This is not good.
Last night Casey DeSantis was beside her husband, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, when being interviewed by Martha MacCallum on FOX News. During the interview Ms. DeSantis made statements that would indicate she is pushing voter fraud:
During interview w/ @marthamaccallum, Casey DeSantis called on an out-of-state coalition of mothers and grandmothers “to descend upon the state of Iowa to be a part of the caucus” and “let their voices be heard.”
“You do not have to be a resident of Iowa,” she said. pic.twitter.com/Z8FsKrFM0K

The Trump Team released a statement on Casey DeSantis’ apparent embrace of voter fraud.
Yesterday, Casey DeSantis went on national television and called on voters from across the nation to “descend upon the state of Iowa to be a part of the caucus.” She went on to falsely claim, “you do not have to be a resident of Iowa to be able to participate in the caucus.”
Statement from Karoline Leavitt, spokeswoman for Make America Great Again Inc: “Casey DeSantis’ embrace of voter fraud to salvage her husband’s failing campaign is not just wrong, it risks compromising the integrity of the Iowa Caucus. This type of irresponsible and desperate rhetoric must be addressed by both Ron DeSantis and Governor Kim Reynolds, who campaigned for election integrity and was elected to protect the votes of Iowans. Both Governors DeSantis and Reynolds must reject and condemn these comments and apologize to the great people of Iowa!”
President Trump minutes ago shared a press release with his thoughts on this matter:
After the DeSantises Purposefully Spread False Election News to Commit Organized Voter Fraud in the Iowa Caucus, Voters Demand Kim Reynolds Must Declare a Free and Fair Election
Safe and secure elections are the bedrock of our democracy, and either the DeSantises are purposefully spreading false information or they are too uninformed about the Iowa Caucus to properly educate caucus-goers on how to participate in the process. These people have no idea what they’re doing and are simply engaging in play-pretend politics.
We demand the Governor of Iowa Kim Reynolds clarify what the rules are and that the instructions given by the DeSantises are flagrantly wrong that could further disenfranchise caucus-goers. Even the Republican Party of Iowa had to immediately issue a response to the DeSantises wrong information.
The DeSantises specifically said they were calling on their campaign coalition groups of out-of-state, non-Iowa residents to illegally “descend on the caucus” and try to cast a vote.
The Trump campaign strongly condemns their dirty and illegal tactics and implores all Trump supporters to be aware of the DeSantises’ openly stated plot to rig the Caucus through fraud.
