This would be crazy it happens.

On Friday (April 8), Florida Governor Ron DeSantis warned that if Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams there would be a “Cold War” between the two states.

At a Press Conference in the Gulf County in northwest Florida, DeSantis referred to the ongoing Master’s golf tournament, using that statement as a segue into Georgia’s election.

He started the segue by saying that he “really appreciates our Georgians,” but encouraged Republicans to show up during the 2022 midterm elections to prevent Democrats from taking the state.

DeSantis said, “If Stacey Abrams is elected governor of Georgia, I just want to be honest, that will be a cold war between Florida and Georgia.”

The Florida Governor elaborated on his statements, saying he couldn’t “have Castro to my south and Abrams to my north. That would be a disaster,” adding that he hopes “you guys take care of that and we’ll end up in good shape.”

In 2018, Republican Governor Brian Kemp narrowly beat Abrams to claim victory, and despite Abrams trailing both Republican candidate David Purdue and incumbent Kemp, 51 to 44 percent and 49 to 44 percent, respectively, there’s still a possibility she could win.
