As the two Republican heavyweights compete for their party’s 2024 presidential candidacy, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis reportedly appeared to take a subtle dig at former President Donald Trump on Friday.
DeSantis talked urgently about some of the Left’s nationwide programs at the Moms for Liberty event in Philadelphia. He focused in particular on their efforts to expose young children to explicit sexual content and goals.
“And this has gone on across this country for far too long. 2024 is the time to put up or shut up. No more excuses about why we can’t win against the Left; no more excuses about why you didn’t do what you said you would do. The time to act is now, and I believe if we do it right, 2024 is going to be the year when the parents across this country finally fight back.” DeSantis said.

“Now it can be done, because I can tell you in Florida, we have shown what winning looks like. We have beat the Left on issue after issue after issue. And we were able to deliver the greatest Republican electoral triumph in our state’s history in November of 2022. This can happen nationally. We will win these battles all across the nation.” he continued.
“Now in Florida, we didn’t just give lip service to this, because it’s very easy to do that, people talk and then you never see follow up. We have enacted a Parent’s Bill of Rights in the state of Florida because we understand that the purpose of our school systems are to support the communities, to support students, and parents; it is not to supersede the rights of parents. Parents, parents have a fundamental right to direct the education and upbringing of their children and that means being involved in what is being taught in their school. It also means that every parent in this country should be able to have the wherewithal to send their kid to the school of their choice. We’ve made that a reality in Florida. We’ve signed Universal Education Savings Account legislation so the money will follow the student and the parent and you’re in a situation where you can make intelligent decisions. And what we’ve done in Florida has worked.” he concluded.
