In a roundtable discussion in Doral, Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis warned that COVID rules will suddenly return after the midterm elections if Democrats are allowed to remain in power.
“The minute those elections are over,” he said, “they will impose mandates if they feel the need to do that. They will impose restrictions.”
Criticizing the recent lifting of restrictions in blue states as mere political moves aimed at bolstering failing election campaigns, the Florida governor said, “So when you start to see them kind of re-evaluate or say all this, just understand this. The science didn’t change. The medical science didn’t change. The political science changed. They feel the heat.”
“They know that voters have been tired of perpetual lockdown policies,” the Republican continued. “They know that they have basically offered no off ramp and they know that they’re fixing to be whooped at the polls, so that’s causing the epiphany.”
