Democratic Nominee for Attorney General, Sean Shaw joined community members protesting outside of DeSantis’ event at the Italian Club. Just like Ron DeSantis, Ashley Moody backs removing protections for pre-existing conditions and supports Pam Bondi and Donald Trump’s lawsuit that would take away health care from millions of Floridians. As Attorney General, Shaw has promised to immediately remove Florida from that lawsuit — and stand up for Floridians with pre-existing conditions.
Attorney General Nominee Sean Shaw had this to say in his speech:
“I entered the race for Attorney General because I believe that Republicans in Washington and Tallahassee, are taking this state in the wrong direction. Instead of increasing access to healthcare, Ron DeSantis and my opponent Ashley Moody want to take away your healthcare. They want you to fend for yourself, while the President and his friends get tax windfall after tax windfall…[t]hat’s wrong, and as this state’s next Attorney General, I won’t stand for it. It’s why I have promised that on day one, I will remove Florida from the pre-existing healthcare lawsuit.”
