Ron DeSantis’s wife, Casey DeSantis, is undergoing treatment for breast cancer, and the left has taken her sickness as an opportunity to attack the Florida governor.
“DeSantis’s potential Democrat gubernatorial challenger Nikki Fried, who currently serves as the state’s Agricultural Commissioner, came under fire this week after accusing the governor of going into silence as coronavirus cases increase. However, according to his press secretary, the governor has used this time to be with his wife Casey DeSantis while she undergoes treatments for breast cancer,” according to Breitbart News.
“For days, Fried has attempted to weaponize the rise in coronavirus cases as a knock against the governor, who has championed personal liberty and stood against government intrusion in the state throughout the pandemic,” reported Breitbart News.

Press secretary for DeSantis, Christina Pushaw, shot back on social media, revealing that the governor has been attending his wife’s cancer treatments.
But if someone you love gets cancer, you wouldn't show up to their treatments? Wow.

The shots continued on Twitter and you can read them all here.
“Fried, who has inexplicably categorized DeSantis as a ‘dictator,’ trails DeSantis by double digits in a hypothetical matchup,” according to Breitbart News.
