What a f****** moron!
In a bid to become the next governor of Florida, Democrat candidate Charlie Crist has already begun to alienate voters. Instead of being the great unifier (a claim Democrats love to make) Crist has opted for the attack route, urging DeSantis supporters to stay far away.
DeSantis fights to divide. I fight to unite.

Crist became the Democrat’s gubernatorial candidate on Tuesday by handedly defeating his opponents in Florida’s primary election. He immediately kicked off his campaign following the primary victory where he urged DeSantis voters and conservative Floridians not to vote for him.
A real winning strategy!
A former governor himself, you’d think Crist would attempt to convince DeSantis voters to switch sides, thus securing his victory in November, but it seems he’s using Hillary Clinton’s ‘basket of deplorables’ tactic of demeaning and alienating GOP voters.
Crist was hounded by reporters on his first official campaign stop. The former Governor was asked by a reporter to comment on those Floridians who happen to support DeSantis and his winning policies, to which Crist said, “stay with him and vote for him.”
“I don’t want your vote,” Crist added.
Charlie Crist has always been the kinder, gentler candidate.

Crist then unleashed his version of Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” strategy by referring to conservative voters as “haters”.
“Those who are haters, you’re gonna go off in your own world, and you better get right,” Crist said.
DeSantis responded to Crist anti-conservative invectives during an interview with Tucker Carlson on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, DeSantis is in increasingly popular with a growing number of Floridians. His policies generate a level of freedom not experienced in this country since before the China Virus pandemic. DeSantis consistently calls out fake liberal reporting and is leading the charge pro-parent movement, shielding young children from radical gender ideology in schools.
Crist, who was previously elected governor of Florida as a Republican and served from 2007 until 2011 before switching parties, is urging liberal voters to come out in full force against DeSantis.
“It is the Democrats’ last chance to stop him, and it’s going to be a lot cheaper to do it in Florida than it would be to do it in 50 states,” Crist said referring to DeSantis’ potential 2024 White House bid.

Crist also lavished praise on President Joe Biden, hailing him as a “phenomenal” president and the “best I’ve ever met.”
Charlie Crist just now: Biden is an “exceptional” president. “Look what he’s done for our country. Look what he’s done for the world.” 🤔
