Florida Gov. DeSantis Raises Millions From Finance Industry While Selling Out Working-Class People (OPINION)
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is a man who, while focusing on his own ambition, consistently sells out working-class Floridians to some of the greediest people in the country.

Gov. DeSantis is not up to the task, and we as Floridians left with the responsibility of saving our own lives in the meantime, cannot in good conscience allow him to continue his unmitigated spreading of lies in the name of political expediency.
In 2020, we are in danger of repeating the same mistake.
In the midst of it all, DeSantis and his acolytes still find the time to push policies like E-Verify that harm vulnerable populations. It’s cruel and completely unnecessary.
Amidst Florida’s Growing COVID-19 Rates, DeSantis Blames Vulnerable Communities to Hide His Incompetence (OPINION)
Just a few weeks ago, he was claiming victory over coronavirus.
Law enforcement often touts tear gas as a non-lethal, crowd dispersal weapon, but it is actually a lot more dangerous than that.
Instead of undermining our democratic processes for political gain, we should demand that instead we institute national vote by mail so people can vote safely at a time when they are at risk due to a global pandemic.
This lackluster performance in the midst of this crisis has hurt the Trump ally.
