If you’re a GOP congressional candidate, who should you take advice from on how to win your election?  Mitch McConnell — who, by all appearances, is a Disney animatron created to trip up Republican contenders — or Ron DeSantis, ultra-successful governor of Florida and a candidate who won a nail-biter in 2018, which was a very Democrat year?

If GOP candidates follow DeSantis, the Vegas odds favor them bagging their Democrat opponents.  DeSantis is no Elmer Fudd hunting wabbits.  He’s smart, tough, and relentless – and he’s right on the issues.  He wins.    

Expect DeSantis to dispatch hatin’ Charlie Crist to a St. Pete taxidermist this November.  

Crist, like every other Democrat across the country, is running with America’s wannabe il duce, delusional Joe Biden.  Creaky old Joe, that is, who miserably fails at everything he touches.  Biden’s 20 months in office is a testament to failure.  DeSantis has a four-year track record of success.  People are flocking to Florida — not just to hang at the beaches, but to live.  Increasingly, salt-of-the-earth folk are shaking off blue state blues for red state freedoms and jobs.

Summed up in a short paragraph is DeSantis’ formula for winning elections.  No need to stroke checks to overpriced Washington-dwelling, GOP consultants.  You can figure it out all by your lonesome.  From the Daily Wire, September 3

“We’ll hold Biden accountable,” DeSantis told [“The Ingraham Angle”] guest host Raymond Arroyo. “This is a referendum on his failures, make sure everybody knows how his policies have contributed to the mess we’re in, and then articulate what you will do to address things like the border, like crime, like inflation. I think if you do that, I think Republicans are going to win both chambers. And I think it’ll be a really good night.” [italics added]

If hunting isn’t your thing, think of DeSantis as a boxer.  He’s recommending the old one-two punch.  No need to win on points when you can KO your opponent.   

This election season, KOing Democrats happens first with the facts of Biden’s dreary record. 

Republicans running against incumbent Democrats need to pound away at their voting records, which ties them to the disastrous policies and governance of Biden, Pelosi, and Schumer.  In open seat contests, a Republican need only ask his dodging opponent: “Do you support Joe Biden?  If so, why?  If not, why are you running as a Democrat?”  The second punch — the KO — is telling voters what you’ll do to make things better.  Once your opponent is on the canvas, it’s match over.  Voters will see to it. 

So, if hunting or boxing isn’t for you, then imagine you’re a painter.  Voters, being busy with daily life, don’t have much time to tour art galleries.  With jobs to work, bills to pay, and kids to tend to, they aren’t going to devote a heckuva lot of time studying your masterpiece versus whatever a Democrat slops on a canvass.
