WATCH: Congressman Soto, Florida Democratic Party Chair Slam Trump, MAGA Republicans Ahead of Florida Freedom Summit

Florida Democrats ask ‘who will win best in show in the extreme MAGA competition this weekend?’

Today, Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried and Congressman Darren Soto held a press call slamming Donald Trump and the 2024 Republican Presidential field as they prepare to take the stage at Saturday’s “Florida Freedom Summit”. Chair Fried & Congressman Soto highlighted how the GOP’s extreme, anti-freedom agenda is stripping away fundamental rights in Florida and across the country. 


“Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis have worked overtime to roll back our rights: the right to make our own health care decisions, to the right to be safe in our communities, and to our children’s rights to learn their full history in school,” said Florida Democratic Party Chair Nikki Fried. 

“We must reelect President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to defend and restore the rights that Republicans have been rolling back. … That’s the choice Florida voters will have in 2024 — a country run by extremists who spend their time rolling back our freedoms, or a country where our leaders will take us forward.”

“Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis and the rest of the presidential contenders are coming to town to see who can win ‘best in show’ in the extreme MAGA competition this weekend. … They’re agents of chaos, and Florida families can’t afford it,” said Congressman Darren Soto. 

“When we think about our president, Joe Biden, it’s about progress, and it’s about stability during these uncertain times. … It’s been chaos versus stability. It’s been taking away rights versus defending our freedoms. And I’m proud to serve under President Biden.”
