Chair Nikki Fried asks, “What happened to focusing on Florida?”
As the U.S. Senate finalizes details of a bipartisan bill to secure the border, Ron DeSantis announced the deployment of the Florida State Guard to Texas. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:
“What happened to focusing on Florida?” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “As Ron limps back to his mansion as America’s biggest loser, he’s desperate to grab headlines and get ‘wins’ on the board. While Republicans in Washington line up to blow up the border deal, Ron is screaming from the sidelines for attention. This latest attempt to insert himself in the national conversation is just another political stunt with a heavy price tag for taxpayers.
“Sending troops and tax dollars to Texas is a massive waste of resources that distracts from delivering results for Floridians. Instead of using this legislative session to address the property insurance crisis, Ron and his Republican supermajority are back to their old tricks. Floridians deserve better.”
