Florida Governor and Republican presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis reportedly stated on Friday that he is “fully prepared” to challenge California Governor Gavin Newsom in the event that President Joe Biden withdraws as the Democratic nominee.
During a Blaze TV event that was moderated by Tucker Carlson, DeSantis likened the freedom in his state to the alleged “public defecation” in large cities around California.
“I’m fully prepared to have a Florida-California showdown. And Let the people choose what’s the better vision for the United States of America, because I’m very confident that the freedom in Florida is what more people would choose rather than the public defecation on the streets of San Francisco.” DeSantis said.
If he were to succeed Biden as the nominee, he claimed that the American people would easily pick him over Newsom.
The governor of Florida recently paid a visit to San Francisco, where he bemoaned the city’s growing homelessness and drug concerns.
According to reports, the huge number of homeless people have caused a number of problems for locals, including open defecation, harassment, drug usage in public places, frequent automobile break-ins, and theft.
DeSantis recently urged Newsom to quit “pussyfooting” and challenge Biden in the 2024 presidential primary.
“He has a real serious fixation on the state of Florida. I mean, I think it’s just bizarre that he does that. But what I would tell him is you know what, stop pussyfooting around. Are you going to throw your hat in the ring and challenge Joe? Are you going to get in and do it or are you just going to sit on the sidelines and chirp?” DeSantis declared at a June 15th event.
