Today, on my day off, I drove to the rural areas of Florida Senate District 28 to listen to my future constituents about their most urgent needs and challenges.
I had the honor of meeting with educators, farmers, business entrepreneurs, and veterans. Everyone I spoke with shared their concerns over President Trump’s impotent performance in Helsinki and their concern that, at all levels of government, our elected officials are not “all in for this nation.”
Veterans, in particular, were dismayed that their efforts overseas to protect our freedoms were undone by a President who is unwilling to acknowledge that our ” free and fair elections” were undoubtedly attacked in 2016 by the very man that he is cozying up to. They were also concerned that our two Republican gubernatorial candidates are trying to be as Trump-esque as possible.
Between Trump’s trade tariffs, his undermining of our key allies and trade partnerships, and his embrace of our adversaries, the people of District 28 are rightly concerned for the future of our country
It’s time to stand up to the party that has let this country down. Elections have consequences.
