The Democrats attack who they fear.
That’s why Never-Trump establishment Republicans are the ones who get invited onto the so-called “mainstream” media talk shows.
And Democrats proved they’re terrified of Ron DeSantis with one move.
The Democrats continue to demonize Donald Trump, but they’ve already begun laying the foundation as branding Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as “more dangerous than Trump.”
DeSantis is the bogeyman-in-waiting.
And California Governor Gavin Newsom drove that point home when he pledged $100,000 to DeSantis’s opponent in the Florida Governor’s race.
Newsom tweeted, “Time to make Ron DeSantis a one-term governor. I’m pledging $100k right now to Charlie Crist. Who will join me in helping Charlie become the next Governor of Florida?”
Time to make Ron DeSantis a one-term governor.
I'm pledging $100k right now to @CharlieCrist.
Who will join me in helping Charlie become the next Governor of Florida? https://t.co/YvpkkGKkOb

Crist, a former establishment Republican, became a Democrat ten years ago, and recently defeated far-left candidate Nikki Fried in the Democrat primary.
But Crist is viewed as a sacrificial lamb, even by his own party.
Nonetheless, Newsom is throwing money and support his way to tear down DeSantis.
This is at least the third time that Newsom has attacked DeSantis.
Newsom, who’s clearly attempting to go national as a candidate, ran ads in Florida, encouraging people to return to California.
Unfortunately for Newsom, people are voting with their feet.
Over the past two years, California saw net negative migration out of the state.
Prior to 2020, it had never happened in the history of California.
High taxes, cost-of-living, regulations, bad schools, bad infrastructure, homelessness, and “woke” politics have spurred people to flee the Golden State.
Newsom also spread the lie that DeSantis “bullied” the Special Olympics, which took place in Florida, but Newsom left out some key details.
DeSantis Press Secretary at the time, Christina Pushaw, set the record straight when she said, “The only ‘bullies’ here are the organizers who tried to force athletes with complex medical needs to take shots, even ignoring medical exemptions. Governor DeSantis stepped in to defend the athletes, and now we’re having an inclusive Special Olympics in Florida! Sit this one out. Governor DeSantis stood up to Covidian bullying to ensure that 70 Special Olympians can compete despite not being vaccinated. Meanwhile — your Covid bullying has driven hundreds of thousands of Californians out of your state, including myself.”
Newsom and the Democrats understand DeSantis is a rising star, which is why they attack him endlessly.
Newsom is also trying to raise his profile by getting into a battle with DeSantis.
Based on the people escaping California, it’s not working so well.
