of the Florida House, Rep. Chris Sprowls (R), discussed the possibility of a Biden administration with The Floridian, outlining whether or not that’s a viable path that American voters should set the United States on.
Specifically, Sprowls warned that a Biden presidency would be detrimental to the United States, arguing that “the reason we’re having this success we have is that” is because of President Trump.
“The reality is, prior to tax reform, Floridians were subsidizing high tax states in the way of income tax,” Sprowls said, adding that “that large subsidy went away, and the president has made Florida a priority.”
In turn, “if he doesn’t win reelection, that priority goes away.”
When asked what a Biden presidency would look like for both the country and the sunshine state, Sprowls admitted, “I don’t want to think what that would look like.”
The comments come at a time when the Trump campaign has actively been campaigning in the sunshine state, a state that the president won in the 2016 election but a state considered a swing state nonetheless. However, when pressed on what a Biden presidency would mean for Florida’s future, Sprowls maintained a positive outlook, expressing that “it doesn’t matter because we’re going to win.”
“I have no question,” he added, noting that the campaigning has been effective and that Trump can pull off another win to ensure four more years in the White House.
