    GOP Congressman Tries to Lure Fox News to a ‘Free’ Red State: ‘Escape New York’

    Published on

    Fox News would feel more at home somewhere other than a stronghold of blue-state liberalism, according to a Florida lawmaker, with Buffalo covered in snow, New York City rife with crime, and Albany packed with Democrats.

    Rep. Carlos Gimenez of Florida, a Republican, made the case this week at the Patriot Awards in Hollywood, Florida. The awards are a Fox News custom to recognize the bravery of regular people and first responders.

    Gimenez stated in a Twitter video, “I’m glad they’re here in South Florida, inviting them to stay here in South Florida and move from New York.”

    “I don’t think they’re going to take me up on it, but I think it’s a good idea,” he stated, while tweeting that he “just made the pitch” encouraging Fox News to “escape New York & move to the Free State of Florida!”

    According to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, residents in blue states pay higher taxes.

    This claim is supported by the State Tax Index, which found that New York is ranked 49th nationwide in terms of the business tax climate. Fourth-placed Florida.

    “They tax and regulate, so they repel people to leave their state,” DeSantis stated in a March interview, according to the New York Post. “The base shrinks, so they got to do it again to try to square the circle. And you just can’t have it. So states like Illinois, New York — they are in a tailspin and they’re not probably going to be willing to change their policies.”

    Florida, according to DeSantis, does not pardon felons.

    “A lot of families were like, look, I need to live in a state that’s a law-and-order state,” he claimed. “So the number of people I run into from, like, Washington state or Minnesota who say one of the breaking points for them was the fact that crime was going through the roof.”

    Christopher Rufo pointed out how DeSantis has turned Florida into a hub of conservative activity and economic prosperity in an Op-Ed on Fox News.

    “He has advanced a substantive agenda to rein in left-wing ideologies in Florida’s institutions, passing significant higher education reforms, new curriculum guidance for K–12 schools, a ban on gender theory in grades K–3, and the Stop W.O.K.E. Act, which restricts critical race theory-style racial scapegoating in large institutions, including corporations,” Rufo wrote.

    “His administration has continued Florida’s rise as an economic powerhouse, counted votes in the midterms within hours of the polls closing, and led recent disaster-recovery efforts with skill and efficiency. After Hurricane Ian, the government deployed thousands of linemen, quickly restored power, and rebuilt a vital bridge in three days.

    “DeSantis understands that maintaining essential services is the foundation of good government, and he has built a team to manage the complexities of administration,” Rufo wrote. CONTINUE READING…
