Hero Ron DeSantis on Democrats Passing HR1: “We Would Immediately Sue and I Think We Would Win”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis told Breitbart in an exclusive interview that if HR1 passes into law Florida would immediately sue because its unconstitutional.

And DeSantis believes Florida would win.

And, unlike most Republicans, the Florida governor’s word means something.

Via Breitbart:

Florida will take decisive action and “immediately sue” in the event of the radical left’s House-passed H.R.1, or the “For the People Act,” becoming law, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) told Breitbart News on Monday.

In a conversation on the role of “woke” corporations, some of which have targeted Georgia over its recent election integrity law, DeSantis noted these politically active entities are not speaking out against radical objectives the left is pursuing, such as packing the Supreme Court or pursuing H.R. 1. which would essentially nationalize U.S. elections and strip states of their ability to implement basic election integrity measures, such as voter identification.

“And I know are they out there protesting H.R. 1 in the Congress which is outrageous and unconstitutional? No. I don’t hear that,” DeSantis said.

When pressed further on what the state would do in the event of the “For the People Act” becoming law, DeSantis vowed his administration would take prompt action.

“We would immediately sue that it’s unconstitutional and I think we would win on that,” he said. “But at a minimum, even the most positive view of H.R. 1’s constitutionality would acknowledge you can’t apply it to a presidential election because the Constitution says electors are chosen by the state legislatures, and you can’t apply it to state elections, because the elections provision that they’re citing in the federal — that only applies to federal legislative elections.”
