In response to Ron DeSantis’s statement on the economy during tonight’s Republican presidential debate, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:
“Ron says that he’s been talking to people across the country about the economic burdens they’re facing, and he’s promising them solutions,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “But America needs to hear the truth — Ron’s economic ‘solutions’ have been absolutely catastrophic for Floridians.
“Thanks to Ron’s failed leadership, Florida has largely been left out of President Biden’s economic recovery. Instead, inflation is nearly twice the national average, car and property insurance prices are skyrocketing, and our cities are the least affordable they’ve ever been. Trust a Floridian — Americans can’t afford for Ron to inflict his failed economic policies on the rest of the nation.”
