BIG DeSANTIS ENERGY: Ron Fires Up New York Crowd, Says Zeldin Will Bring Law and Order to the Big Apple

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis showed up in Hauppauge, NY to support New York GOP gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin; he says Zeldin will bring law and order to the Empire State.

“Florida is a law-and-order state. I am a law-and-order governor. If Lee Zeldin gets into office, New York will become a law-and-order state, and he will be a law-and-order governor,” DeSantis told the more than 1,000 Zeldin supporters at a “Get Out the Vote” rally on Long Island.

“You cut police budgets, you do things like eliminate cash bail, and you have rogue prosecutors who won’t even enforce laws that they disagree with,” he added. “Of course, you’re gonna have streets that are less safe. Of course, you’re gonna have people that aren’t able to do the basics without fearing for their safety.”
