Florida Governor Ron DeSantis continues to build momentum ahead of his re-election campaign this November.
That’s bad news for Democrats.
And one fact about Ron DeSantis will give Democrats nightmares every night.
Governor DeSantis did not endorse any Republican Congressional candidates ahead of the August 23 primary.
But candidates in every race feature DeSantis name image on campaign mailers and communications.
Gov. Ron DeSantis hasn’t endorsed a single Republican running for Congress in Florida this year. But that hasn’t stopped GOP candidates from tying themselves to him.
Republicans vying for Congress — and countless more in down-ballot races — are using DeSantis’ photo in campaign mailers and television ads and are dropping his name in debates ahead of the Aug. 23 primary. The use of DeSantis in Republican contests is rivaling, and even sometimes surpassing, that of former President Donald Trump, who has handed out congressional endorsements in several Florida elections.
When Governor DeSantis won election in 2018, Florida was still the quintessential swing state.
DeSantis defeated Democrat Andrew Gillum by 30,000 votes in a typically close Florida Governor’s election.
But in the following four years, Florida solidified as a solid red state.
That political shift is due in large part to Governor DeSantis successfully implementing a popular conservative agenda.
DeSantis’ star took off when DeSantis rejected Dr. Fauci’s demand for an endless lockdown during the COVID pandemic.
That fall, DeSantis kept schools open and refused to impose a statewide mask mandate.
When Joe Biden and Dr. Fauci pushed the idea of vaccine passports, Governor DeSantis issued executive orders banning businesses and entertainment venues from requiring Floridians to show proof of vaccination to enter.
Governor DeSantis also launched a successful two front fight against the Left’s woke ideology.
First, Governor DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education Bill, which banned teachers from grooming children with sexualized curriculum about transgenderism.
When Disney CEO Bob Chapek folded in the face of an employee revolt and released a statement claiming Disney wanted to see the bill defeated, DeSantis fought back.
Instead of rolling over for woke corporations like Mike Pence did when he was Governor of Indiana, DeSantis signed legislation stripping Disney of its special tax privileges.
It’s no surprise that every Republican in Florida wants to be associated with Governor DeSantis.
DeSantis may be the most successful conservative the state has ever seen.
