Ron DeSantis is facing his first re-election as Governor this fall.
Representative Charlie Crist and Agricultural Commissioner Nikki Fried are competing in the upcoming Democrat Primary for the opportunity to take on DeSantis in November.
But these two Florida Democrats just picked a fight with Ron DeSantis that they instantly regretted.
Ron DeSantis is the most-popular Republican elected official in all of America.
If Donald Trump decides not to run for President again in 2024, polls show Ron DeSantis would be the clear frontrunner for the GOP nomination.
However, Ron DeSantis, who was elected as Governor in 2018, is facing his first re-election race in November.
The Democrats and their allies in the Fake News Media have spent the past year and a half viciously attacking DeSantis for his opposition to Biden and Fauci’s tyrannical COVID rules and mandates, even accusing him of attempted murder for refusing to enforce lockdowns and impose mask and vaccine mandates in the Sunshine State.
But their attacks haven’t worked.
Instead of wounding DeSantis, the attacks have only made him grow stronger and more popular with Florida voters and with Republican voters nationwide.
And the latest polls show Ron DeSantis is cruising toward an easy re-election victory this fall.
But even though the Democrats aren’t backing away from attacking and smearing DeSantis, they are moving away from their failed attempt to attack him over his pro-freedom policies during the pandemic.
Despite the fact that as Governor of Florida, he has no legal authority to do anything about the situation, the Democrats are now attacking Ron DeSantis over the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
“We need leaders who will stand up for democracy at home and abroad. Ron DeSantis never will,” Democrat Charlie Crist wrote on Twitter.

And Democrat Nikki Fried soon joined in on the attacks against DeSantis, writing on Twitter that “Ron DeSantis still hasn’t said a word about Putin invading a free, democratic country, which says everything.”

Of course, Charlie Crist and Nikki Fried apparently forgot about the fact that Ron DeSantis served overseas in the U.S. military during the war in Iraq, a fact that DeSantis’ Press Secretary Christina Pushaw made sure to point out on social media.
Pushaw also ripped both Fried and Crist for attacking Ron DeSantis over foreign policy when that is the role of President Joe Biden as Commander-in-Chief.
“Did you forget who the president is, Charlie? You know, the guy who is supposed to be in charge of foreign policy? Where is he these days anyway?” Pushaw wrote.

Pushaw is referring to the fact that, despite being on the brink of World War III, Joe Biden left Washington, D.C. and went to hide in his Delaware basement all weekend.
These latest attacks against DeSantis only show how desperate the Democrats are to take him down in November, as they fear him and Donald Trump more than any two Republicans in America.
