Early voting has already started in most states.
Democrats are running out of time to shift the political winds in their direction before Election Day.
And Ron DeSantis just made one move that highlights the clear difference between Republicans and Democrats on this critical issue.
Ron DeSantis recently set off a firestorm by flying two planes carrying 50 illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Since Democrats declare their states and cities as sanctuaries for illegal aliens, DeSantis figured they wouldn’t mind him sending 50 of Joe Biden’s illegal border crossers to the sanctuary state of Massachusetts.
However, the left-wing elites at Martha’s Vineyard called the National Guard to relocate the illegal aliens within 48 hours of their arrival.
DeSantis exposed the Left’s hypocrisy on illegal immigration and catapulted the issue to the forefront of the national debate.
This is bad news for Democrats, since illegal immigration is one of the issues where voters give them their lowest marks.
But now, with less than three weeks until the Midterms, Ron DeSantis just highlighted another clear difference between the two Parties on an important issue for voters.
Crime is skyrocketing in Democrat-controlled cities all across the country as a result of their pro-criminal policies like no cash bail and defunding the police.
Polls now show crime is one of the top issues for voters this fall.
But in Florida, police officers and first responders are treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.
On June 2, DeSantis signed the state’s “Freedom First Budget” into law, which includes a $1,000 bonus payment for local government first responders in Florida.
Those eligible for the one-time bonus include “police officers, sheriff’s deputies, paramedics, emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and firefighters employed by local governments throughout the state.”
The checks were intended to be mailed to the first responders, but many areas were unable to deliver the mail due to Hurricane Ian’s Category Four impact on the state.
But on Tuesday, DeSantis hand-delivered checks to first responders during a press conference at Sanibel Island.
In a press release, DeSantis praised the first responders in southwest Florida for working “day and night” following the destruction Hurricane Ian brought on the area.
“We are proud of the hard work and selflessness that our first responders demonstrate every day, especially when communities are relying on them more than ever,” DeSantis said. “For nearly three weeks, first responders in Southwest Florida have been working day and night in the wake of Hurricane Ian to save lives and help their communities,” he continued, adding that “I am glad we were able to bring Sanibel Island, Captiva Island and Upper Captiva Island first responders their $1,000 bonuses to show our appreciation for their dedication.”
400 other checks that are undeliverable through mail are also being sent to local governments “in an effort to provide first responders with these bonuses as quickly as possible.”
“For three weeks, first responders have been serving in response to Hurricane Ian,” DeSantis wrote on twitter.
“In the midst of the storm many first responders didn’t receive their $1,000 bonuses and today I hand-delivered their checks to show Florida’s commitment to the heroes that never stop serving.”
