De Santis Is Right on the Money on Education

"Here's a little bit of Ron DeSantis from yesterday on Fox and Friends, cut number 8, talking about Nikki freed who lost the Charlie Chris last night, but represents sort of the Democrats running everywhere, cut number 8 on abortion. Yeah, you know, Steve, you talked to floridians who have been here for a long time. People that have just come over the last few years, the reason why they're doing that, the reason why they're happy with Florida is because we've protected their freedoms. We stood in the way of lockdown or is like Nikki freed, who opposed every decision I made to protect people's rights. And when she says you don't have freedom of speech in the classroom, understand what she means. She wants to use our schools to indoctrinate students into her ideology. And our position on schools is that the purpose of the school system is to educate kids, not to indoctrinate kids. So yes, we oppose things like critical race theory in our K through 12 schools. We want to teach accurate history, we want to teach American civics and we want to make sure that parents have confidence that sending their kids to school, the school's going to be focused on the core academic subjects and not try to inject left wing ideology into the curriculum.

It's been 30 years since hurricane Andrew came ashore in South Florida as a category 5 storm. It had top sustained winds of more than 160 mph. Andrew left behind $26 billion worth of damage. At the time it was the costliest natural disaster in the country's history. Jenny's stiletto vich with member station WLRN in Miami says Andrew changed how governments and people prepare for hurricanes. Just three days before Andrew made landfall, hurricane forecaster still considered the storm a minor threat, a major hurricane hadn't hit the South Florida mainland in 30 years, but less than a day away, the storm blossomed to a rare category 5 hurricane, according to the national hurricane center, Andrew destroyed nearly 25,000 homes in its wake insurance rates soared as a result of the storm and its devastation, building codes were improved. The insurance industry changed how it models catastrophes, and the hurricane center improved forecasts to give people more warning and time to prepare. That's Jenny's still a lot of its reporting from Miami. This is NPR news from Washington. It's now been 6 months since Russian forces invaded Ukraine, NPR's Greg myrie says the Biden administration has already sent more than $10 billion in military aid to Kyiv. Since Russia's invasion in February, the U.S. has gone from sending small weapons, those fired by individual Ukrainian soldiers to supplying powerful rockets that travel nearly 50 miles. As a result, Ukraine is now striking far beyond the Russian lines, taking out bridges, air bases, and ammunition depots. The latest U.S. aid package announced last Friday is intended to help with fighting in the south of the country, where Ukraine hopes to take back territory, captured by Russia early in the war. However, the front lines have barely budged in recent weeks, and there have been no substantive talks between Russia and Ukraine for months. Greg myrie, NPR news, Washington. This is Independence Day in Ukraine. It marks 31 years since the end of Soviet rule, speaking earlier today in Kyiv, Ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky said his country had been reborn by Russia's invasion. He's vowing to recapture areas of eastern Ukraine still occupied by Russia's military. The U.S. Military says it carried out air strikes in eastern Syria yesterday. It says the attacks targeted areas used by militias backed by Iran's revolutionary guard. A spokesman at U.S. central command says the air strikes were necessary to protect and defend American personnel and were in response to an August 15 drone attack. I'm Dave Mattingly, in Washington.

Today's notice this And I respect the diligence you put into your work and agree with you. More often than not Mike and current concern I'd like for you to address is whether Governor de Santas is pressing Policy in Florida specifically for the purpose of scoring national political points, even if I agree with certain policy ideas, like the banning of CRT, or banning transgender sports participation in schools Is the policy really needed or is and more about scoring political points to boost his 2024 profile? I don't like the idea of passing laws and setting standards specific to Florida. National attention and ambitions. Okay? So recently I mentioned Governor De Santis is greatest 20 to 22 weakness is what you're talking about here, the perception that he might jump ship in the middle of his second term. Luke, becoming president of the United States before officially running for governor, Nikki Freight. She repeatedly made mention of all this and most recently in advance of today's Florida Board of Education, ruling on the proposed CRT ban. The same tactic has been used by Democrats. The suggestion that Florida policy and laws really just being used by dishonest to gain national headlines said is set up his perceived 2024 run. Speaking purely in a political sense, it's not working. The most recent polling on Florida's governor's race shows De Santis, actually expanding, has laid over prior polling with a 10 point advantage over Charlie Crist and a 12 point edge over Nikki Freed. Now given De Santis his track record and Florida's incredible momentum exiting the pandemic. You have. Democrats are really left grasping at straws here but to address your question. That policy is being crafted and enacted in Florida to serve his personal and aspirations rather than us. I say, Let's talk specifics. You name them.

