Casey DeSantis is her husband’s biggest supporter and closest confidante.
Now that she is cancer free, Casey DeSantis is back on the trail campaigning for her husband.
And she just launched an ambitious plan to help Ron DeSantis win a second term as Governor.
Casey DeSantis has played an active role in her husband’s administration since he was first elected as Governor in 2018.
As an emmy-award winning television personality, Casey is a major asset for the Governor’s campaign.
However, last October she took a break from campaigning after announcing she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and would undergo chemotherapy treatment.
But in March, Ron DeSantis publicly announced that his wife was cancer free.
And for the last five weeks, Casey DeSantis has been resuming public events across the Sunshine State.
As First Lady, Casey DeSantis has primarily focused her work on child mental health, improving education, and cancer research.
But with her husband facing his first re-election in November, Casey DeSantis is turning her focus more on campaigning and speaking with voters.
On Tuesday, Casey DeSantis announced the launch of “Mamas for DeSantis,” which will work to elevate parental rights to the forefront of the political debate.
“Through the First Lady’s leadership, Mamas for DeSantis will work in partnership with Governor Ron DeSantis’s re-election campaign as a movement for Florida moms, grandmas, abuelas, nanas, and more to get involved in the re-election campaign,” read a press release. “With the goal of signing up a million mamas across the state of Florida, this initiative will be the largest movement of parents in Florida history.”
The Mamas for DeSantis website features an “issues” page that primarily focuses on parental rights, including supporting the Governor’s recently unveiled education agenda that calls on school board candidates to pledge their support to student-first leadership.
“From the Panhandle to the Keys, Florida’s mamas are the backbone of our families and communities — they are on the forefront of fighting for their family’s well-being, safety and prosperity,” the site states. “Thankfully, we have a pro-family leader in Florida who understands this. Gov. DeSantis has spent three and a half years enacting policies in support of our families. Because of his leadership, the Sunshine State has thrived.”
The site also praises Ron DeSantis for refusing to shut down schools and for banning masks and vaccine mandates during the pandemic.
Ron DeSantis told reporters that he is proud of his wife and the example she sets for their three children.
“I am proud to have Casey by my side, and I am grateful for the example she sets for our three children,” DeSantis said “And now, I am excited to work alongside her,” he continued, before adding that “we are working every day to make Florida the most pro-parent state in the nation, and Mamas for DeSantis gives a voice to mothers across the state.”
Ron DeSantis vowed to make 2022 the “Year of the Parent” in Florida.
And now his wife is helping him fulfill that promise by restoring parental rights in education.
