Not only are Democrats on edge about losing the entire House and Senate this fall, but they are also clearly edgy multiple state governors as well.
Especially when future Republican presidents number amongst them.
One such governor includes Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who holds an 11-point lead over his Democrat competitor, Charlie Crist, who has made a career out of flip flopping when it’s politically convenient.
Such flip flops have proven to be increasingly problematic in the social media age, however, especially when accounting for the massive lead that DeSantis currently holds.
As reported by the ironically named Tallahassee Democrat, DeSantis holds an indisputably commanding lead over Crist.
“Gov. Ron DeSantis holds a double-digit lead over Democratic opponent Charlie Crist, with Republicans looking poised for a clean sweep of state’s Cabinet offices next month, a new poll shows. DeSantis leads Crist by 11 percentage points, winning not only overwhelming support among Republican voters, but also proving the favorite of most of Florida’s always critical, no-party affiliated voters, Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy found,” the outlet detailed.
In fact, DeSantis’s lead is so commanding that apparently other Democrat governors feel compelled to jump in and attack him as well, despite their own states sinking off a cliff into a cesspool of crime.
“What @GovRonDeSantis and @GregAbbott_TX are doing isn’t clever, it’s cruel. I’m formally requesting the DOJ begin an immediate investigation into these inhumane efforts to use kids as political pawns,” Newsom raged in response to DeSantis’s provision of free flights for migrants to head up to Martha’s Vineyard.
In light of illegal migrants looting in Florida after the devastation of Hurricane Ian, Newsom’s comment has not sat very favorably.
It has produced rich fodder for DeSantis, however.
“So the Governor of California sent a letter to the Department of Justice saying, ‘You need to prosecute Texas and Florida Governors.’ And all I can say is, I think his hair gel is interfering with his brain function,” DeSantis chuckled.
Clearly, Newsom was enraged about the commentary on his hair, which led him to attempt to hold a debate with DeSantis.
“Hey @GovRonDeSantis, clearly you’re struggling, distracted, and busy playing politics with people’s lives. Since you have only one overriding need — attention –let’s take this up & debate. I’ll bring my hair gel. You bring your hairspray. Name the time before Election Day,” Newsom sneered.
“Struggling” and “distracted?” That’s clearly Newsom, especially since DeSantis is “busy” handling the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
Moreover, he is doing such a splendid job that even the president admitted DeSantis is doing “good.”
Which is excellent when accounting for the analysis from Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy Managing Director Brad Coker.
“It will be important to see if he [DeSantis] can maintain or improve it in the coming weeks, as his leadership will be tested by state attempts to repair and recover from the damage inflicted by Hurricane Ian,” Coker asserted.
As even Biden had to acknowledge DeSantis’s excellent efforts, it is quite clear DeSantis is doing more than all right.
