Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is quickly becoming a rising star in the Republican Party.
That’s why fake news outlets like CBS’ 60 Minutes tried to destroy him.
Now Ron DeSantis picked one fight with Joe Biden that Democrats instantly knew was big trouble.
Florida is home to Port Canaveral and Port Everglades, which are two major ports for the cruise line industry.
But the ports are sitting idle, denying the U.S. economy billions of dollars in revenue because of Joe Biden’s pro-lockdown coronavirus agenda.
Governor DeSantis fought to keep Florida’s economy open, and now that vaccines are widely available, DeSantis is demanding that Biden and the Centers for Disease Control set the cruise ship industry free from limbo.
To force Biden’s hand, Governor DeSantis is suing the CDC.
“The main reason for that is because the federal government and the CDC has locked down this industry for over a year. This is not reasonable. This is not rational,” DeSantis said while explaining why a lawsuit was necessary.
DeSantis believed Florida would win the case because the Biden administration trampled on states’ rights.
Governor DeSantis also sent a message to the people who worked in the cruise industry or whose businesses benefited from cruise lines that he was on their side.
“We believe that it is time for us to vindicate the state’s rights and the rights of the state in court and also vindicate the livelihoods of the tens of thousands of Floridians who depend on this industry,” DeSantis declared and continued on promising the industry that “help is on the way.”
Governor DeSantis’ national profile grew as Republican voters admired the way he rejected lockdowns and mask mandates while fighting back against the corporate-controlled media’s attempts to smear him as the villain of the COVID-19 pandemic.
DeSantis fighting back against Biden’s demands to keep a key sector of his state’s economy locked down will cause DeSantis’ popularity with rank and file Republicans to grow.
