Lt. Governor Nuñez Says Democrats ‘Pandering’ to Hispanic Community Before Election

August 23, 2022 Updated 6:30 PM ET


TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Lt. Governor Jeanette Nuñez criticized Democrats for “pandering” and “deceiving” voters before Florida’s primary election.

“On the eve of an election, Democrats are, once again, resorting to ginning op their operatives and media partners by deceiving voters and uselessly pandering to the Hispanic community,” Nuñez said.

Democratic candidate for governor Nikki Fried criticized the Lt. Governor for comments she made on WURN, a Spanish language radio station. Nuñez talked about busing illegal immigrants to other states.

“The governor isn’t going to stand there with his arms crossed. He’s thinking what he’s going to do. He’s going to send them, frankly to the state of Delaware, the President’s state,” said Nuñez through translation.

Fried called her comments “insensitive” and called on Nuñez to apologize.

“We know that that so many people have left communist countries and tyranny to come here to Florida and to America, for democracy for equality way of life,” Fried said. “And her comments were so insensitive.”

However, Nuñez said Fried misrepresented the border crisis.

“Entering the country illegally and fleeing a dictatorship to seek asylum are two different things, and misrepresenting that is offensive,” Nuñez said.

DeSantis to “Reroute” Illegal Immigrants to Biden’s Home State if Bussed to Florida

DeSantis has said he would reroute illegal illegal immigrants to President Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware if they are bussed to Florida. 

“The crisis at our border is something affecting the entire nation, including the Sunshine State. And although states do not have jurisdiction over immigration, we do have jurisdiction over the well-being of our residents,” Nuñez said.
