DeSANTIS UNSTOPPABLE? Report Says Democrats Abandoning 2022 Governor’s Race in Florida

posted by Hannity Staff - 11.05.21

A new report from Politico is shedding more light on the potential race for Governor of Florida next year, with insiders saying the Democratic Party now views Ron DeSantis as “unstoppable” and will curb investments in the Sunshine State.

“The Democratic Governors Association has no plans to give significant financial help to Florida Democrats as they seek to unseat Gov. Ron DeSantis in 2022, a major setback that will make it harder for challengers to take on the popular Republican,” reports Politico.

“The DGA, which spent more than $15 million in Florida over the past two gubernatorial election cycles, is starting to deprioritize the state and is expected to have a much smaller footprint during the midterms, said two Florida Democratic consultants who have been in contact with the DGA,” adds the website.

 

“I do think, and I can’t stress this enough, the DGA is playing mostly defense this year, and that’s a monumental change,” said one insider. “When I think about Florida statewide elections, the number one thing you have to ask yourself is do you have the money to communicate in a really expensive state?”

“I spoke to them two weeks ago. We had a pretty candid conversation. DeSantis is looking strong politically and financially, and there are states like Massachusetts, Maryland and Arizona where they see potential pickups on top of incumbent protection,” said another. “They might do some money, but they are not going the way they have been in the past. There are not going to be multi-million-dollar checks.”

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.28.21

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis addressed a crowd of conservative voters at CPAC Friday morning; saying the GOP cannot go back to the “days of the failed Republican establishment.”

“Florida is protecting our people from political censorship and holding Big Tech accountable. We will pass the most ambitious reforms ever proposed for combating political censorship and de-platforming,” said DeSantis.

“In Florida, we are not going to let the terms of the debate be set by oligarchs in Silicon Valley. We’re leading on the issues that matter to conservatives. We don’t spout hollow rhetoric, we take action. We cannot, we will not go back to the days of the failed Republican establishment,” he added.

60 MINUTES on DeSANTIS HIT-PIECE: ‘Our Story Sunday Night Speaks for Itself’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.06.21

CBS News and 60 Minutes released a statement Tuesday after being caught red-handed selectively editing a statement from Florida Governor Ron DeSantis; insisting the “story speaks for itself.”

“When Florida State data revealed people of color were vaccinated at a much lower rate than their wealthier neighbors, 60 MINUTES reported the facts surrounding the vaccine’s rollout, which is controlled by the Governor,” reads the statement.

“For over 50 years, the facts reported by 60 MINUTES have often stirred debate and prompted strong reactions. Our story Sunday night speaks for itself,” it concludes.

Original Story:

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis torched ’60 Minutes’ and CBS News during a press briefing Tuesday; saying the outfit knowingly lied because they “didn’t want to let go of the narrative.”

“They cut out everything that showed that their narrative was a piece of horse manure,” said DeSantis. “It shows you how dishonest they are. These are smear merchants. That’s why nobody trusts corporate media. They knew what they were doing was a lie. I knew what they were doing was a lie.”

“They know that we know that they’re lying, yet they continue to lie. We’ve offered them the information, and they declined to interview the key people because they didn’t want to let go of the narrative. There’s going to be consequences for that,” he added.

“I know corporate media thinks that they can just run over people. You ain’t running over this Governor. I’m punching back,” concluded the Republican.
