Democrats are giving up on hopes of mass victories in Florida while the Sunshine State continues to stand as what Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has described as “America’s liberty outpost,” as the left admits they have gotten their “butts kicked” in recent months.

A Friday article in Politico delved into how the Sunshine State has the Biden White House and Democrats “stumped” as Democrats have failed to see any significant victories in recent times.

Over the course of Biden’s presidency — and even prior to that — the Florida legislature, along with DeSantis, have challenged establishment media norms, forging their own path ahead — from taking on vaccine mandates to championing parental rights. And because of that, Democrats are thinking twice about dumping money into the state.

“If you were to ask me, does Florida give you as good a return on investment as other places? Clearly right now it does not,” Democratic National Committee Finance Director Chris Korge said, according to Politico. “We got our butts kicked in Florida recently. Our butts kicked.”

However, he said Democrat leaders do not think it is wise to divest form the state completely, contending that it is smarter to make progress in the state before DeSantis rises further into popularity, particularly if he decides to run for president later in his political career.

“I think the White House absolutely thinks we need to be engaged there now rather than waiting until 2024 when it becomes more expensive to stop [DeSantis],” he said. “We are going to be engaged in the midterm and, you can quote me on this, the DNC is absolutely not giving up on Florida.”

It appears, however, that the White House strategy is to challenge DeSantis and his policies, targeting the man rather than the platform itself:

But Biden in recent weeks has taken a more confrontational approach with DeSantis. Biden and his administration recently hammered the governor for making his state the only one in the country to not pre-order pediatric Covid-19 vaccines. White House Covid response coordinator Ashish Jha even held a briefing with Florida reporters, where he called DeSantis’ move “unconscionable.”

Biden also issued an executive order banning programs that receive federal money from offering conversion therapy, a direct response to the DeSantis administration pushing to end state-funded gender-affirming care for transgender minors. DeSantis’ health department also crafted a rationale to justify banning Medicaid from paying for puberty blockers for transgender people.

But DeSantis has stood firm on his administration’s moves. More recently, he defended the state not recommending the vaccines for children as young as six months, contending there is not enough data to back it up.

“They [the establishment media] came out with an article saying the state of Florida has not ordered, its Department of Health has not ordered mRNA jabs for the babies. Yes, we recommend against it. We are not going to have any programs where we’re trying to jab six-month-old babies with mRNA. That’s just the reality,” he said.

White House allies affirmed that they are not necessarily writing off Florida, but it appears attacking DeSantis remains the tactic:

John Morgan, an Orlando attorney and major Democratic donor, said in a text message that there is one simple reason the White House will continue to focus on Florida: “More electoral votes,” he said. “It’s not off the radar.”

The left’s strategy comes months after Republicans overtook Democrats in voter registration in the state.

“Back in 2008 … there were 650,000 more Democrats in the state of Florida. Today, we have 140,00 more Republicans in the state…  So we’re approaching right there almost 800,000 net increase for the Republican Party of Florida because everything we’re doing here protecting and promoting freedom’s working,” Christian Ziegler, vice chairman of the Republican Party of Florida, told Breitbart News earlier this month.

Charles Payne and others expose hidden problems with booming jobs report, Peter Doocy presses White House about disappointing economic statistic

Citing Household Survey Data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Payne noted that full-time jobs dropped by 71,000, while part-time jobs increased by 384,000, and people who held multiple jobs rose by 92,000.

The report also found that there were 279,000 fewer people who were self-employed.

Federal Reserve Economic Data revealed that 433,000 Americans are working two full-time jobs – which is an all-time high.

\u201c433,000 Americans now working 2 full time jobs.\nThat is an all time high.\u201d — Frog Capital (@Frog Capital) 1659720907

Just The News reported, "This trend of the economy dropping full-time jobs while adding second and part-time jobs has been accelerating since March."

Many people suggest that the surge in part-time jobs and people getting multiple jobs is because they are facing soaring inflation month after month. In July, inflation hit 9.1% – the highest in more than 40 years.

Despite the Biden administration insisting that the country is not in a recession, key economic statistics suggest otherwise.

According to CNSNews, "The number of Americans not in the labor force – no job and not looking for one – climbed above the 100,000,000 mark again, settling at 100,051,000 in July. That's a 239,000 increase from June; and it follows an increase of 510,000 from May to June, when the number rose to 99,812,000."

\u201cOver 100 million people who 'can' work are not.\n1,016,000 people have left the labor force since March of this year.\nThese people still consume, but now are not producing.\nBy definition, this creates inflation.\u201d — Frog Capital (@Frog Capital) 1659788544

The BLS announced that real average hourly earnings were down 3.6% year-over-year for June.

Brownstone Institute president Jeffrey A. Tucker said, "We are living through the longest consecutive month-by-month decline in real personal disposable income since 1959, and it is combined with a most recent 16% increase debt service as a percent of that same income stream. Translation: dramatic moves toward personal impoverishment."

The Wall Street Journal pointed out, "The labor-force participation rate—or the share of adults working or seeking a job – ticked down to 62.1% in July from 62.2% a month earlier."

"While the economy has recovered all the jobs it lost since February 2020, there are still 623,000 fewer people in the workforce, a factor that has pushed up wages due to a demand for workers that is well above the number of available workers," the outlet added.

Before the pandemic, the participation rate was 63.4% in February 2020.

The BLS defines the labor force participation rate as "the number of people in the labor force as a percentage of the civilian noninstitutional population," and "the participation rate is the percentage of the population that is either working or actively looking for work."

New York Times economic reporter Ben Casselman wrote, "The labor force participation rate actually fell slightly in July, a discouraging sign for those hoping the strong labor market would bring workers off the sidelines. Participation ticked up slightly among prime-age workers, but remains below its May peak."

Former Federal Reserve insider Danielle DiMartino said, "Warning in the weeds: Labor force participation rate AND wage growth falling most among those who benefited the most from the post-pandemic stimulus spending."

On Friday, Fox News White House reporter Peter Doocy confronted White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre about the declining labor participation rate.

Doocy asked, "The labor force participation rate is at its lowest level of the year now. Why do you think that is?"

Jean-Pierre replied, "So, participation actually ticked up."

Doocy interjected, "It declined 0.1 percentage points to 62.1 percent — the lowest level of the year."

Jean-Pierre responded, "So it actually ticked up for prime-age workers, when you look at 25 to 54, and for workers 65 and plus. The tick down this month was actually about teenagers. And it’s important to keep in mind that the labor force participation rate has bounced back relatively quickly compared to its pace in the past. So we have seen an uptick in the labor force."
