Unelected Governor Kathy Hochul is facing voters in November.
Hochul recently told Republicans in New York who oppose her tyrannical agenda to “jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong.”
But New York Governor Kathy Hochul is fuming after Ron DeSantis used this one word to describe her attacks against Republicans.
Ron DeSantis is facing his first re-election for Governor this fall, where he will face off against Democrat Charlie Crist.
Even though DeSantis is facing his own re-election, he’s taking the time to use his rock star status to help Republican candidates in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New Mexico, Nevada, and Arizona.
One of the Republican candidates Ron DeSantis endorsed is Lee Zeldin, who is running against Kathy Hochul for Governor in New York.
DeSantis was scheduled to host a $25,000 a plate fundraising dinner for Zeldin on Sunday but had to cancel in order to attend a memorial service for a fallen law-enforcement officer in Florida.
Of course, DeSantis traveling to New York to help her opponent raise money infuriated Kathy Hochul.
Earlier this month, Hochul told conservative Republicans in New York to take a hike and get out of her state.
“Trump and Zeldin and Molinaro – just jump on a bus and head down to Florida where you belong,” Hochul ranted.
“Get out of town,” she told conservatives, “because you don’t represent our values.”
“You’re not New Yorkers,” she added.
During a press conference on Tuesday, DeSantis ripped Hochul for telling folks who disagree with her to get out of town.
“You have the Governor of New York saying all Republicans need to get on a bus and leave the state and come to Florida,” DeSantis said.
The Florida Governor called Hochul’s comments “ridiculous.”
“Who would say something so ridiculous?” DeSantis said. “To say ‘if you don’t agree with me then you don’t even have a right to be here.’”
DeSantis then pointed out how Hochul’s comments only represent the growing intolerance towards conservative Americans within the Democrat Party.
He cited Joe Biden calling Republicans “semi-fascists” as an example of Democrat intolerance.
“And now you have Biden,” DeSantis said. “He’s going to say . . . the majority of the country that opposes his policies are somehow ‘semi-fascist,’” DeSantis added.
But Kathy Hochul is not the only Democrat Governor to attack DeSantis.
California Governor Gavin Newsom spent $250,000 on a TV ad attacking DeSantis in Florida and recently donated $100,000 to Charlie Crist’s campaign.
The Democrats are clearly terrified of DeSantis.
And the attacks against him will only increase the closer it gets to 2024.
