Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and his team have been praised for their successful governance, with recent events demonstrating their ability to respond effectively to baseless attacks.
DeSantis’ campaign spokeswoman, Christina Pushaw, shut down New York City Mayor Eric Adams when he sarcastically welcomed DeSantis to the city and criticized Florida.
Pushaw responded with facts that exposed Adams’ ignorance, highlighting that crime rates in Florida are at a 50-year low, while major crime in New York City surged by 23% in 2022.
This is not the first time that DeSantis has been targeted by blue-state leaders. In September, California Governor Gavin Newsom criticized DeSantis’ COVID response in ads, only to be countered by DeSantis with facts.
DeSantis pointed out that while Newsom was locking down his citizens, he was enjoying extravagant dinners at the French Laundry, whereas Florida was protecting individual freedoms and lifting people up.
DeSantis is outperforming blue-state leaders in many areas, with crime and homelessness surging in their states, and their COVID responses being both draconian and ineffective.
It’s no surprise that DeSantis is gaining national attention and is being touted as a potential presidential candidate in 2024. He is doing a fantastic job in Florida and is not afraid to stand up to the failed leaders of blue states who are attacking him with weak rhetoric and misguided policies.
DeSantis’ success comes from his willingness to put people first and to make tough decisions that improve their lives. Protecting individual freedoms and lifting people up is a winning formula for success. With his team, including Pushaw, armed with facts, they are ready to shut down any baseless attacks.
It’s time to take note of and support leaders who put people first, lift them up, and protect their freedoms. With DeSantis at the helm, the future looks bright for Florida, and potentially, the nation.
