Ron DeSantis turned Florida into an oasis of freedom for the entire world.
Floridians are benefiting the most from DeSantis’ bold leadership.
And Florida just surpassed New York and finished #1 in this key area for the first time since 2001 thanks to Ron DeSantis.
Ron DeSantis made the bold decision over the past two years to stand and fight for freedom.
He rejected Biden’s pandemic rules and regulations and fought back against the woke Left.
And today Florida is much better off than the rest of the country thanks to DeSantis’ leadership.
During his second inaugural address on Tuesday, Ron DeSantis listed eight different areas where “Florida is leading the nation.”
One of the areas is tourism.
As DeSantis noted in his inaugural address, Florida “served as the most desired destination, a promised land of sanity” for the rest of the country.
“Florida tourism continues to reach new heights thanks to VISIT FLORIDA’s strategic marketing initiatives in tandem with the initiatives of our tourism partners throughout the state,” VISIT FLORIDA President and CEO Dana Young said.
Young credited Ron Desantis’ “support and leadership” for helping Florida’s tourism industry have such an “amazing” year.
“Quarter after quarter, our vacation message has clearly resonated with travelers far and wide, and delivered record-breaking results on behalf of all Floridians,” Young said. “We appreciate Governor Ron DeSantis’ support and leadership that have helped get us here today, and are looking forward to leading Florida’s number one industry to even more success in 2023.”
104.5 million people visited Florida from January through September of 2022, an increase of 4.1 percent from the same period in 2019 and over 15.3 percent more than in 2021.
New York is one state that implemented the most strict COVID rules and regulations, with political leaders in the Empire State frequently attacking DeSantis over his opposition to vaccine and mask mandates.
But the data continues to show that DeSantis made the right decision.
According to VISIT FLORIDA, the Sunshine State “grew its market share of overseas visitors by 21 percent, surpassing New York as the #1 destination in America for the first time since 2001.”
Ron DeSantis promised during his inaugural address that “we are far from done” with achieving results in Florida.
DeSantis promised to “enact a record amount of tax relief, particularly for Florida families who are grappling with inflation” as well as defend against “the floundering federal establishment in Washington, D.C.”
Floridians gave DeSantis a mandate with his 19-point victory.
And he is not wasting any time pushing ahead with his conservative agenda.
