Ron DeSantis has made “law and order” one of the main talking points for his 2022 re-election campaign.
This has Democrats fuming.
And radical leftists blew a gasket after Ron DeSantis said these 10 words to police officers.
With Democrats in major cities passing anti-police measures that cripple law enforcement officer’s ability to perform their duties, crime is skyrocketing nationwide.
At least twelve major American cities have set records for homicides this year alone.
But while Democrats are pushing to defund police departments across the country, Governor Ron DeSantis is making it clear that “law and order” is a top priority in the Sunshine State.
Governor Ron DeSantis, who is running for re-election in 2022, just released a new video ad promoting Florida’s $1,000 bonuses and treatment of law enforcement officers.
“Particularly with these young people, to make sure they understand that if this is something that you go into, in Florida, this is something that we’re going to look up to you. We’re not going to denigrate you. We’re not going to treat you poorly,” DeSantis said in the new ad.
“We’re not going to treat you as a political tool,” he added.

Ron DeSantis also talked about “law enforcement being treated very poorly throughout the country,” adding that “we showed our appreciation here in the state of Florida for the folks that wear the uniform.”
The Florida Police Benevolent Association endorsed DeSantis in his re-election for Governor in November.
Of course, with crime skyrocketing in major cities nationwide, polls show law and order is a top issue for voters headed into the 2022 midterm elections.
This is bad news for Democrats, who are known as the “defund the police” Party thanks to the influence of radicals like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.
In fact, a recent ABC News/Ipsos Poll showed the majority (61 percent) of voters disapprove of Biden’s handling of crime nationwide, with only 36 percent approving of his ability to manage crime.
If radicals like Ocasio-Cortez continue pushing the “anti-police” message, the issue of law and order could end up costing Democrats control of Congress next year.
And it will certainly make Ron DeSantis even more popular with Republican voters nationwide, who are overwhelmingly pro-law and order.
