DSCC Statement On Tea Party Extremist Ron DeSantis

DSCC Communications Director Justin Barasky released the following statement on Congressman Ron DeSantis’ announcement that he will seek the Republican nomination in the Florida Senate race:

“After six different Republicans passed on Florida’s Senate race, Washington Republicans now have to decide if they will embrace Tea Party extremist Congressman DeSantis who is wildly out of step with mainstream Floridians. Congressman DeSantis supported the government shutdown, voted for plans that would dismantle Social Security and Medicare, and refused to support the Violence Against Women Act.

“While Republicans struggle in this open-seat contest, Democrats have a strong candidate in Patrick Murphy who is running a great campaign and will continue fighting for Florida families in the Senate.”
