TALLAHASSEE (FLV) – Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, a Democrat, said that Florida needs to “try something new” and elect her as the next Governor of Florida in a new campaign video posted on Twitter.

On Thursday, Fried said, “I won’t back down.”

In the video, Fried says, “A Democrat hasn’t won the governor’s office here in 28  years. We’re in a tough dragged out fight with DeSantis and also for our democracy.”

She went on by discussing her run for Commissioner of Agriculture in 2018, saying, “Plenty of people told me that a Jewish girl from Miami had no chance, or to wait my turn, or that campaigning on weed, water, and weapons might turn off some voters.”

“But here’s the thing. We won. And we did exactly what I promised.”

In the video, she also talks about how Democrats have to win because “Florida can’t afford another four more years of Ron DeSantis.”

“I’m never going to back down. To DeSantis. To Special interests. Or to democrats who want to play it safe. Because the only way we win is by trying something new. To work like hell. And to show the voters we deserve their trust and their votes.”

Currently, polls are showing that DeSantis has a 12.8 point lead against Fried as well as an 8.8 lead against the other democrat candidate, Charlie Crist.

Also, Florida economic growth has remained strong under the DeSantis Administration, adding jobs for 22 consecutive months, even during the COVID-19 pandemic.
