Attacking Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is always a mistake.
But apparently Democrats haven’t yet learned their lesson.
And Gavin Newsom just spent six figures on a TV ad in Florida attacking Ron DeSantis for this laughable reason.
Ron DeSantis became the villain of the Left for his pro-freedom policies during the pandemic.
When other states were enforcing lockdowns and mandates, DeSantis kept schools and businesses open while banning masks and vaccine mandates in the Sunshine State.
But the Left’s attacks against DeSantis only made him even more popular with voters, especially after his pro-freedom policies were proven correct.
However, the pandemic was only the beginning of Ron DeSantis’ war against the Left.
DeSantis is also leading the fight against the Left’s woke ideology.
He banned the teaching of Critical Race Theory in Florida’s schools and classrooms, signed a bill prohibiting biological males from competing in women’s sports, and also passed the Parental Rights in Education Bill, which makes it illegal to teach children in kindergarten through third grade about gender and sex.
Today, Ron DeSantis enjoys rock star status in the Republican Party due to his willingness to fight and his ability to win important battles against the woke Left.
If Donald Trump decides not to run for President again in 2024, polls show DeSantis would be the clear frontrunner to win the GOP nomination.
DeSantis’ rock star status has made him even more of a villain of the Left than he was during the pandemic.
And it’s no longer just the corporate-controlled media and the Biden administration attacking DeSantis.
California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom spent $105,000 over Independence Day on a TV ad in Florida attacking Ron DeSantis for allegedly being an enemy of freedom.
Newsom’s 30-second ad, which aired Monday on Fox News, invites Floridians to escape DeSantis’ alleged tyranny for “freedom” in California.
“It’s Independence Day. So let’s talk about what’s going on in America,” Newsom says in the 30-second spot. “Freedom is under attack in your state. I urge all of you living in Florida to join the fight — or join us in California, where we still believe in freedom: freedom of speech, freedom to choose, freedom from hate, and the freedom to love. Don’t let them take your freedom.”
Of course, Newsom’s attacks against DeSantis are laughable at best.
Contrary to Newsom’s claim, DeSantis turned Florida into an “oasis of freedom” for not just America but the entire world during the pandemic.
While DeSantis banned masks and vaccine mandates, giving people the personal freedom to choose, Newsom enforced lockdowns and strict masks and vaccine mandates on Californians, including children.
Dave Abrams, a spokesperson for DeSantis’ re-election campaign, said “Gavin Newsom might as well light a pile of cash on fire.”
“Pass the popcorn for his desperate attempt to win back the California refugees who fled the hellhole he created in his state to come to Florida,” Abrams continued.
Abrams is referring to the indisputable fact that data compiled by the South Florida Business Journal indicates that it is actually Californians fleeing the Golden State in favor of Florida, with over 18,000 California residents moving to Florida in 2019 and over 17,000 doing the same in 2020.
“The people of Florida pay no mind to the pathetic smear campaigns from the Democrats and their allies in the corporate media,” Abrams added.
“We’re too busy enjoying the freedom Governor Ron DeSantis has created in the Sunshine State.”
