'Oh God no': Twitter fiercely rejects GOP House candidate's vow to 'make the country more like Florida'
Florida State Representative Anthony Sabatini (R-32nd District) (@AnthonySabatini/Twitter).

A Republican candidate for the United States House of Representatives is being trolled on Twitter for vowing to turn the nation into a bigger version of his home state if he is elected in November.

"I’m running for Congress to make the country more like Florida," State Representative Anthony Sabatini (32nd District) wrote on Friday morning.

Sabatini is running for an open seat in Florida's 7th Congressional District, whose incumbent Democratic Representative Stephanie Murphy is not seeking reelection. Two Democrats, meanwhile, are vying for their party's nomination.

Sabatini's claims to fame include but are not limited to:

Sabatini, an ex-Democrat who espouses fealty to Trump's Big Lie, also proposed a bill last September demanding an audit of Florida's 2020 election results. It was immediately rejected.

So was his pledge to force Florida onto the rest of us.
