Interview with Ron De Santis, former U.S. Congressman and Candidate for Governor of the State of Florida
In one of the most watched races in the nation – Ron DeSantis, the former U.S. Congressman from Florida’s Sixth District and the Republican nominee for Governor of Florida against Andrew Gillum, Mayor of Tallahassee. Gillum wants to raise taxes for the state – a state that prides itself and attracts people because of being a low tax state – What will happen if Florida has an income tax?
The NYT reports that “DeSantis and his team never prepared to run against Mr. Gillum; they thought they would face one of the more traditional, centrist Democrats running in the primary.” HOW DOES ONE PREPARE FOR A SOCIALIST, We will find out when we ask Rep DeSantis… Why socialism is suddenly acceptable to Americans? Or is it?

Has the media changed it’s roll from reporting to influencing? To paraphrase Hillary Clinton from this past week “There can be no civility until we regain power”. Who’s behind this caravan from Central America? And Another 2 or 3 Caravans on the way behind that one. Has political rhetoric gone too far and who’s to blame? When did politics become character defamation, innuendo, and accusation?
