Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gwen Graham expressed her disapproval of Congressman Ron DeSantis’s support of President Donald Trump.
“Congressman Ron DeSantis’ conspiracy-theory attacks are quid-pro-quo payments for Donald Trump’s support. He’s Trump’s favorite lapdog in Congress, appearing on Fox News almost daily to attack the FBI,” Graham said. “Our country faces a serious national security crisis. The president may be compromised by a foreign country and Ron DeSantis would rather investigate our top law enforcement agency instead of Russian interference in our elections.”
Recently-announced Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis is a leading member of the group defending Trump from Robert Mueller’s investigation. In recent months, DeSantis has:
- Proposed defunding Mueller’s investigation
- Supported releasing the partisan Nunes memo
- Called for an investigation of the FBI and Department of Justice
“Ron DeSantis represents everything I entered public service to stop. He’s focused on partisanship and President Trump instead of the job he was elected to do — fight for our public schools, protect Florida’s environment, and boost our economy,” Graham said. “As the wife of a law enforcement officer, I will always defend the men and women who protect our country. As governor, I will always defend our institutions from Donald Trump and his lapdogs.”
