Alongside inflation, one of the main issues this election cycle has been crime. Whether it has been at the border or the negation of cash bail, Republicans around the nation have been calling out Democrats for their intention to legislate loose-on-crime policies. Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) is one of those Republicans. He sent out a tweet regarding this notion on Saturday.
Democrats' soft-on-crime policies are plaguing our communities causing crime to soar and families to feel unsafe.
It's time we support our nation's brave law enforcement officers and give them the resources they need to keep our neighborhoods safe and sound.

“Democrats' soft-on-crime policies are plaguing our communities causing crime to soar and families to feel unsafe. It's time we support our nation's brave law enforcement officers and give them the resources they need to keep our neighborhoods safe and sound,” tweeted Sen. Scott.
Last night on the Fox News’s The Ingraham Angle, Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) spoke about crime in New York City and the personal impact that Democrats have had on big cities.
“Typically in America where you have violent crime, especially in Democrat run cities, which is frankly, where most of it does reside if you look at the data, it’s because you have liberal politicians who simply do not care about the conditions of what’s happening in urban communities, and most urban communities are populated with black Americans,” said Donalds while on the Fox News program.
With just mere days away from the midterm elections, according to the predictions by FiveThirtyEight, Republicans have a 55% chance to take back the Senate, and an 84% chance to take back the House of Representatives.
With crime as a big issue this election cycle, Democrats have seen 20-point leads disappear in blue strongholds such as in the New York governor’s race. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) has made the contest a toss-up right down to the wire.
