Republicans LIKE BIG Business…
They fight for it day and night….
Ron DeSantis ain’t rowing with them….
They ain’t happy with the Republican Governor running for President….
That includes Republicans IN Florida….Including Donald Trump….
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’s battle with Disney has gone too far in the view of some Republican lawmakers who are growing increasingly worried about preserving the GOP’s traditional reputation as a pro-business party focused on economic growth and job creation.
Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.), who served as Florida’s governor from 2011 to 2019, says it’s time for “cooler heads to prevail,” noting Disney is a major employer that draws in huge numbers of tourists who boost the state economy.
Scott says the legislation DeSantis signed to prohibit classroom instruction about gender orientation to young children, which sparked the feud, “was a good bill,” but he stressed Disney’s importance to the state economy.
“This is the biggest or second-biggest employer in the state. Half the tourism that comes to our state comes to visit Disney. It’s a reason people come to our state.

Former President Donald Trump, DeSantis’s likely rival for the presidential nomination, attacked the governor Thursday for “single-handedly” costing his home state a major investment.
Trump predicted Disney may wind up changing course on plans to spend $17 billion on a separate investment into Disney World.
“DeSanctus is being absolutely destroyed by Disney,” Trump posted on his Truth Social platform, using a derisive nickname for the Florida governor.
“His original P.R. plan fizzled, so now he’s going back with a new one in order to save face. Disney’s next move will be the announcement that no more money will be invested in Florida because of the Governor,” Trump wrote….
