With so much going on the past several days, the fact that Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida has his first official challenger sort of slipped through the cracks. In a move that will surprise no one who has been monitoring Florida politics, current Commissioner of Agriculture and outspoken, certified left-wing nutjob, Nikki Fried, has entered the Democrat primary.

DeSantis took a few days to respond, but when he did, he went full savage on her announcement.

You’ll also be less than shocked to learn that her fiance created a series of companies invested in various marijuana interests even as Fried herself has been seeking to influence cannabis policy at the state level from her elected office.
