Behind in the polls against Democratic nominee Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum, former U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., is getting some help from a veterans group. 

Concerned Veterans for America Action (CVAA) announced on Tuesday that it will help DeSantis with a six-figure direct mail effort. 

The new mailer focuses on DeSantis’ service and his efforts to reform the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). CVAA praised DeSantis for backing reforms to the Veterans Choice Program (VCP) and his efforts to hold underperforming and incompetent VA employees accountable. 

CVAA also cheered the Republican for encouraging the VA to embrace alternative therapies. 

“In light of scandals showing the VA routinely overprescribed medication, DeSantis embraced alternative forms of treatment to treat veterans while mitigating medication dependency issues. In 2017, DeSantis introduced the Puppies Assisting Wounded Service members Act of 2017 (PAWS Act), which would create an innovative pilot program that would create a private-public partnership with nonprofits to test the use of service dogs to treat PTSD. The program would be paid for by cutting VA overhead,” CVAA noted.  

“During his time in Congress, Ron DeSantis demonstrated that he was a steadfast champion for veterans and we are confident he will continue to be their champion in Tallahassee,” said Dan Caldwell, a senior advisor for CVAA. “Floridians and Florida veterans will be well served with DeSantis as governor, and we urge them to vote for him this November.”

I bait hooks EVERY morning and cast them out on "SSN"; and EVERY day I catch the same three rotten sucker fish ("jerry"; 'Ted kruse"; and "pasture breeze" (whom I call "fart"); and a number of their ignorant, liberal ilk)... They ALL seem to possess a 'one word vocabulary' = 'racist', and they wield it indiscriminently at anyone NOT in agreement with their liberal nonsense. Maybe YOU have caught one, or more, of these "swimming against the tide" sucker fish yourself, and "thrown them back"... Just remember" it's illegal to kill them,...so, just "roast" them a bit and toss them overboard... That's what I often do...to "garbage fish"!

Lmao I like that but I don’t fish. I troll hunt and tell them to crawl back under their bridge!

I fully support the decision by Concerned Veterans for America to go to bat for the DeSantis/ Núñez ticket. I also show my support for our Veterans by volunteering with the Concerned Veterans for America in Jacksonville, FL. G.K. Chesterton, English author said: "The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him." The DeSantis/Núñez ticket will work to assure our state stays strong and prospers. To all those who died for this nation, we will never forget the sacrifice that you made. To all those who are serving or will serve in the future we say , 'Thank you for your service!" Ron DeSantis is a Veteran and a proven leader who will continue his fight to keep Florida and this great nation free. We must help him assume the role as Governor of the State of Florida after the General Election. Let's bring the DeSantis/ Núñez to victory on November 6, 2018! Vote DeSantis/ Núñez for Governor!

Ron DeSantis had nothing to do with any of that, but of course in true Trump fashion, he will take credit for all of it...too funny.

If Ron DeSantis is the best that the Republican Party can put up to be governor of Florida, then the Republican Party of Florida is off the rails, and this veterans' group is really misguided.

DeSantis is an American patriot with a strong desire to keep Florida free from sanctuary cities and crime. Gillum on the other hand took Tallahassee from 15th in the state to FIRST in Florida in CRIME. Tallahassee's revenues were plundered by Gillum and his crony lobbyist pals who now direct his campaign. Florida would become the armpit of the east under Gillum.

21 veterans commit suicide daily in the United States. The Republican Party in the state of Florida have for years turned Blind Eye to expanding Healthcare which would benefit veterans. How many died in the state of Florida simply because the GOP has failed to expand Medicaid. No one should have to die because they lack health care benefits it is a disgrace did it happens more then you think. At 2 that the republican-led legislature who are in cahoots with lobbyist corruption at the highest levels. Gop are done come NOVEMBER. This is an ALT right under the cover of the Republican Party. We will remember in November!

Veterans! Lest you forget, who's screwing you NOW! Republicans. Ron Desantis talks a great game while campaigning for your vote. But DO NOT forget who he's obedient to. I was willing to give Trump a chance, but he's squeezing the little man out of the equation. Veterans too. How does one raise military spending, while at the same time neglecting veterans. I'm sure Andrew Gillam has faults too, but I, for one, am tired of the wolf in sheeps clothing, that the Republicans, have become. They don't care about you and me.

Are you kidding? Or misinformed? President Trump signed the VA Accountability Act and Whistleblower Bill into law in June 2017 after Congress, with its Republican majority, voted for the law. When it comes to veterans, the Republican led Representatives and Senators and President have done a great service, although more needs to be done and is in process. CVA, a non partisan organization, is doing great work for our veterans.

CCVA stands for Concerned Veterans for America and is located in Arlington, VA. We are Veterans from every branch of uniformed service and every conflict from WWII to the Global War on Terror and (no Jerry whatever your last name is) we are not a "dark money out of state group" and yup, we have an active office at CVA port St Lucie Office 1629 SE Port Saint Lucie Blvd, Pt Saint Lucie, 34952. Have a great day and remember Thank a Veteran!

One notes you never said you were not a dark money group. Can we see a list of your donors and how many members do you have?...…… Your website says you are an out of state group with Florida branch...……... Not nice trying to deceive.……..If your mission is what your weak on info website says, why are you backing DeSantis?...………..His record of stopping congress from doing anything along with about 30 other far right house members certainly doesn't enhance your, our national security, economy...………….Now the deficit largely from DeSantis votes is hitting a $1T deficit to give tax cuts to the 1% and corporation with the goal of bankrupting the country so it cuts Medicare, Medicaid, Vet care because they can't afford it excuse...………….So you are down with that?...…………..Are you down with his racist dog howls, no longer even whistles?...…………What about Trump's Gregory?...……. And how is the repub corporate welfare caused algae bloom there going?

Whom is CVAA? ………………..Another out of state dark money front group? …………..How many members? …………………..Most of DeSantis money, ads are coming from these groups so they can have a puppet to control. ……………….Watch 'Frontline on PBS Dark Money' show what they did in Montana, Wisconsin, etc to steal the lection by out of state corporate interests...………..And I keep getting the same type things in the mail, TV ads that are disgusting lies both by them and even the candidates like DeSantis ad that chops up a Gillum quote with a totally different group trying to show Gillum said things he didn't.---------------In fact it just pisses me off more to vote and get others to vote for decent people, few of which are repub anymore as they have left the party or driven out even...…………..You jumped the shark when you ran Crist out there being no room for repubs for the people, though lots for the corporations.

Dear Jerry, Your passionate comment may get more respect if your spelling and punctuation were correct. Your facts are not correct. Mayor/Governor candidate Andrew Gillum said himself on video that he has a 15 year relationship with George Soros and accepted a donation from George Soros for his campaign for Governor. Jerry, yes, the donation was quite sizable and noteworthy. Jerry, yes, George Soros is from outside of Florida. Come to a CVA meeting. You'll meet very courteous people and learn useful information.

Lady, do you REALLY think that Republican money is somehow innately CLEANER than Democratic money ??? And, do you believe that 'Koch money' is cleaner than 'Soros money' because the Koch's LIVE IN FLORIDA ??? You're peddling purely partisan claptrap!

George Soros is a great man putting his money to spread democracy yet you, repubs make him out as a bad guy. Why?...………..And Gillum never said he didn't take Soro's money...………….Vs others who hide and do the bidding of corporations whom have bought DeSantis, other repubs especially...………. So where do you get your money in detail please?

Did George Soros or his Padawan Tom Steyer send you a payment? They should.
