City of Miami mayor, Francis Suarez, hits back at former White House secretary for claiming Latinos were being swayed by disinformation in the 2022 elections
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez responded to former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s claim that there’s a massive disinformation problem in Latin media which contributed to the Republic Party’s sweeping win in Florida.
Suarez speaks up on 2022 elections
In his talk at Fox & Friends, Suarez debated the impact Latino votes have had on the midterm 2022 elections after Ron DeSantis secured a win to become Miami-Dade County’s first Republican governor after 2002.
The mayor said that the Democrats are still in denial because they tried to label all the Hispanics as LatinX but failed because people don’t like it.
Suarez commented on how much of a big deal it was that Republicans had gained the Hispanic vote not only for Miami-Dade County, known for its Democratic hold, but also for the state and the country itself.
He went on to say that this win shows a template for success and how, if they were to communicate and connect with the county’s Hispanics, it would create a way for bringing prosperity to the United States by integrating principles that are the basis of Republican politics.
Jen Psaki was criticized after recently tweeting about disinformation in the Spanish media being the reason republicans secured so many wins in the state.
On the other hand, Suarez commented that the Republican Party became the go-to choice for Latino voters because its message resonates with public opinion and belief. Their rules of keeping taxes low, keeping people safe, and bringing innovation to the country are what impressed Miami-Dade County voters.
DeSantis gets a sweeping victory in Florida
DeSantis won the re-election against his Democratic opponent Charlie Crist by securing 59 percent of the vote. The sweeping victory has given Ron DeSantis a second term.
On the Senate side, Senator Marco Rubio defeated Val Demings, a Democrat, with 58 percent of the vote.
