In response to the preliminary injunction issued by the Northern District of Florida preventing Florida from enacting new voter suppression provisions contained in Senate Bill 7050, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:
“This is a huge win for the people of Florida,” said Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried. “Our democracy works best when everyone has access to the ballot box, and I applaud the court for recognizing that and actively protecting the rights of Floridians.
“Ron and his sidekicks in the legislature clearly, to quote the injunction, struggle with ‘governing within the bounds set by the United States Constitution’ — a struggle driven by their endless and unquenchable thirst for power. I don’t know what’s more embarrassing — his recent scorecard in the courts or his cratering poll numbers.”