So make sure you stick around for that. Today's top story. Another candidate enters the 2022 race for governor. Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Freed made it official and joining me now in the achieve A credit union hotline for reaction is retired U. S F political scientist Dr Susan MacManus. Dr. McManus always Great to catch up with you. What do your thoughts on Nikki Freed's entrance into the race? Well, it was certainly the worst kept surprises. You wanted to get surprise surprise would have been if you decided not to run a state dinner AG commissioner role and run for re election there, But It's going to be a very interesting race. She's a different kind of candidate. The Democratic Party is changing, and it's demographic makeup. Younger progressives have very different political views than the older Democrats in Florida, and the younger people are Obviously starting to take a larger share of the registered Democrats as the older generations pass on, so I think it'll be a real test of the Her ability to generate a lot of support and turnout among the millennials and the gens ears in particular. In your classes at us if we talked so much about campaigning, marketing branding all of that Nikki Freed is launching her campaign with the slogan Something new. What do you think about that? Is that a smart strategy? I think it's a very good strategy because people are weary some of politics as usual. You see that and poles they don't like the traditional news media coverage of politics. They don't like the I'm a politician. Uh, it's probably in light of again the rising electorate as they call it, which are the younger demographic, very smart strategy and in a way She's mirror the strategy that was used by Andra Gillum, whom people forget came within a half a percent of best thing. Just Santa's. Of course, the Sanders will have a bigger at this time with the record behind him. But it's definitely a good strategy to say I'm not the same old, same old and it's also particularly important for Democrats who are very, very, very weary some of losing gubernatorial races. And now they have not only a governor's race to fight but a U. S. Senate race to fight and it's important that she tried to get a niche that represents people that Might not turn out but for her candidacy and will be enthusiastic, and she also needs to really jen up donors. It's hard to raise money if you wait to the last minute to run, so she's very smart to not let another day go by without formally announcing her candidacy. I'm joined by retired U. S have political scientist Dr Susan MacManus. We're talking about the 2022 race for governor of Florida. Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Freed entered the race today. What do you thoughts on Charlie Crist congressman from here in the Tampa Bay area, deciding to give it another go and run for governor again. Let's exemplary of the fact that his district is likely to be altered such that it no longer going to be as easy for a Democrat to win his congressional district. So what's the next best thing will make another attempt at a statewide race and he has had a lot of experience in running. He has at this point, better name recognition that Nikki freed and probably better known fundraising capabilities and He's good on television, but she's better in social media, So I mean, you could go down the line there. But he brings to the table experience and in depth ability or in depth discussion of issues that have emerged in Washington. You'll see Some of those more national focus issues. On the other hand, she's sitting right there and the catbird seat toe. Look at all the issues that we're really more Florida specific, but he's a formidable candidate. I do caution anyone who's listening about looking at polls seriously at this point in the campaign. Much has been made about how he's so far ahead of freeze in this race, But the problem is that at this stage of the campaign, a lot of the younger people who she would be dependent upon are not the ones who are weighing in on these polls there more representative of the generational schism within the party that we've mentioned already. Uh and I just don't think at this point that polls are meaningful. We have examples and Florida history of where an unknown candidates entered, but had the money to run and those Excellent consultant and was able to unseat a very formidable democratic opponent. That was when Bill McBride Best Janet Reno for the Democratic nomination for governor several election cycles ago, so it's not impossible to Suddenly gained name recognition, but you must have the resource is and really superb campaign consultant on backers behind you if you're going to do that, so at this point Looking like a two person race of freed Chris One brings more name recognition together, bring something fresh, so you could go down for down. They are going to be different, and that the contrast that they will have to draw between themselves. Were ultimately affect how they campaign and the general election against the Santa is the selling point for Charlie Crist, essentially what we saw back in 2020 that he is the experienced, more moderate candidate that can actually beat the trump like candidate in a general election. Like that is precisely his strongest messages experienced Broadbent, breath of knowledge known for being collegial and engaging. And the feeling among some of the older as we see in the bowl, because that's what reflected in it. Democrats feeling that he would have a better shot at beating the Santis. So it's going to be up to free to go after those dimensions of Chris. On the other hand, What he has is a liability is having run so many kinds. That's where her something new..

