“There is cause for concern,” DeSantis said during an event Monday.
“Texas would have all these companies moved from California over the years. So you’d have companies move from San Francisco to Austin, and they’d bring hundreds of employees with them. And those employees would vote the exact same way they voted that turned San Francisco into the dumpster fire that it is.”
ICYMI: Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) calls San Francisco a “dumpster fire” and expresses concern about Democrats moving to Florida:

“It’s like the leftism, they will not draw the connection between their leftist ideology and the destruction that’s all around them,” DeSantis said. “It is a problem because I do think there’s a class of voters who would come to Florida, and they would continue to vote the same way.”
DeSantis’s comments came just days after he created a criminal division dedicated to investigating voter fraud.
“I don’t think there is any other place in the country where you should have more confidence that your vote counts than in the state of Florida,” DeSantis said at a news conference before signing the law, according to CNN.
He has also helped Florida Republicans take the lead on number of other cultural issues, including radical gender ideology, woke education, and the revocation of Disney’s special tax status and redistricting.
