On Saturday, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis declared that if Dem gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams becomes governor of Georgia, there will be a state “Cold War” between Florida and Georgia.
DeSantis began by noting that the Masters golf tournament is being held in Augusta, Georgia this weekend.
“I just wanted you to know that we really value our Georgians,” he told the crowd in Gulf County.
“I’m going to be honest if Stacey Abrams is elected as the governor of the state of Georgia: it will be a cold war between Georgia and Florida at that point,” DeSantis said. “I can’t have Castro on my right and Abrams on my left. That would be a catastrophe.”
“I’m hoping you guys [voters in Georgia] manage that and we end up in good shape,” he added.
In December, Abrams announced her bid for the Democratic nomination. Previously, she had represented Georgia’s 89th district in the state House from 2007 to 2017 and was the minority leader from 2011 to 2021.
In the 2018 Georgia gubernatorial race, Stacey Abrams ran as a Democrat and lost to incumbent Republican Gov. Brian Kemp. Abrams could face off against Kemp or former Sen. David Perdue, a Republican, in 2022 for governor.
According to a poll conducted this week by Emerson College and The Hill, incumbent Kemp leads Abrams 51 percent to 44 percent. In addition, Perdue, Kemp’s main competition, leads Abrams 49 percent to 44 percent.
“The prospects of Abrams in November are heavily influenced by whether or not younger voters turn out,” Spencer Kimball, who conducted the poll for Emerson College Polling, told The Hill. The survey polled 1,013 registered voters between April 1 and 3 with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Democrats’ ever-increasing need to corrupt America’s children and spread anti-white propaganda, along with their terrible economic policies, have led to the current anger between red and blue states. A southern state turning blue will add even more anger to the mix as Republicans see that Democrats are using illegal immigration to turn red states into blue states.
