Carlos Beruff Fires Back at Ron DeSantis
After U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., pained him as a “Charlie Crist Republican,” businessman and new U.S. Senate candidate Carlos Beruff fired back on Friday morning.
Beruff’s team pointed to emails DeSantis sent their boss asking for fundraising support. In those emails, DeSantis showcased his backing from Karl Rove and American Crossroads PAC.
“Voters are sick and tired of the games being played in Washington,” said Chris Hartline, a spokesman for Beruff. “While Congressman Ron DeSantis claims to be an outsider who hasn’t been changed by Washington, his actions speak louder than his words. If it looks like a Washington insider and it quacks like a Washington insider, you better believe it’s a Washington insider. There is only one candidate in this race who’s a true conservative outsider, and that’s Carlos Beruff.”
DeSantis’ team insisted the congressman was only trying to arrange a courtesy meeting with Beruff. Brad Harold, DeSantis‘ campaign manager, doubled down on his attacks against Beruff, on Friday.
“Ron DeSantis has never met or had a conversation with Charlie Crist Republican, Carlos Beruff," Harold said. “But if Mr. Beruff would like to change his mind and support our campaign to help us fight his brand of crony capitalism in Washington, we’d gladly take it. It would be the first time he’s supported the conservative candidate in a U.S. Senate race in Florida.”
