Democrats might want to take a look at this one.

Because this shows just how much trouble they are in with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis. They’ve done all they could, inventing different ways to attack him, it seems, every week. But it only seems to be helping to build him up more and feeding his profile to the Republican base.

That showed, clearly when he was called out on stage last night at Panama City Beach, at the 2021 Gulf Coast Jam. The concert was supposed to be last Labor Day but was delayed because of the pandemic. It’s now the largest concert held in the country since the start of the pandemic, with an estimated 22,000 people.

From WTSP:

“It’s the first major, over 20,000 people in population event that I’m aware of, that Billboard Magazine is aware of and that Rolling Stone Magazine is aware of (in the U.S. since COVID-19),” Gulf Coast Jam producer Rendy Lovelady told the Panama City News Herald. “After this weekend, it’s a house of cards and they just fall everywhere. There (will be) thousands of them across the country.”

That sounds like a pretty good prediction, with all kinds of restrictions continuing to fall.

Masks were optional at the event that, in addition to DeSantis, featured headliners Lynyrd Skynyrd, Brad Paisley and Luke Bryan.

When DeSantis was announced, he was greeted with raucous cheers, from what looked like a largely young audience. That should especially worry the Democrats.

Now check out these optics.
