Mr. Polis noted the dispute between Florida Republicans and Disney as it escalated into the revocation of the Orlando-area amusement park’s special tax status by writing on Twitter that “Florida’s authoritarian socialist attacks on the private sector are driving businesses away.”
“In CO, we don’t meddle in affairs of companies like Disney or Twitter. Hey Disney we’re ready for Mountain Disneyland and twitter we’re ready for Twitter HQ2, whoever your owners are,” Mr. Polis tweeted.
The fight between Disney and Florida is rooted in the entertainment giant’s corporate criticism of a new law limiting sex education and teacher discussion of sex and gender in the lower grades, a bill liberal opponents framed as the “Don’t Say Gay Bill.” Mr. Polis is gay.
While Twitter is headquartered in San Francisco, it also has major offices in Miami and the Colorado university town of Boulder.
