Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis was making a campaign in stop in Pennsylvania where he saw big-dollar donations come rolling in. It was a rare stop for DeSantis outside of an early-voting primary state. But the two events nearly doubled his first quarter donations.  

Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie launched an attack at Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis calling him a “big government Republican.” It is not the first time a GOP primary competitor launched that phrase at Florida’s governor.

  1. Beliveing in climate change is the same as believing one ant can fart in your yard and raise the temparture of your yard enough to burn your house down.
    Same thing.

  2. “Climate Change” is a smoke screen distraction to get your focus off our high crime rate, poor economic conditions locally that affect a large portion of our local population, and is just a plain stupid Democrat agenda. How stupid to have elected officials in office who think we can control the climate. But, stupid citizens follow the stupid Democratic talking points. Lord have mercy on the rest of us who realize what is happening here.

  3. I’m not sure the Commission should jump without first deciding what we as a community can realistically do to assist in combating climate change. But to argue that it isn’t occurring is completely insane.

  4. Before you declare a “Climate Emergency”, shouldn’t you know what the climate emergency actually IS and what is causing it? If you really care about Climate Change, study about it and learn all you can on what causes it then, use that knowledge to see if anything in Leon County is causing any issues that can actually be a contributer to Climate issues. If there is anything found, I will bet it has to do with the exhaust of the Vehicles on our Roads. To combat that, you will need to bring back the Auto Inspection. Leon County does not have any Manufacturing Plants, no Refineries, no Oil Wells, no Fracking, so, WHY is their a Leon County Climate Emergency?

  5. Climate Change – Stupid is as Stupid does. Just the Commission’s latest Marching Order from Outside Groups. Face it. The Liberal Agenda is to make Tallahassee just like Portland, Los Angeles and San Francisco. And look at the out-of-control crime in Austin, Texas. All a major agenda item compliments of Democrat/Liberal politicians. Tallahassee is on its way to having all the same problems. How about the 10 million dollars the City spends yearly on Homelessness. Just another way they rob from the taxpayers.

  6. This whole climate crap got it’s start way back in the 1970’s right after Al Gore invented The Earth Shoe and debuted it to the world on the very first Earth Day.
    Proof positive the Climate Change nonsense is a hoax, based upon a hoax, perputrated by the world’s #1 hoaxter.
    Of course Al Gore later went on to invent the Internet.
    Wait a minute you mean Al Gore did not invent the Internet?

  7. Can’t we EVER stop this climate change nonsense. Itrs been a proven hoax since the early 2000s. The Green agenda is really globalism..the New World order Communism and satanism. It’s a damned lie.

  8. Governor DeSantis should remove elected officials who inject Democratic Party ideology nonsense into Resolutions in a desperate attempt to further their agenda. Case in point the Democratic Party’s newest desperate attempt to purport the climate change ridiculousness into local level politics to further their one and only platform as they have exhausted their race card, gender ridiculousness, and their lost credibility on the economy isn’t working for them anymore. Remove these elected officials!
