In the Florida governor’s race, the contrast on taxes between the GOP and Democrat candidates could not be starker.

In the Florida governor’s race, the contrast on taxes between the GOP and Democrat candidates could not be starker.

Despite years of economic progress under Governor Rick Scott’s approach of cutting taxes, Democrat gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum has proposed a massive tax hike on businesses, while Democrat gubernatorial candidates Gwen Graham and Jeff Greene have argued that Floridians are “undertaxed.”

Now, the leading Republican gubernatorial candidates, Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis, are standing up for Florida taxpayers, pledging that they will not raise taxes if elected governor.

The record is clear: Florida’s Republican gubernatorial candidates are standing up for taxpayers, while the Florida Democrat gubernatorial candidates are prepared to force Florida’s families to pay more.

Sunshine State News reports:

“The two leading Republican gubernatorial candidates in Florida–U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis and state Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam–have signed a pledge from Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) promising not to raise taxes.”
