GOP Establishment Tries to Roadblock DeSantis’s America First Agenda In Florida

America First Congressman Matt Gaetz Comes to DeSantis’ Defense by Attacking Establishment Republicans

Published

Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has made implementing E-Verify a major policy point of his gubernatorial administration.

As VDare reported, however, he faces considerable challenges in seeing this program through.

One of them being opposition from within his party.

For example, Republican Senate Bill Galvano opposes E-Verify because it supposedly has a negative impact on business.

Galvano stated last month, “I don’t support having the requirement that everyone (use) E-Verify. It’s putting an additional responsibility on non-government officials.”

The Senate President’s opposition to E-Verify will likely lead to a watered-down E-Verify bill.

Another Republican state senator put forward a bill that would only limit mandatory E-Verify usage to government agencies and contractors. Private companies would not be covered under this mandate.

This would gut DeSantis’ original plan, since it’s primarily private companies who hire illegal immigrants, not the government.

Galvano’s weak-kneed establishment ways don’t just end there.

BLP covered how Galvano wants to pass gun control and broaden the scope of background checks in Florida. He has also received money from Michael Bloomberg-funded gun control groups as well.

Galvano is as establishment as they come.

The America First stalwart and upstart Congressman Matt Gaetz isn’t pleased with Galvano’s political shenanigans.

“What is shameful is that we have Republican leaders in the state Senate who have already come out in opposition to Gov. DeSantis’ E-Verify proposal,” Gaetz said recently..

Governor DeSantis has done a solid job so far in his term in office by clamping down on sanctuary cities, signing teacher carry into law, and championing solid economic deregulation measures. However, he must be ready to take the gloves off when dealing with establishment types such as Galvano if he wants to see his entire agenda fully enacted.

Nikki Haley is Raising MAJOR CASH to Position Herself for a Potential 2024 Run

Published

on

On Tuesday, February 18, 2020, Nikki Haley is headlining a fundraiser for Bill Hagerty, the favored successor to retiring Tennessee Republican Senator Lamar Alexander.

This move is fueling speculation about Haley’s potential presidential run in the 2024 elections.

The former South Carolina governor and President Donald Trump’s first ambassador to the United Nations is yet again putting herself in the spotlight as part of a broader plan to prepare herself for 2024.

Tennessee is a solid red state and the former ambassador to Japan, Haggerty, should be expected to win.

The Hagerty campaign held a drawing that offered two grassroots supporters tickets to the fundraiser for the opportunity to meet Haley.

“Team Hagerty is excited to have Ambassador Nikki Haley with us in Tennessee next week, and we are so grateful she stands with us in our fight to protect the conservative values of Tennesseans,” campaign manager Michael Sullivan announced in a statement.

Hagerty, recently received an endorsement from Trump, and is expected to coast to victory in November.

Haley did not support Trump at the beginning of his 2016 campaign, and instead endorsed Florida Senator Marco Rubio during the Republican primary.

After Trump’s election, he appointed Haley as U.N. ambassador. Haley has generally put on a pro-Trump act since leaving her U.N. position. It is up for debate if her pro-Trump rhetoric is genuine in nature.

Following her departure from the Trump administration, Haley started Stand For America. The political nonprofit group serves the dual purpose of keeping Haley in the public eye and adding fuel to her speculated 2024 run.

Haley serves on the Board of Boeing and maintains conventional neoconservative views on foreign policy.

 

Her winning in 2024 would likely bring back Bush-era neocon foreign policy.