"Caputo, mark. Always great to talk to you. And let's start with Val Demings in the news that you broke earlier in the week. Originally, the conventional wisdom seemed to be that She would run against Marco Rubio for the U. S Senate seat. But then there was a lot of talk that she was looking more at a race for at the race for governor going up against the Santis. But then you broke earlier this week that she is in fact going to enter the race against Marco Rubio. Can you talk a little bit about what's driving that decision? She gave it. I think she gave it a long, hard look. And you know what I think What she thinks is a better race for her. Is the Senate race? Uh, now that that could be because she thinks Marco Rubio like being easier candidate than Santa's. I've got to say Not sure if that's true. I'm not saying either are easier, tough to beat. But it takes quite a bit of analysis and I don't think it was actually done, you know, polling and focus group wise on who's easier, tougher to beat. So I do think it's a fault of the war but get decision of where she wants to be. And one of the things that Demings people said to me and describing her thinking. Was that you know, While she really dislikes run two Santas, and she kind of loads the Senate Republican Caucus Maurin Washington on and says that they're you know they're obstruction. Their opposition. For instance, the covert relief bill only to then see a number of Republicans in Congress turn around and talk about all the great things in the code release till they voted against. That was just kind of one of those bridges too far for her and she decided, you know this would be best. You'd best not only for her On only for the party in the state. Also, the party kind of nationally because Val Demings does does have does generate a lot of grassroots enthusiasm and in the base. I have seen it. My Twitter feed, and I was surprised. By how much folks on the left for cheering this on, but they know her. They like her. Now can she win? Well? Democratic Party's gonna have to do way more in sort of the fieldwork aspect of what a party should be doing, and they're not that is registering voters organizing, staying in touch with them that that seems to have just kind of disappeared in the post Obama era. And the election results are showed show why that's been folly for them. Any idea what this means for Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy, because accidents have reported last week that she was really looking at at running against Marco Rubio and now with about Demings entering that race, although she hasn't officially announced but certainly sounds like that's that's a short thing. What does that mean for Stephanie Murphy? Well, it means it's stepping Murphy's go states a really tough primary. If she decides to run, you know, the national Democrats are ah, little more behind or a lot more behind. Perhaps Demings, then they are Murphy. They Demings has better name I d. She? She's a dynamic public speaker s O. You know, she can raise the money. She can rile the base And you know if you're facing an opponent like that, and Stevie's biggest Florida when you don't have a lot of name I d that's problematic. This certainly opens the door. This decision and again I'm talking to Politico's mark, a poodle for Nikki Freed to enter the race for governor. We figured she was probably couldn't do that, anyway. With an upcoming announcement, perhaps is is early is too and first Charlie Crist is already in when it comes to that race. Could Stephanie Murphy shift attention to the race for governor? Yes, she could. I think the that sound you heard throughout Florida was Charlie Christian. Nikki Freed, exhaling like who doesn't gonna be running for governor? Right s? Oh, yeah. You know, merging into that Murphy gets to stay put. I mean, you know, this is gonna be similar to why Demings chose to run for the Senate race. It's just gonna be kind of a gut call, um You know, there's a kind of a more conventional wisdom among Democrats that bloody primaries are bad. I think that's that's probably not the case. Ah, lot of People start paying attention when there's competition when there are campaigns. And so that's probably something that Democratic party could need. So you know, perversely what might be bad for Stephanie Murphy of primary a spirited primary against her across town, Maybe rival Val Demings could be good for the party in that it would kind of generate that amount of attention, excitement and maybe even enthusiasm. But again if you don't register voters is Democrats. All of these discussions, you know, for the general election. You know, become rather hedged. That is, you know, you have to start hedging it toward the Republicans simply because of the way the state performs and how the voter rolls look. Definitely if all things are equal you without a doubt, I think, give the edge to Republicans in the state. One of the question on this one, right? It's a It's a mid term of a democratic president. And usually you know, voters kind of tact the other way. Now, you know, it is folly to judge a Florida election before it happens Hell more than a year before. Election day. But this is just kind of the state of play as we see it now, So the caveat is, is that things can change. You know, the only constant is change and then final question for you When you talk to Democrats. Is there any concern that you've got Charlie Crist? He's exiting his seat. That is potentially a toss up race. You could have Stephanie Murphy looking to run for higher office. That's potentially a toss up race. You know, they don't have a lot of room to work with. If they want to hold onto the house E think you've hit the nail on the head pretty well. Is the those air pretty broad concerns..

