Ponte Vedra Beach, FL – Republican U.S. Senate candidate Ron DeSantis today released the following open letter to socialist Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders:
Dear Senator Sanders,
I understand you have endorsed the Democratic primary challenger to Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Tim Canova. I assume this is a prelude to your endorsement of Alan Grayson in the U.S. Senate race in Florida.
In an email from your campaign to your supporters promoting the Canova endorsement, you cited the fact that he has endorsed your campaign for President, the fact that the incumbent (Wasserman Schultz) represents the Democratic establishment, and that Canova is a full-fledged supporter of your “progressive” policy agenda.
Since your campaign has indicated that you will not stop at Canova, an endorsement of Alan Grayson cannot be far off. Consider:
- Congressman Alan Grayson endorsed your campaign for President. Congressman Patrick Murphy endorsed Hillary Clinton.
- Big money donors, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid are backing Congressman Patrick Murphy. His wealthy father has poured hundreds of thousands into a “Super-PAC” to support his candidacy – just the type of big money politics you routinely rail against on the campaign trail.
- Alan Grayson is exceptionally liberal and endorsed by the Progressive Democrats of America.
At this point, it is practically the textbook definition of a “no-brainier” that your “people-powered” campaign will get behind the so-called “Congressman with Guts” in Florida’s Democratic Senate primary.
