Florida Governor Ron DeSantis blamed the “woke ideology” and “soft-on-crime” policies of Democrats in other states for the rapid expansion of fellow Americans into his state.
In September, the American Conservative Union circulated a “woke congressional leadership pledge” to Republican candidates seeking leadership positions. The message was in regards to a new unified approach to censuring firms that have gone woke. Supporting this concept was the first step in earning their support.
How did the GOP achieve such success in Florida? What were their differences? Rep. Carlos Giménez, R-Florida, spoke on “Sunday Night in America” to highlight Florida’s transformation into a solidly red state following the midterm elections. The state has become so Republican that the Democrats have written off the state. They poured a minimum amount of money into their candidates. Democratic sponsors called the state a lost cause.
Although Biden discusses the migrant crisis, he does not discuss the border crisis. An administration official stated on Thursday that the Biden administration is continuing to keep a close eye on the prospect of Republican governors secretly bringing groups of migrants to Democratic areas. The official was speaking on behalf of the government.
Republicans want a secure border. Republican governors like Texas’ Greg Abbott and, more recently, Florida’s Ron DeSantis have made a habit of moving migrants from their Sun Belt states to northern Democratic-voting areas. While their judgments may have policy justifications, there are also apparent political motives.
