Ana Navarro says Gov. DeSantis beat Crist because he ‘gamed the system,’ had a ‘political corpse’ as an opponent



CNN political commentator Ana Navarro on Wednesday claimed that Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) beat Democrat Charlie Crist in the gubernatorial race because he “gamed the system.”

“I’ve been dying to talk about Florida, and I think it’s being completely misread. I think the narrative is all wrong,” she said.

“I told you he was going to win bigly, but listen, Ron DeSantis barely won in 2018 by 35,000 votes by the skin of his teeth against a Black, progressive, little-known mayor from Tallahassee, Florida,” Navarro said, adding: “Yesterday, he won by 20 percentage points, Why? Because he gamed the system.”

Navarro argued that DeSantis created an “unlevel playing field” that favored him in the midterm election.

Navarro explained, “They changed election laws making it harder to vote by mail. They paraded a bunch of people — Black people that they arrested for voting fraud and paraded them in front of national media. He created an election police. He also was very good in responding to hurricanes and other tragedies… he also invested and laser-focused on Miami-Dade.”

Navarro then suggested that DeSantis only won because Crist, who served as governor of Florida from 2007 to 2011, was a “political corpse.”

“Who can blame them when you nominate a corpse?” Navarro said. “I mean, yes, [DeSantis] won bigly, but he won against a corpse, a political corpse. And that’s an insult to corpses.”

“Crist’s career has been dead for years. He’s now lost 5 statewide races – as a Republican, an Independent and a Dem,” Navarro later added in a tweet.
