On Monday, Democrat Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, a leading contender to challenge GOP governor Ron DeSantis in 2022, claimed in a radio interview that DeSantis was seeking a “race war and a cultural war” because he has staunchly opposed the teaching of Critical Race Theory in public schools. Fried was speaking on WJCT-FM’s “First Coast Connect” about the Florida Board of Education deciding to ban the teaching of Critical Race Theory in public schools when she stated, “This is another opportunity for the governor to create a race war and cultural war, inside of our state.” Republican Governors’ Association spokesperson Joanna Rodriguez blasted Fried, asserting, “Nikki Fried’s accusations against the Governor aren’t just desperate, they’re dangerous. Fried has shown repeatedly that she’s incapable of being truthful about pretty much anything. Her resorting to lies and malicious manipulations on her own liberal biography and views on critical race theory are just more of the same,” Florida Politics reported.
