Today, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement on the final Republican gubernatorial debate:
“Tonight’s debate was vicious, ugly, and deeply divisive — and ignored the critical issues facing Florida. Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis spent more time tearing each other down than talking about what they would do to build up Floridians. It’s disturbing that some of the only things the two candidates could agree on is denying healthcare to hundreds of thousands of Floridians and refusing to invest in Florida’s teachers.
“This was another bad night for Florida Republicans — and another reason for Democrats to be optimistic about retaking the governor’s mansion.”
