Democrat Palm Beach County Commissioner David Kerner announced this week that he is going to campaign every day until election day to re-elect Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Kerner previously served as the mayor of the heavily Democratic Palm Beach County, the third largest county in Florida.
“Every day until November 8, I will campaign for Governor DeSantis and on November 8, I will vote for Governor DeSantis. And today, I proudly endorse Governor Ron DeSantis for re-election as the Governor of the great state of Florida,” Kerner said. “As an aside, Governor, I am very proud that you felt that my endorsement was worthy of acceptance. And I’m so delighted that we’ve had this opportunity to be here in public with the community to make it official.”
“This was not a difficult choice for me,” he continued. “This was not the proverbial lesser of two evils. Governor DeSantis has demonstrated himself beyond worthy of the humbling duties of this office. And he has done so with the level of dignity, purpose, and respect that is lost in the public sphere today. It may come as a shock to many of you, or at least many of my friends that as a Democratic elected officer in deep blue Palm Beach County, I’m endorsing Republican governor.”
“But I will not remain silent. There is too much on the line in this election,” Kerner added. “The governor’s Democratic opponent has already started talking about reallocation, which to me, by the way, is a code word for taking resources away from the men and women that protect us. It’s a code word for defunding the police. Florida is a proud state, one with a deep history. The beauty of our state is represented in the diversity of our environment and the diversity of our people. But no doubt we are a state on the rise. And I give a lot of credit to our governor for the trajectory of our state.”
DeSantis responded to the endorsement on Twitter, writing, “In Florida, we support law enforcement, reject the anti-police movement, and focus on justice for victims — not coddling criminals.”
“Democrat and former police officer @DavidMKerner stands for the rule of law,” DeSantis added. “Thankful to receive his endorsement today in West Palm Beach!”
In Florida, we support law enforcement, reject the anti-police movement, and focus on justice for victims — not coddling criminals.
