Statement on Ron’s Announcement Suspending Democracy

Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced he is suspending democracy in the state of Florida.

“Ron DeSantis doesn’t believe in democracy and he wants to prosecute women who seek abortions,” said DeSantis Watch Constituencies Director Natasha Sutherland. “Today’s announcement is all about distracting from the housing crisis in Florida, the Governor’s ambition to prosecute women who seek abortion care, and his relentless drive to use the people of our state to further his own political career. This is not freedom.”
