Newsom To Donate $100,000 To Florida’s Ron DeSantis’ Democrat Opponent
The fight is on in Florida to dethrone Governor Ron DeSantis.
California Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom has been a leading critic of DeSantis, but has just upped the ante. Announcing on Thursday that he plans on donating $100,000 to DeSantis’ opponent Charlie Crist.
“Time to make Ron DeSantis a one-term governor,” Newsome wrote on Twitter. “I’m pledging $100k right now to @CharlieCrist”

During an LA event, Newsom doubled down on his support of Crist over DeSantis, saying that he does not support politicians who “demean people.”
“You want to ask what my ‘why’ is in life? I don’t like bullies,” Newsom added.
“I didn’t like what DeSantis said about Fauci, that you may disagree with him, but to call someone pejorative terms because they’re short. Who the hell are these guys? What kind of people are they?” the California Governor argued.

Newsom says when he was a kid, DeSantis would have had "his mouth washed out with soap."

The DeSantis speech Newsom was criticizing was when the sunshine state Governor called Fauci an elf who needed to be chucked “across the Potomac.”
Many conservatives appalled the rhetoric because it was on the nose, and very Trumpian. Not to mention hilarious.
Newsom, who noticed this comparison to the former president too, had different thoughts on the similarities between both politicians.
“I know all of us had to, you know, sit there and suck it up and take Trump’s demonization,” Newsome said. “But not everybody has to act like him. I got four kids. I don’t want these guys being role models. Attacking LGBT community, attacking women. I mean, this guy is so extreme.”
He added: “I’m standing up for this as a human being.”
“I know all of us had to sit there and suck it up and take Trump’s demonization, but not everybody has to act like him,” Newsom continued. “Literally, I remember growing up and folks would have their mouths washed out with soap if they talked like this. I’ve got four kids. I don’t want these guys being models.”
While Californians ditch the state for Florida, Newsom has become a much more outspoken voice against DeSantis. With both governors making arguments for why their state is much “freer” than the other.
Both Governors released ads pitching this claim. And each has been included below.
We’re about to celebrate Independence Day — but Freedom is under attack by Republican leaders in states like Florida.
Making it harder to vote.
Criminalizing women and doctors.
