Ron DeSantis made Charlie Crist regret sending him this one letter about COVID in 2020

Ron DeSantis and Charlie Crist squared off on Monday in the first and only debate before the election.

Crist attacked DeSantis over his pro-freedom pandemic policies.

But Ron DeSantis made Charlie Crist regret sending him this one letter about COVID in 2020.

With less than two weeks left until the Midterm elections, Ron DeSantis appears to be cruising to an easy victory over Democrat Charlie Crist in Florida’s race for Governor.

DeSantis enjoys a double-digit lead in the polls over Crist and is destroying him in the important area of fundraising.

President Joe Biden is heading down to Florida on November 1 to try and rally support behind Charlie Crist in the last week before voters head to the polls.

On Monday, Crist and DeSantis faced off in the first and only debate before the election.

Crist was hoping the debate would give him a much-needed momentum boost ahead of Joe Biden’s visit.

But Ron DeSantis showed up prepared and ready for a fight.

The pandemic was one of the top issues discussed during the debate.

Ron DeSantis made a name for himself when he ignored Biden’s orders and refused to enforce lockdowns in the Sunshine State.

He also banned masks and vaccine mandates in Florida.

The moderator asked Crist and DeSantis if they were “satisfied with your approach to the COVID response.”

Crist responded that he was satisfied and then proceeded to attack DeSantis for allegedly ignoring science.

“He wants to talk about how we reopen this and we reopen that,” Crist said. “You can keep things reopened but you’ve got to do it with an eye toward what healthcare providers tell you,” Crist continued, before adding “not being arrogant, so arrogant that you won’t listen to their advice about when masks are appropriate.”

Crist also absurdly accused DeSantis of being for lockdowns.

“You’re the only Governor in our state’s history to lock down our schools,” Crist said. “You don’t just shut down at the outset” and then end the lockdown when “politically convenient.”

Of course, this is a lie.

And DeSantis made Crist regret accusing him of supporting lockdowns.

“Charlie Crist wrote me a letter in July of 2020 saying ‘you need to shut down the state of Florida – you need to force people to shelter in their own homes,” DeSantis said.

DeSantis then pointed out how if he would have taken Crist’s advice it would have ruined Florida’s economy.

“I rejected Charlie Crist’s lockdown letter,” DeSantis said. “I kept the state open and I kept the state free.”
