DeSantis, Crist host campaign events in Central Florida on Saturday as Election Day nears

The countdown to the Florida midterm elections is winding down and candidates are making the final push for votes with only days left.

Governor Ron DeSantis made a stop on his campaign trail in Brevard County on Friday.  He visited with voters at the American Muscle Car Museum in Melbourne.  DeSantis took the time to touch on key issues, like the state's response to COVID, Hurricane Ian, immigration and pointing a finger at Democrats for inflation. 

"People have been able to look over the last however many years since I have been governor in particular. They are fleeing places that are governed by leftist ideologies and corrupt leftist politicians."
