Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) announced a new secretary of state Friday after the incumbent tendered her resignation this week.

State Rep. Cord Byrd, a Republican whose district is in the Jacksonville area, was selected to fill the impending vacancy for the position that oversees Florida’s election systems.

The article goes on to state the following:

Byrd has served all six years of his time in the lower chamber as a member of the Public Integrity and Elections Committee and has sponsored several pieces of legislation, including the Parental Rights in Education bill, dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by critics, which restricts classroom lessons on sexual orientation and gender identity from kindergarten through third grade.

“As Secretary of State, I will make sure Florida continues to have secure elections and that we protect the freedom of our citizens in the face of big-tech censorship and ever-growing cybersecurity threats,” Byrd said in a statement.

“Cord Byrd has been an ally of freedom and democracy in the Florida Legislature, and I am confident he will carry that mission forward as secretary of state,” DeSantis said in a statement. “I look forward to his successes ensuring Florida’s elections remain safe, secure and well-administered.”

The appointment angered some Twitter users who felt Byrd was to a solid choice for the state.

Gun violence activist Shannon Watts tweeted, “The wife of Florida’s new Secretary of State supported the Capitol riot, says the world is ruled by Satan-worshipping child molesters, and the couple flies a QAnon flag on their boat.”

Florida’s Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried blasted the “reckless appointment.”

She wrote, “The Secretary of State should serve the people of Florida, but Cord Byrd today was appointed because he will serve only Ron DeSantis. This reckless appointment should make every Floridian question Ron DeSantis’ commitment to free, fair, and democratic elections.”

Another gun violence activist, Fred Guttenberg, warned Floridians about Byrd.

He wrote, “Watch out Florida. @GovRonDeSantis selected Cord Bird as next Secretary of State, in charge of elections. His wife supported the January 6th insurrection and the election lies. This is an anti Democracy pick.”

  1. Blah blah blah. Same crybabies, different day. Do you really think Desantis’ opponent would praise his pick. It’s all a game and the libtards are too predictable.

  2. He demon-crats, if you aren’t happy with this selection, just wait and see how unhappy you’ll be after DeSantis is reelected by double digits in November!🤣🤗

  3. Same here. When I see the left crying about Jan 6th, it just reminds me how disturbed they are. Eventually this unprecedented abuse of power is going to come out and it’s going to blow up in their faces. The more they abuse their power, the further they damage their political party.

  4. Nikki Freed I will guarantee you was installed not duly elected theres no way she beat Matt Caldwell…shes a useless do nothing but run her mouth dem.

  5. Hey DML what’s up with the headline to this article?! It’s very misleading. I’m very confused. Explain please. I only see pushback from the left. And that pushback is predictable. As for controversial?! Only to the left. The headline would be valid if it was universal across the board. Sorry but the headline needs to be fixed.

    • As I understand it, Dennis’ site is a news aggregation site.

      He gathers articles, and publishes them on his site as they were written / headlined. He leaves the entire article, including the headline, as originally published.

      Since this is cited as being originally published by The Washington Examiner, your quarrel is with them, not Dennis.
