Over the course of the last several years, we have learned that Florida loves freedom.
Much of this newfound love of liberty can be attributed to Governor Ron DeSantis, who took a rather undeniable stance during the COVID-19 pandemic, banning vaccine and mask mandates and allowing Floridians to exercise whatever level of caution they so choose.
Now, as DeSantis is fighting for his gubernatorial post, (and likely eyeing a 2024 presidential campaign to boot), the Democratic Party is feeling his presence in a big way…and sending the President himself to go out and take him on.
President Joe Biden will visit Florida on Tuesday, seven days ahead of U.S. midterm elections, to contrast Democratic healthcare plans to those of Republicans while taking on potential 2024 rival Ron DeSantis during a campaign event.
In his first political event in a state he lost in 2020, Biden is expected to take aim at Florida Republican Governor DeSantis during a campaign event for Democratic candidate for governor Charlie Crist, and then attend a fundraiser.
DeSantis wasn’t the only one catching heat from the Commander in Chief.
The president will also go after Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott, who has proposed to “sunset” Social Security and Medicare if the U.S. Congress does not pass new legislation to extend them, according to a White House official.
The move seems to belie some panic on the part of the Democratic Party, and at a time in which the nation’s ideological shift is a strong one.
