 Today, Ron DeSantis announced a “Declaration of Economic Independence” at a campaign stop in New Hampshire. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:

“Ron can lay out whatever plan he wants,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried, “but we’ve already seen his track record on economic issues. His disputes with Disney and anti-immigration bill have crippled our biggest industries, housing prices have skyrocketed and our property insurance market has collapsed.”

“His repeated attempts to ‘reboot’ his failing presidential campaign are becoming increasingly costly for Floridians. The reset button clearly isn’t working and another political stunt won’t change that. He couldn’t win on culture wars and now he’s trying to sell his economic plan to the American people — but if his plummeting polling numbers are any indication, the country isn’t buying what he’s selling.” 

“While Democrats have been bringing inflation down across the country, Ron’s record on the economy has brought Florida to the brink – and blaming China, “zombie studies” or electric vehicles doesn’t sound like an economic plan to me.”
