MIAMI (AP) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is poised to learn the identity of his general election opponent, on Tuesday, as Democrats choose between a man who spent a lifetime in politics — much of it as a Republican — and a woman casting herself as “something new” as she seeks the energy of her party’s resurgent base.

The Democratic establishment has largely lined up behind Charlie Crist, a 66-year-old Democratic congressman who served as the state’s Republican governor more than a decade ago. Running now as a moderate Democrat, Crist is facing 44-year-old Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who hopes to become the state’s first female governor while leaning into the fight for abortion rights.

Ron DeSantis Rocks...he did not shut Florida down during the Pandemic like Gavin POS Newsom did in California. President Trump for POTUS and Ron DeSantis as V.P. then after President Trump's term is over, Ron DeSantis for President for two terms. Ron DeSantis is not out to bleed America dry like Pedophile Biden is.
