DeSantis Team Claps Back After Harris Calls For Race-Based Storm Aid

  • Vice President Kamala Harris said during the Democratic National Committee’s Women’s Leadership Forum relief aid for Hurricane Ian victims should be “based on equity.”
  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ staff immediately challenged Harris.
  • DeSantis’ spokeswoman, Christina Pushaw, tweeted: “This is false. @VP‘s rhetoric is causing undue panic and must be clarified. FEMA Individual Assistance is already available to all Floridians impacted by Hurricane Ian, regardless of race or background. If you need assistance visit or call 1-800-621-3362,” Pushaw tweeted.
