Desantis Wants To Remove Biden From Florida Ballot

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is trying to see to the removal of President Joe Biden from the Florida Ballot as payback for efforts by Democrats to remove former President Donald Trump from states’ presidential primary ballots.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, he said there might be a way to boot Biden out of his state’s ballot due to the “invasion of 8 million” at the southern border.

He also condemned the attempts to remove Trump from the ballot, pointing to the consequences.

“Any time you have a partisan secretary of state, they’re gonna go after the other party’s candidate, and this is just gonna be tit for tat, and it’s not gonna end well,” he said.

He went further, suggesting that the tactic being used against Trump can also be weaponized against Biden based on the illegal immigrant crisis at the southern border.

In his words, “You could make a case — we’re actually, I’m actually looking at this in Florida now. Could we make a credible case that Biden, because of the invasion of eight million?”

While he does not think booting presidential candidates from ballots is right, he stated that he is willing to use the same tactic to fight back against Democrats.

As he put it, “I think if this is going to happen for them … I don’t believe in fighting with one hand tied behind your back. Whatever the rules are applied to us, we’re going to fight back and play the rules the other way.”

DeSantis’ statement comes after the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to look into and move quickly on Trump’s ballot issue in Colorado, where he has been disqualified from the primary ballot. Trump had appealed to the justices after the Colorado Supreme Court barred him from primary ballots in the state, based on claims that his role in the Jan. 6, 2021 protests at the U.S. Capitol constitutes an insurrection.

The GOP front runner has also appealed his removal from Maine’s primary ballot, a decision made by Secretary of State Shenna Bellows on Dec. 28.
