Ron DeSantis’ Florida

Gov. Ron DeSantis is without question, the undisputed heavyweight political boogeyman to Florida Democrats in the entire state. It's Ron DeSantis' Florida

“Blame DeSantis” is the narrative that Democrats are using for all of the woes that occur in Florida.

Sea levels rising? Citrus greening? Global Warming? Your neighbor’s dog pooping on your lawn?

It’s all DeSantis’ fault.

This past weekend, a video was posted online of Lakeland Police officers allegedly arresting a 13-year-old girl for “protesting” her own freedoms.

Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried (D), who is running for governor, recently release the video where she stated,” I need everyone to see what Ron DeSantis’ Florida looks like.”

The video is edited, so there is no way of knowing the context of the video. Did she assault a police officer? Was she arrested? If so, what did she do for police to allegedly arrest her?

Even top Liberal Democratic operatives expect Gov. DeSantis to cruise to reelection later this year, and are dismissing any potential prospects Rep. Charlie Crist or Commissioner Fried may have to win the governorship.

But even though DeSantis is considered the favorite in the race against anyone the Democrats have to offer, it will be interesting to see how creative Florida Democrats are to defeat DeSantis.

Politics Brings out the Ugly Side of People

The Floridian broke a story last week of a Republican congressional campaign volunteer having been assaulted by someone who was stealing, destroying, or vandalizing his boss’ (Cory Mills) campaign signs.

The assailant in question, Samuel Benjamin, was rearrested on felony Burglary with Assault or Battery.

Usually, individuals who get arrested and then freed on bond or whatever, keep their mouths shut. This was not the case with Benjamin, who decided to confess to the crime committed and tell the world that he has anger management issues. Duh! READ MORE

Lauren Book-The mass shooting in Chicago today could have happened in any community in the US. Not a day passes that the lives of children, adults, & seniors aren’t lost to gun violence. We go to community events, grocery stores, & movie theaters hoping we aren’t next. More MUST be done.

Rep. Carlos A. Gimenez-America is truly the greatest country in the world. This extraordinary country has afforded me and my family unthinkable opportunities. My commitment to America will never waver, never falter. May God always bless the USA.

U.S. Rep. Stephanie Murphy-I never take America’s freedoms for granted. Every day, I feel grateful beyond words that this country gave my family refuge during our darkest days. I’ll always be proud to call myself an American. From my family to yours—happy 4th of July.

Rick Scott-Communist China & Russia are our enemies & pose a serious threat to our nation & freedom-loving countries. As they continue to work together in their quest for world domination, the U.S. & our NATO allies must stand strong in support of freedom & our national security.

Rep. Anna V. Eskamani-Gun violence is pervasive & has a ripple effect. Even if you haven’t been directly impacted there is a constant concern that you will be.

I will continue to fight for gun safety legislation, mental health funds & always provide whatever support I can to those directly impacted.
