Arizona GOP State Sen Wendy Rogers came to Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis’ defense and said what many conservatives are thinking after U.S. House Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was spotted in the Sunshine State and responded to criticism by pushing a conspiracy theory that DeSantis was “missing.”
Rogers declared in a tweet, “AOC is a monster, hitting Ron DeSantis for being ‘missing’ over the holidays.”
“He was with his wife for her cancer treatments. Go back to New York,” Rogers told the sophomore Congresswoman.
Fox News reported yesterday that according to a DeSantis spokesperson, DeSantis accompanied his wife, Casey, to cancer treatment Dec. 29, which is the day several left-wing critics accused the governor of “missing.”
Ocasio-Cortez responded to Team DeSantis in a quote tweet, “Hasn’t Gov. DeSantis been inexplicably missing for like 2 weeks?”
“If he’s around, I would be happy to say hello. His social media team seems to have been posting old photos for weeks. In the meantime, perhaps I could help with local organizing. Folks are quite receptive here :),” Ocasio-Cortez added sarcastically.
Last night, however, DeSantis also appeared in person at a New Year’s Eve “Let us worship” event in Miami at Miami Baptist Church.
