Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is now advocating for the state of Florida to introduce term limits for politicians representing the state in the U.S. Congress.

DeSantis mentioned that it was just a matter of time before other states begin to emulate Florida’s actions in certifying proposed amendments that address the issue under Article V of the Constitution.

“At the invitation of the U.S. Term Limits organization, I traveled today to encourage other state legislators to follow Florida’s lead and pass a resolution to call for a constitutional amendment for congressional term limits. We will never turn our country around if we don’t change the incentives in DC.” DeSantis wrote on X.


“I was just in Indiana today meeting with some of the senators there. Their House has done it. I think their Senate’s gonna do it, too. North Carolina, I believe one of the Houses has done it. So I was able to meet with some of the senators here because I think this is something that the people in the states have the ability to propose changes to discipline Washington. The Founding Fathers structured the Constitution like that for a reason. I think it’s something that would get huge support.” DeSantis noted during a recent discussion with reporters.

“And the one thing I’ve noticed is it doesn’t matter if you’re Republican, Democrat, Independent, male, female, white, black, rich, poor — people support term limits for members of Congress. We’ve seen what’s happened up there. It’s been really poor performance for decades now.” he added.

“The incentives are not right. We need to change the incentives. Term limits is one way to do it. And so my hope is that states, particularly states that want to see big changes in Washington, will use the power that they have to advance these really important proposals, like term limits. But we have the ability in the states working together, to propose some really important changes, that are gonna be beneficial to this country.” DeSantis concluded.
