The leadership of Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) has taken the state of Florida to the next level.
The Sunshine State has a thriving economy, growing numbers of new residents, low taxes, and even a GOP voter registration lead over Democrats, thanks to DeSantis and how he’s chosen to govern.
Despite all the positives of DeSantis’ leadership, Florida Democrats still want to undo it all and remake the state into the likeness of New York or California.
Florida agriculture commissioner Nikki Fried is one of the Democrats who wants to unseat DeSantis and ruin Florida with leftist policies. However, just like other Florida Democrats, Fried’s attacks on DeSantis are increasingly embarrassing for her, according to Twitchy.
Not a Good Look for Nikki Fried
Usually on Twitter, Fried constantly makes comments that show how out of touch she is when it comes to Florida and the type of governor the state wants.
Despite the state having a GOP-controlled legislature, a Republican governor, and more GOP voters than Democrat voters, Fried declared Florida to be a “blue state.”
The Florida agriculture commissioner has likewise talked about who she’s going to invite to the governor’s mansion once she wins the gubernatorial election.
Yet, for all of Fried’s tough talk, the polls show her trailing DeSantis by double digits. The gap in support for Fried and DeSantis can also be seen in the numbers of people showing up to their press conferences.
On Friday, DeSantis’ press secretary, Christina Pushaw, tweeted out a photo of a Fried press conference and a DeSantis press conference.
While only a handful of folks came out to hear the Florida agriculture commissioner speak, DeSantis’ press conference was packed to the nines with eager listeners.
The Reality About the Florida Governor’s Race
No matter how much Nikki Fried or other Democrats attack DeSantis, it never sticks.
At this time, the Florida governor has raised more than $100 million for his re-election campaign this year. This is a historic amount of funds and more money than any candidate for governor has raised. This, alone, speaks volumes about the level of support for DeSantis.
When you also take into account DeSantis’ lead over every Florida Democrat in the governor’s race, this too sends a message.
Many Americans moved to Florida to enjoy the freedom and prosperity that DeSantis has brought to the state. Fried and other Democrats like her want to rip this down and bring failed policies into law.
It is no wonder that not a single Florida Democrat comes close to the levels of support DeSantis currently holds.
