Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) on Friday warned of a coming “Cold War” between Florida and Georgia if Democratic candidate Stacey Abrams wins the gubernatorial election in the latter state.

DeSantis said he “really appreciates our Georgians” but that voters would have to “take care” of the 2022 election to prevent Abrams from winning.

“If Stacey Abrams is elected governor of Georgia, I just want to be honest, that will be a cold war between Florida and Georgia,” he said.

“I can’t have [former Cuban communist leader Raul] Castro to my south and Abrams to my north, that would be a disaster.

According to the latest polling, Abrams trails Kemp by a 51 percent to 44 percent margin and Perdue by 49 percent to 44 percent margin.

DeSantis has become a major force in the Republican party and is flirting with a 2024 presidential run.

The Democratic candidate and Republican governor couldn’t be further apart on many issues, including gun control, immigration and the LGBTQ community. »
