When Ron DeSantis was elected Governor of Florida, he won by less than .5%. Since then, however, he has ruled over the state as if he won by 40%.
The brazen Governor frequently abuses his power to punish those who he sees as enemies. After the shooting in Uvalde, the Tampa Bay Rays called out gun violence and donated $50,000 to Everytown’s Gun Safety charity. Now DeSantis plans on punishing the MLB team by pulling stadium funding.
Bobby Burack from Outkick wrote on Thursday, “Florida Governor Ron DeSantis plans to veto a $35 million legislation for a Pasco County facility that’s earmarked for the Tampa Bay Rays’ spring training, OutKick has learned. DeSantis’s decision is in response to the Rays politicizing recent shootings in Buffalo and Uvalde ahead of a matchup with the Yankees in May.”

Christina Pushaw, a spokesperson for DeSantis, looks to have confirmed the report by retweeting the story.
