Looks like Charlie Crist woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Even though he won the Democratic nomination for Governor on Tuesday, a cranky Crist started his campaign with nasty attacks on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his supporters. The attacks came as Crist promised optimism.
First, Crist called DeSantis a fascist. That’s red-meat hyperbole that rolls off DeSantis’ back.
Then, Crist unleashed a nasty attack on DeSantis supporters reminiscent of Hillary Clinton calling Donald Trump fans “Deplorables.”
Crist made the odd claim that he did not want the votes of DeSantis supporters. But Crist went even further.
“If you have that hate in your heart, keep it there,” Crist said.
Floridians who support Ron DeSantis “have hate in the hearts?”
Sorry, Charlie. Guess you finally saw those poll numbers.
Most political insiders believe Ben Sorensen’s only path to victory in the CD 23 Democratic primary is painting fellow Democrat Jared Moskowitz as a Ron DeSantis puppet. Sorensen, a Fort Lauderdale Commissioner, is running against Broward County Commissioner Jared Moskowitz to replace Ted Deutch in Congress. Sorensen takes that path in his latest web commercial but the execution is downright laughable.
Sorensen starts by claiming Moskowitz pushed a “Trumpy agenda.” No idea what that means, but the Sorensen “brain trust” of former Broward Democratic Party officials must think Moskowitz is a closet Donald Trump/MAGA supporter. Kind of laughable considering Hillary Clinton endorsed Jared Moskowitz this summer.
Later in the ad, Sorensen tries to act tough by declaring he will never “kiss Ron DeSantis’ ass.” Governor Ron DeSantis must be so relieved.
