Today is the first day of Florida’s special legislative session. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has released the following statement:
“This special session is just a stunt to prop up Ron’s failing presidential campaign,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “If it was anything more than that, he’d be on the ground in Florida today instead of trying to dig out of a 27-point hole in Iowa.
“If Ron actually wanted to address issues affecting Floridians, this special session would be addressing rising housing costs and the property insurance crisis — instead, he’s using the legislature to grandstand about foreign policy decisions that he has no real control over. Using the legislature as a pre-debate attention grab is no way to govern, but this isn’t the first time Ron has used public office to advance his personal ambitions.”
