Ron DeSantis in 2024 takes elder abuse to an extreme — but like it or not, that campaign starts the day after the midterms (if not before).

In his attempt to draw attention to the dysfunction in American immigration policy, Florida Governor Ron Desantis sent planeloads of migrants to open-immigration policy states; most notably to Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts, which has culminated in a lawsuit filed by the migrants. When fifty migrants landed in Martha’s Vineyard claiming that Desantis promised them jobs and homes, the locals, as well as the immigrants, voiced frustration with the Republican governor’s misdirection. Desantis recently threatened Delaware with the same retribution, but this plane has yet to arrive. The gaffe evinced that migrants are merely pawns to politicians on both sides of the spectrum.

Under the leadership of Florida’s Republican Gov. Ron Desantis, a Missouri-based railroad and transport company that contributed generously in support of his campaign saw an astonishing 280-fold increase in its Florida state government contract awards. A construction aggregates firm that contributed $82,500 was awarded $30 million in new contracts. And a highway and civil site contracting firm that gave $22,500 saw its contracts grow 15-fold. They are just a few of the companies — mostly small and mid-sized construction firms — identified by The Intercept that saw a bonanza of lucrative contracts under the Republican governor, who has styled himself as a successor to Donald Trump and a foe to corporate America’s household names.
