With election day one day away, Democrats have been on the offensive as they look to overwhelm the state of Florida with a “blue wave.” In turn, Republicans have been working on the defensive by trying to widen their political control to further help President Trump.In turn, Governor Scott assured supporters in South Florida that “There’s no blue wave. But if we don’t vote, there could be.”
While new polls show Senator Bill Nelson and Ron DeSantis ahead by a slight lead, both races are expected to go down to the wire.
On Sunday, Governor Rick Scott spoke at an event organized by Bikers for Trump, which is an organization that has set up rallies to support the President since he announced his candidacy.
He didn’t directly slam his Democratic opponent, Senator Bill Nelson, but Governor Scott did stress the fact that his supporters need to turn out and make sure that those close to them also turn out.
Scott explained that “If we go out and fight for these votes, we will win. We have to get people out to vote.”This year, more than 4 million Floridians have cast early voting ballots, and both parties have been campaigning extensively.
Also in attendance at the rally were Andrew Pollack and Ryan Petty, parents of two of the students who lost their lives in the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14th.
Chris Cox, founder of Bikers for Trump, commented that the rally for GOP candidates was important because “We get behind candidates that our president endorses and we give them 100 percent of our resources.”
In addition, Pollack also blasted Democrats and praised Governor Scott for signing the gun and school safety bill that ensured gun regulations and allowed some school employees to be armed.
Pollack noted that “This is an important election as far as where this country is headed.”
