Ron DeSantis’ Statement on Today’s Record Job Numbers

Ron DeSantis’ Statement on Today’s Record Job Numbers

Orlando, Fla. – The U.S. Department of Labor today released its hiring and unemployment figures for October, exceeding analysts’ expectations and continuing to show the record pace that our economy is on. Thanks to Republican tax-cuts, which Ron DeSantis voted for and President Donald Trump signed, combined with Republican pro-growth policies on the state level, Florida’s economy is in a perfect position to continue this upward momentum and create opportunity for all Floridians.

Republican Gubernatorial Candidate Ron DeSantis released the following statement:

“Today’s job numbers show our country’s economy is booming like never before. Last month, businesses created 250,000 private sector jobs, massively exceeding expectations. Americans’ wages grew at the fastest rate in a decade. Our unemployment rate is at a 50-year low, and the Hispanic unemployment hit another all-time low. My opponent, Andrew Gillum, wants to reverse our momentum with massive tax increases, which would be devastating for our state. As Governor, I will make sure we build on our economic momentum by keeping taxes low, boosting wages and creating more jobs for Floridians.”

Today’s Jobs Report shows:

  • The U.S. added 250,000 jobs in October, exceeding analysts’ expectations
  • Maintained a national 50-year low unemployment rate of 3.7 percent
  • Achieved an 18-year high for consumer confidence
  • Reached a record 100-month streak of straight hiring

For the last quarter (July-September), the U.S.:

  • Achieved highest growth in consumer spending for the last four years
  • Expanded the economy by an annual rate of 3.5 percent
  • Saw a 3.1 percent increase in wages and salaries from the previous year, the best growth in a decade
  • All of this growth has occurred while maintaining steady and sustainable inflation

Particularly good news for minority groups:

  • Hispanic unemployment dropping to a record low
  • Black Americans still experiencing historic lows in unemployment
  • Maintaining decades-low rate in unemployment for women

ICYMI: President Trump Recognizes Ron DeSantis for His Work to Clean Up Florida’s Water

ICYMI: President Trump Recognizes Ron DeSantis for His Work to Clean Up Florida’s Water

Orlando, Fla. – In case you missed it, during his rally in Southwest Florida last night, President Donald Trump recognized Republican Candidate for Governor Ron DeSantis for his role in passing America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018, which included the authorization of the reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee.

“Rick and Ron also worked closely with us to pass legislation to build a reservoir south of Lake Okeechobee – that was an expensive one – to clean Florida’s water. That’s a big one,” said President Trump of DeSantis & Governor Rick Scott.

Clean water has been a top priority for DeSantis who has been endorsed by the Everglades Trust for his strong position on the issue.

“As Governor, I will work with the President and his administration to make sure we get the resources we need to clean our water and our rivers and protect our way of life here in the State of Florida,” said DeSantis.

Casey DeSantis Visits Tampa School, Vows to Protect Choice Scholarships

Casey DeSantis Visits Tampa School, Vows to Protect Choice Scholarships

Orlando, Fla. – Today, Casey DeSantis, wife of Republican Gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis, visited the St. Peter Claver Catholic School in Tampa. Mrs. DeSantis toured the school, met with students and teachers, and spoke about the importance of choice scholarships.

“St. Peter Claver Catholic School is a testament to how innovative education policies can truly change the lives of children and their families,” said Casey DeSantis.  “St. Peter Claver has more than 150 students, many of them African-American and all of them from families with limited means, that are now excelling in a great learning environment thanks to the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship program.  This program empowers low-income parents to choose the best learning environment for their children—just like parents of greater means do.”

“My husband, Ron DeSantis, will protect these students’ scholarships and defend these parents’ right to send their child to a school where they can excel,” continued Casey DeSantis.  “Andrew Gillum has said that he will bring this program and others like it ‘to a conclusion.’ That is shameful and wrong.  He should look these students and parents in the eye and tell them why he thinks they don’t deserve the opportunity to choose a learning environment that works for them.”

