Republican Ron DeSantis has announced that he is resigning from the House Of Representatives so that he can best focus his energy on beating back the socialist threat to the state of Florida which is at risk of becoming a domestic version of Venezuela.
Rep. DeSantis stunned the so-called experts by walloping establishment favorite Adam Putnam in last month’s gubernatorial primary. With an endorsement from President Trump and running behind an unapologetic brand of conservatism, DeSantis easily won and positioned himself to continue the run of Republican dominance in the Sunshine State.
Such a fantastic win for Ron DeSantis and the people of the Great State of Florida. Ron will be a fantastic Governor. On to November!

But will be facing a serious challenge in Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum who sent shockwaves through his own party establishment despite only winning 34 percent of the vote but it was enough to take out Hillary dead-ender Gwen Graham from the Graham family state political dynasty.
The unheralded Gillum’s recipe for success? The support of Comrade Bernie Sanders who campaigned for him in the waning days before the primary, the ability to play the race card to emphasize his skin color over his qualifications and millions of dollars in dirty out-of-state money from extremist left-wing plutocrats like Tom Steyer and George Soros who will both continue to pour their resources into the state.
Even though Trump slammed Gillum as a “failed socialist” who would normally be soundly rejected by anyone with any sense on his job-killing corporate tax rate hikes alone, these are not normal times and DeSantis has already tasted what is to come after the liberal media smear machine screamed RACISM when he made an innocent comment that Floridians not “monkey this up” with socialism in a completely non-racial context.
In a sign that he understands the category five hurricane of propaganda and slime that’s headed his way, the JAG prosecutor stepped aside from Congress in order to defend his home state against the menace of repackaged Marxism in the form of identity politics.

Florida Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis said Monday he will resign from Congress to focus on his bid for governor.
DeSantis, who was endorsed by President Trump, is facing Bernie Sanders-backed Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in what’s shaping up to be a close, nationally-watched contest.
DeSantis sent a letter to House Speaker Paul Ryan on Monday announcing his immediate resignation.
“As the Republican nominee for Governor of Florida, it is clear to me that I will likely miss the vast majority of our remaining session days for this Congress. Under these circumstances, it would be inappropriate for me to accept a salary,” DeSantis said.
The Soros-Steyer-Sanders Axis Of Evil is prepared to go scorched earth in Florida to put a stealth socialist into the governor’s mansion in order to gain a foothold in a critical swing state that is going to become a bloody political battleground in the 2020 race for the White House.
The winner of Florida has gone on to win the last six presidential elections and an astounding 13 of 14 if you take it back to when John F. Kennedy failed to win the state.
DeSantis can now be free to make his appeal to voters and not have to be concerned with being distracted as he tries to save the state from the fanatics.
