“As somebody who’s a military officer, Iraq veteran and proven conservative, with the support of the president, I’m in a position to exercise the leadership that can build on the great work that Gov. Rick Scott has done to advance economic opportunity, reform education and drain the swamp in Tallahassee, which needs to be drained — just like Washington,” he said.
The congressman’s announcement follows the release of a poll that showed him leading a field of Republicans — including state agriculture commissioner Adam Putnam and House Speaker Richard Corcoran — vying for the state’s highest office. It also comes exactly two weeks after President Donald Trump fired off a tweet throwing his support behind DeSantis for governor.

“Congressman Ron DeSantis is a brilliant young leader, Yale and then Harvard Law, who would make a GREAT Governor of Florida. He loves our Country and is a true FIGHTER!” the tweet read.
