Florida House candidate Cory Mills has faced controversy across social media as the state’s Tuesday primary approaches.
Mills is facing up against Florida State Rep. Anthony Sabatini (FL-32), a rising America First fighter and unashamed Trump supporter. Sabatini has received endorsements from a variety of powerful Republican figures such as U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, Rep. Matt Gaetz, Rep. Paul Gosar, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, Rep. Thomas Massie, and Rep. Louie Gohmert.
Mills’ endorsement record is full of more Republican establishment leaders like the pro-amnesty Rep. Mayra Flores, Rep. Brian Mast, and Sen. Ted Cruz. Sabatini supporters have suggested Mills is an aspiring RINO who is not a sincere America First, pro-Trump Republican.
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz claimed Mills photoshopped an image with former President Donald Trump. The campaign-produced image of Mills is so poorly doctored that he has three ears.
OMG what a fake!!! https://t.co/aFwhNGIibb

Political operative and Conservative influencer Cliff Maloney hammered Mills, claiming he spread lies about Sabatini and “REFUSED to vote for Desantis.”
Mills is a disgrace.
1. REFUSED to vote for DeSantis
2. Photoshopped himself with Trump
3. SILENT on support for our great Congressman @mattgaetz
4. LIES about the most conservative member of the Florida House @AnthonySabatini
VOTE @AnthonySabatini on Tuesday

Sabatini criticized Mills after he backstabbed Trump supporters by equating them to terrorists. Seemingly supporting the Democrat-led narrative surrounding the Jan. 6th witch hunt, Mills said “I’m pissed off that I fought in Iraq and Afghanistan fighting this terroristic behavior only to see it on our soil.”
Rep. Sabatini said individuals like Mills “need to be rooted out and totally eliminated from the @GOP.”
“I have ZERO tolerance for the sub-human trash like RINO Cory Mills who ATTACK #J6 protesters & call them terrorists—these vipers need to be rooted out and totally eliminated from the @GOP,” Sabatini posted on Twitter.

Despite images of Donald Trump being plastered all across Mills’ website, the former President has never endorsed the establishment-backed Mills.
