After easily winning his reelection bid in the midterm elections, Republican Representative Matt Gaetz was one of the leading vocal critics of the Florida recounts, calling against voter fraud and shady tactics. Gaetz was on the frontlines of the Broward Elections Office when Brenda Snipes blocked the office from protestors, and he’s also a member of Governor-elect Ron DeSantis’ transition team as DeSantis focuses on replacing term-limited Governor Scott who will be moving on to the Senate after defeating Senator Bill Nelson.
This Thanksgiving week, Americans for Prosperity’s Florida chapter is praising Gaetz’s efforts for cracking down on federal spending and fighting to ensure that residents of the sunshine state’s Panhandle know this by sending out a Thanksgiving themed mail card.
In the piece, Gaetz is thanked for “standing up for our families and communities” by fighting against “out-of-control spending.”
Americans for Prosperity is also launching the campaign for various other lawmakers, so Matt Gaetz stands as one of many lawmakers the group sees “who’ve championed reining-in government spending, criminal justice reform and free trade policies.”
This comes at a time when President Trump, who endorsed Gaetz during the midterm, supported a bipartisan prison-reform bill that has received support from both sides of the aisle.
Chris Hudson, director of Americans for Prosperity’s Florida chapter, commented on the matter, saying that “As Floridians gather to give thanks over the holidays, we want to take the opportunity to encourage lawmakers to join together and tackle our country’s toughest challenges. Before we celebrate the opportunities coming in the new year, there is critical work to be done in Washington – work that requires bipartisanship and principled leadership. Now is the time for Washington to rein in out-of-control spending, eliminate tariffs, and find a permanent solution for DREAMERS. We think hearing from their constituents will embolden these lawmakers to get bold solutions over the finish line before the year ends.”
