Florida's governor starts Presidential Protection Fund

If you get emails from The Republican Party of Florida, you may have received a personal email with a message from Florida's governor Ron DeSantis.

The email reads: "When I served in Congress, I fought back against the Democrats' witch hunts every single day. I refused to let them overturn the 2016 election and erase your vote from history. Now that Democrats are officially moving to impeach our duly elected president, my duty to protect him isn't over.

"As Governor of Florida, I want the president to know that we have his back in this fight 100 percent, so today I'm issuing the Presidential Protection Fund to fight back against this disgusting attempt to overturn a legitimate U.S. elections."

The email requested donations.

... it kinda has roots in Obama's 2008 victory. Republicans have never, ever gotten over that.

As governor he is expected to represent all of the people of
the state of Florida not just one party. This is disgusting.
