Emoji-Meter: Ron DeSantis, Trump, $15 minimum wage and more!

by | Sep 24, 2020


Sometimes words just aren’t enough.

Ron DeSantis

Setting a precedent on “backing the blue,” the governor, along with GOP leaders in Florida, announced upcoming legislation on Monday aimed a defending the rule of law and punishing protesters who turn violent. The proposal will be on the docket for Republicans during the 2021 Legislative Session.

Donald Trump

After making pivotal stops in Pennsylvania and Ohio, the mighty ‘Trump train’ will make a quick stop in another battleground state (Florida) on Thursday. The rally will take place at the Cecil Airport in Jacksonville at 7 p.m. The event is expected to draw a large crowd, with supporters reportedly lining up for tonight’s event as early as 3 p.m.

$15 minimum wage

With 40 days until the election, pro-business leaders and groups are uniting, urging voters to reject Ballot Amendment 2 this November. Those lining up behind the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association (FRLA) to fight back against the initiative include Republican Tommy Gregory, Florida Chamber of Commerce, Associated Industries of Florida, and more.

Barbara Lagoa

Following the news of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s passing over the weekend, President Trump made it clear that he would nominate a judge this Friday or Saturday to fill the seat left by the renowned justice. While Amy Coney Barret is the favorite to replace RBG, word quickly spread among political circles that former Florida Supreme Court Justice Barbara Lagoa could be selected. A longshot, picking the Cuba-American judge could be a win-win for Trump — locking up the state of Florida for him in 2020 while allowing him to cut into the all-important Latino vote. Trump could potentially have his cake and eat it too.

Florida Presidential Polls

A new poll released on Wednesday, showing that Trump held a slight advantage among likely voters over Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the Sunshine State. While Biden still leads among all registered voters, the favorable poll is one of only two surveys since July to find Trump with a lead in the key battleground state.
