FLORIDA — Today, Charlie Crist, candidate for governor of Florida, hosted a press conference blasting Ron DeSantis for mistreating 50 Venezuelan and Colombian migrants escaping brutal socialist regimes in an effort to score political points and distract from his extremist, anti-abortion agenda and the real issues facing Floridians. 

Excerpts from Crist’s remarks include:

  • “[Ron DeSantis is doing this] all so he can rile up his base and use people as punching bags while he tries to run for president and distracts from the issue of this election – being pro-choice.”
  • “[DeSantis] doesn’t want to talk about it [choice] because he knows he’s in the wrong and that he’s on the wrong side of history.”
