Democratic Representative-elect Maxwell Alejandro Frost addressed the women of “ViewFriday to discuss why the midterm elections in Florida were so bad for the Democratic Party.
Frost claimed Democratic voters “just didn’t show up” while co-host Ana Navarro pointed the finger directly at Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist, calling his run a “debacle” and calling him a “Pillow” Gov. Ron DeSantis, R-Fla., Beat “Stuffing Of”.
Frost, who was hailed as the first Gen Z member elected to the U.S. Congress, represented a rare victory for the Democratic Party on Tuesday in Florida, amid massive Republican victories in the gubernatorial race and in the race for US Senate.
POTENTIAL RED WAVE TURNS TO TRICKLE IN DISAPPOINTING MIDTERM ELECTIONS FOR REPUBLICANS
The Democratic defeats in Florida were so deep that they prompted Navarro to ask the guest what he saw was wrong with the state, while providing his own theories.
The host broached the subject while tearing into Crist, saying, “So you were the bright spot for the Democrats in what was a debacle night in Florida, I think largely because they named a pillow to run for governor, and Ron DeSantis beat the stuffing on that pillow.”
Navarro has been criticizing Crist for some time. In September, she interviewed the contestant and told him to his face that she thought he was a “political mercenary“who changes political party for “convenience”.
During their conversation, Navarro grilled Crist on the fact that he was once a Republican running for office on a platform that championed traditional marriage and pro-life policies.
On Friday, Navarro asked Frost, “Tell me, how do you see what happened in Florida? Do you see it as a red wave? Peel away some of the layers of the onion for us.”

Frost denied it was a red wave and argued the Democrats lost because they didn’t show up to vote. He said: “For me, a red wave is when there are just more Republican voters than ever before and that’s not what happened. What happened is that the Democrats didn’t show up.”
He went on to say, “And so for me, there’s a lot of soul-searching that we need to do as a party in the state to figure out how we’re going to organize the whole year, something that my campaign is going to do in January. “
Frost added: “We won’t stop knocking on doors, we won’t stop making phone calls. Because at the end of the day, when it’s election time, if you’ve built trust with your voter, you don’t you have to persuade them to vote for you, you just have to remind them to go vote.

Frost claimed Democrats waited too long to persuade their constituents in Florida. He said: “The Democrats were seeing the early voting numbers in Florida, and I saw all the candidates come out and start persuading the Democrats to go out and say, ‘This is important, we have to protect democracy. , we must protect abortion.'”
The congressman-elect concluded, “But really going forward, we need to be in a place where voters are already going out, and what we’re doing is just getting the vote out and letting people know where the voters are. polling stations.”