"Continuing Now, with our top story the decision by the Supreme Court to take up a case on abortion, one that's going to be decided. About a year from now, just a few months out from the 2022 midterms, and that's what I want to spend a few minutes on. The conventional wisdom is that the midterms are gonna be good for Republicans, which makes sense. Since the party out of power typically does well in these kinds of elections. Plus, they're gonna have some other potential advantages, too, So the stage is set for the GOP, too. At the very least, take back the house and quite possibly the Senate, too. Here in Florida. Governor De Santis is in a solid place at the moment, so his reelection prospects look pretty good. While Marco Rubio certainly isn't most popular member of the U. S Senate, but mildly beating him in a center right state, one where Republicans have Huge advantage with their overall operation. It's gonna be a tall order. But we are 539 days away from Election Day And as we've seen over the past 539 days, Ah lot can change in that amount of time. And for Democrats, in particular, this Supreme Court decision on Mississippi's abortion law could be a game changer. Now, like I discussed with Professor Ziegler. It's possible that the Supreme Court keeps the status quo intact with the 63 conservative majority. That's unlikely even if the chief justice signs with the more liberal justices, which is certainly possible. All the pro life movement needs or Barrett cabin on Gorsuch, Alito and Thomas. That's not a certainty, but it's also not hard to imagine that result. So if we gamed this out for a moment, Let's say in June of 2022. The Supreme Court issues. Its ruling on Dobbs and the viability part of Roe v. Wade goes and pro life conservatives get a massive win. And it would be a massive win for them. Who does that benefit politically? If we go back to 2018 While Republicans lost the house. They didn't get crushed quite like some thought they might. They did manage to hang on to the Senate. And it wasn't migrant caravans that helped them outperform expectations. In large part It was the Cavanaugh hearings, a wildly contentious issue related to the Supreme Court. It inferior, aided the right Even Republicans who were disaffected with Trump at that point Were energized by all of that to go out and vote for the GOP simply as push back to what they viewed as a horrendous assault by the left. On their high court nominee. Historically, the issue of the Supreme Court doesn't excite Democrats like it does Republicans. That's because Republicans have something to gain. The overturning of Roe. No question. The issue of the makeup of the Supreme Court not only helped them in 2018 But also in 2016. Wright knew it would be a major setback to their pro life efforts. If Hillary Clinton won that presidential election and got to pick a nominee for Antonin Scalia's seat. Some people tend to forget this part. Of the 2016 election equation. That helped get some conservatives to jump on board the Trump train. Even if they had to hold their nose while doing it. But if the abortion issue gets flipped It's hard to see Democrats not being fired up for the midterms. Keeping control of Congress and the White House and pushing for a reshaping of the court. That could become priority number one. And that could alter the trajectory of the 2020 election in a big way. So not only will this Dobbs decision be huge for the abortion issue. It could also play a big role in the outcome of the midterms. More on topic of the midterms politicos market, Puto reported earlier this morning. Our friend Peter Schorsch over at Florida Politics confirmed it. Central Florida Congresswoman Val Demings is gonna be entering the 2022 race for U. S. Senate. Taking on Marco Rubio. Now originally. This was the race she was expected to jump into. Then all of a sudden, recently there were lots of rumors that she was actually contemplating entering the race for governor, which kind of came as a bit of a surprise. But because of dissent asses, you know real solid approval numbers at the moment. They range anywhere from the low fifties to the mid fifties, which again Good good approval number, not quite where he was. Towards the beginning of his term as governor when he was doing things that were Viewed is reaching across the aisle acting more bipartisan way He had his numbers, then near the mid sixties. But His approval ratings that are above water now and his huge April fundraising haul. Bringing in over $14 million It seems like she determined her best chance at higher office will be to take on Rubio. And they've got to be honest. That always seemed like the better choice. Not that it's going to be easy to unseat him. But the Santis is popular among Republicans. Right now he's real popular among the base. Rubio. Not as much. Now. Would give both descent ists and Rubio a slight edge here to Santa's, maybe a little more so in his race, but neither one's a sure thing. And Demings. Getting into the Senate race opens the door for Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Freed to take on Charlie Crist for the Democratic nomination for governor. We've known that Nikki freed, wanted to run against the Santis for governor for a long time. Now she's essentially been running against him since the start of the pandemic. And now with Demings not getting into that race. So you're going to get in.

But Republicans have made it clear they have no interest in compromising on core provisions of the bill, which would establish AH federal floor for voting rights by requiring states toe automatically register voters and offer 15 days of early voting, among other provisions.

"Record budget that passed 101 and a half billion dollars only department that saw a revenue decrease for his AG department was that punitive because of Nikki Freed's leadership. Brian, I think what happens is you start to look at some of the restrictions that came when you say 100 something and plus something million dollar billion dollar budget a lot. Some of that were because of the federal funds. A lot of those federal funds had restrictions. So we made our decisions based on the priorities using our general revenues, and then we looked at what can these dollars be used? Some of them have been put in places where, even in the education Department, they won't be able to use them over the next year, and we'll have to come back and implement strategies is how best to use those dollars to impact their students. So I think it was a priority list. I think that's been overblown. It's simply a combination of what we had in general revenue, which would have been some cuts and what we were able to do with the federal funds it came in, and the restrictions that they have on the and the resiliency task force. How quickly do you think this would come together? And when do you think south border governments are going to start being able to tap into these resource is to work on their plans. In July one as early as July one. We need to get that task force going and we need to start doing what needs to be done with septic, the sewer. What? What other whatever other things affect us in South Florida, most of its storm water drainage, and then you have the Biscayne Bay issue. So as of July one, all of our local governments need to tap into that need to apply. Need to get going. So that we can start to take advantage of those funds that are there to improve our drainage or storm water drainage, protect the bay and get everything back in order. It's a great opportunity to take these one time funds and complete infrastructure projects that will End up in rich resiliency. We also passed something that a lot of folks don't under.
