BROWARD COUNTY, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Florida Sen. Democratic Leader Lauren Book says that it’s time to hold Florida Governor Ron DeSantis accountable for his increasingly Anti-American approach to free speech, free thinking, and free press. Book joined me on South Florida’s First News on NewsRadio 610 WIOD. Listen to the complete interview, below.

Listen to Andrew Colton’s interview with State Senator and Senator Democratic Leader Lauren Book.

During our Monday morning interview, Book said the key to DeSantis is holding him accountable.

“Yeah, I think we’re constantly holding him accountable. And these are some of the things that we’re going to continue to talk about. Yes, I think is a terrible misstep. When Newt Gingrich is tweeting about how dangerous a piece of policy is for Republicans. I think people have heard it. I think people see it. I think people understand it. You know, hopefully people call him out on his book tour. To your point, like, you know, Fox and Friends. That’s his bread and butter. They’re not too happy about it, either.”

Book told me that times are “scary” and that Gov. DeSantis’ increasingly oppressive policies must be stopped.

“But it is truly truly horrific,” said Book. “You know, when you’re trying to have bloggers registered with the state, the First Amendment being completely trampled upon, you have to get a permit now, to assemble in the state capitol, have a lawmaker or an agency has sponsored and it must, quote, align with the vision of the state of Florida and the governor. This is scary, scary times.”
