Polls show Democrats are set to take a beating in the Midterm elections.
Republicans want to make sure they protect election integrity.
And now Ron DeSantis just pulled this power move to stop Democrats from rigging the 2022 election.
One of the main ways Democrats rigged the 2020 election was exploiting and overhyping the COVID pandemic to push through changes to mail-in voting, which allowed Democrats to boost turnout through the roof.
States adopted no excuse mail-in voting and ballot harvesting drop box schemes allowing Democrats to flood key swing states with an unprecedented surge of mail-in ballots.
Democrats also leveraged Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s foundation pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into states allegedly for “election administration” to fund get out of the vote operations to tip the outcome in their favor.
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is determined to stop that from happening in his state.
And Governor DeSantis set a model for every state with a Republican Governor and Republican legislature to follow.
In Florida, Governor DeSantis signed legislation making ballot harvesting a felony, beefing up voter ID laws, eliminating ballot drop boxes, and banning “Zuckerbucks.”

Election integrity became an important issue for GOP voters following the 2020 election.
Ron DeSantis making sure Florida has the strongest election integrity laws as possible on the books is not just an example of good governing.
It is another sign that DeSantis is preparing to run for President in 2024 by making sure he can appeal to all corners of the conservative base.
DeSantis already raised over $100 million for his re-election campaign, a war chest far greater than is required to win a second term in Florida.
Polls show that Ron DeSantis is running second to Donald Trump in the 2024 GOP presidential primary.
If Donald Trump does not run for President, then DeSantis is the clear frontrunner.
DeSantis’ record of achievement, his polling numbers, and fundraising totals are all signs that DeSantis is running for President in 2024.
