Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) urged voters in blue states across the country to punish Democrat officials at the ballot box next fall for implementing seemingly never-ending COVID-19 restrictions.
DeSantis made the remarks when asked by Fox News’ Laura Ingraham on Monday night what his reaction was to California and New York, which both have Democratic governors, to reimplement mask mandates.
“Well, what are we on, like day, 700 of the 15 days to slow the spread?” DeSantis said. “The fact of the matter is, I think we’ve learned, you give these people an inch, they will never let go, they are going to take a mile, they are going to restrict, they’re going to mandate, they’re going to lock you down. And we cannot accept that. Obviously, in Florida, we do not accept it. So there’s no reason to be restricting or mandating anybody throughout our country.”
