MELISSA ROSS: What’s your appeal to Latin American voters? The Republican Party in the state has made significant inroads in that population.

NIKKI FRIED: And…and that is exactly the point. Is that they have had the wool pulled over their eyes about what exactly this radical right party is doing for them when the reality is it is the Democrats who are standing up for their freedoms, for their rights, for their opportunities to have success here in our state and in our country. They come here for a better way of life, and instead you have this rhetoric that is coming from the radical right of our state, especially Governor DeSantis, who is doing things that you’ll see that other countries in Latin America have done. You know, this governor has gone away from free market, attacking businesses for trying to make decisions on what they believe is right. 

ROSS: You’re talking about businesses not being allowed to know people’s Covid status or mandate vaccinations. Things like that.

FRIED:  Things like that, too. And he actually went off- went even further a couple of weeks ago, and had a press conference where he actually said that he is going to try and eliminate diversity and inclusion training even inside of corporations- inside of businesses. When it is the corporations who have actually been the ones who have stepped up for the last few decades, trying to make sure that there is inclusion and diversity inside of the workforce.
