Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (right) told a press conference on Friday that if Democrat Stacey Abrams wins Georgia’s upcoming gubernatorial election, it would lead to serious tensions between the two states, The hill reported.

“If Stacey Abrams is elected governor of Georgia, I just want to be honest, it’s going to be a cold war between Florida and Georgia,” DeSantis said. “I can’t have Castro in my south and Abrams in my north, it would be a disaster. So, I hope you take care of that, and we’ll end up in good shape.”

The current leader of Cuba is Miguel Díaz-Canel. Raúl Castro stepped down as first secretary of the Communist Party of Cuba in 2021, having succeeded his brother Fidel in 2011.

Abrams, a former Georgia state legislator, faces a rematch with Gov. Brian Kemp (R), who narrowly beat her in 2018. According to Fox News and NPR, Abrams never conceded the election of 2018. Instead, she issued a carefully worded statement acknowledging “that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the winner” while accusing Kemp of voter suppression.

Former President Donald Trump is backing former Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) in his primary campaign against Kemp, whom Trump condemned as a “defector” for refusing to overturn President Biden’s narrow 2020 victory in Georgia.

Kemp currently leads both Perdue and Abrams in the polls.
