Governor Ron Desantis Supports Republican Convention Move To Florida

14

Love this. North Carolin will think twice before they’ll put a Democrat in the governor’s mansion again.

Do it! President Trump must not place any trust in North Carolina’s Democrat Governor Roy Cooper. What if Cooper were to shut down the arena before the convention is scheduled to begin? The dirty Democrats want to steal this event from the POTUS and the Republicans, because they know their convention will lack any energy. This must not be allowed.

Governor Ron Desantis Supports Republican Convention Move To Florida

By MiamiCBS, May 26, 2020

Gov. Ron DeSantis said Tuesday the political conventions for both major parties would be great for Florida’s coronavirus-damaged economy as President Donald Trump has suggested moving the planned Republican convention out of North Carolina.

“Heck, I’m a Republican, it’d be good for us to have the DNC (Democratic National Convention) in terms of the economic impact when you talk about major events like that,” DeSantis said while in Miami to announce two appointments to the Florida Supreme Court.

DeSantis was asked about Trump tweeting Monday about possibly moving the Republican convention from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte because North Carolina wasn’t reopening fast enough amid the virus.

“My posture on all this is we should try to get it done as best we can and in accordance with whatever safety requirements,” DeSantis said.

Republican Party of Florida Chairman Joe Gruters, a state senator from Sarasota, tweeted Monday in support of Florida becoming the landing spot for the late August convention.

“Florida is committed to ensuring a safe, secure and successful event for President @realDonaldTrump and all attendees,” Gruters tweeted.

Competing for Trump’s attention, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp on Tuesday sent out his own pitch for the event.

“With world-class facilities, restaurants, hotels, and workforce, Georgia would be honored to safely host the Republican National Convention,” Kemp tweeted. “We hope you will consider the Peach State, @realdonaldtrump!”

The Democratic National Convention remains scheduled for the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisc., a state that Trump narrowly won in 2016. The Florida Democratic Party declined to comment about DeSantis’ statement about welcoming the conventions.

Florida Governor Offers To Host GOP Convention As North Carolina Remains Closed

In the wake of President Trump threatening to move the economy-boosting GOP convention from the state of North Carolina if the governor cannot guarantee all invitees will be allowed to attend the event, Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida has expressed interest in hosting the convention in his state.
