DeSantis Nukes Crist In Fiery Debate: ‘His Campaign Was Soliciting Campaign Contributions From Storm Victims’ | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) slammed Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL) during a gubernatorial debate Monday night in response to Crist's attacks on DeSantis' handling of Hurricane Ian.

    The debate was originally scheduled for October 12th but was postponed in the wake of the devastation that was caused by Hurricane Ian.

    The debate comes as DeSantis has far out-raised and outspent Crist in the election and is widely projected to win next month's race.

    Crist's on Desantis for his handling of the hurricane comes after DeSantis' top political rival, President joe Biden (D), praised DeSantis' response to the natural disaster. "What the governor's done is pretty remarkable," Biden said earlier this month. "I think he's done a good job."

    "Look, I'm proud that we had 42,000 linemen staged, ready to go, an unprecedented array of first responders," DeSantis said during the debate. "We were able to get in in a record time, effectuate thousands of rescues, get the power back on for millions of people in record time."

    "And when the bridges got wiped out in Pine Island and in Sanibel people thought those islands were going to be severed from the mainland for six months to a year, we did the Pine Island Restoration in three days and we did the Sanibel causeway restoration in two weeks," DeSantis continued. "Now those islands have the ability to recover."

    DeSantis then turned his focus to Crist and what Crist was doing during and after the hurricane hit the state.

    "You know what he was doing during this? He was hiding out in Puerto Rico," DeSantis said. "He wasn't helping his community here. And then when he got back, what did he do? His campaign was soliciting campaign contributions from storm victims. That is unacceptable and that's not what a leader would do and a time of despair."

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