“Public education doesn’t exist to serve the interests of bureaucrats and unions – it exists to equip every child with the knowledge and skills they need to pursue their dreams and maximize their own potential. Empowering families will always be the focus of Ron DeSantis as Governor,” concluded Casey DeSantis.

Florida Police Chiefs Association Endorses Ron DeSantis for Governor

Orlando, Fla. – The Ron DeSantis for Governor Campaign today announced the Florida Police Chiefs Association has endorsed DeSantis.  The endorsement by the Florida Police Chiefs Association builds on the significant support DeSantis has garnered from the law enforcement community, including endorsements from the Police Benevolent Association, the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association and numerous sheriffs from across the State of Florida.

“Florida Police Chiefs want a Governor who supports law enforcement, the principles of the association and will protect our communities,” said Amy Mercer, executive director of the Florida Police Chiefs Association. “The FPCA proudly supports Congressman Ron DeSantis for Governor. As a former prosecutor, he understands the sacrifice our law enforcement officers make when they put on their uniforms every day.”

“I’m proud to receive the endorsement of the Florida Police Chiefs Association,” said DeSantis. “Throughout my career, whether in the military, as a prosecutor or in Congress, I have always supported the brave men and women of our law enforcement community. Floridians deserve a Governor who will stand up for our heroes who work every day to protect us.”

“Unfortunately, my opponent, Andrew Gillum, has signed a pledge saying police and prisons have no place in our state, which is as dangerous as it is despicable,” said DeSantis.  “As Governor, I will always stand with our law enforcement and support them in their mission to keep Florida safe.”

The Jewish Press, America’s Largest Jewish Weekly Publication, Endorses Ron DeSantis for Governor

The Jewish Press, America’s Largest Jewish Weekly Publication, Endorses Ron DeSantis for Governor

Orlando, Fla. – The Jewish Press, America’s largest Jewish weekly publication, endorsed Ron DeSantis for Governor today, citing his support for the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and his strong support of Israel. The endorsement also chastised Ron DeSantis’ opponent, stating his support for the BDS movement and the Iran Nuclear Deal, both of which threaten the security and sovereignty of Israel and highlight his consistent disregard for the wellbeing of the Israeli people and Florida’s Jewish community.

In their endorsement, the Jewish Press wrote:

“We urge our Florida readers to come out on November 6 and vote for Republican and Trump supporter Ron DeSantis for governor. Throughout his career, DeSantis has been a vocal supporter of Israel. He has supported the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, has strongly opposed the BDS movement and, if elected, would seek to promote trade between Florida and Israel.

He also plans to partner with Israel to clean up the pollution that plagues Florida’s coastal waters, taking advantage of Israel’s highly regarded expertise in that field. We are confident that as governor, he would use his ‘bully pulpit’ in support of Israel. His opponent, Democrat Andrew Gillum, supports BDS and strongly opposed the relocation of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. He was also a supporter of the Iran nuclear deal.”

Ron DeSantis said:

“It is a great honor to receive such a strong endorsement from the Jewish Press, the largest independent weekly Jewish publication in the United States,” said DeSantis. “I am a strong supporter of Israel and was proud to play a role in moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem during my time in Congress. Florida is home to many Jewish-Americans and has a uniquely close relationship with Israel. As Governor, I will strengthen Florida’s partnership with Israel, and will be the most pro-Israel Governor in the country.”

Florida Sheriffs Demand Andrew Gillum Renounce the Hateful and Dangerous Ideology of Radical “Dream Defenders” Organization

Florida Sheriffs Demand Andrew Gillum Renounce the Hateful and Dangerous Ideology of Radical “Dream Defenders” Organization

Orlando, Fla. – More than half of the state’s elected Sheriffs signed a letter demanding Andrew Gillum withdraw his pledge to cut police funding and renounce the hateful and dangerous ideology of the radical Dream Defenders organization.

Andrew Gillum has walked in lock step with the Dream Defenders since the primary. The Dream Defenders have aided him with his campaign and engaged in get out the vote efforts throughout. He has publicly stated that he is proud of the group’s work and has refused to disavow this hate group.

Ron DeSantis has earned the endorsement of every major police union in the state because, as a former prosecutor, he is committed to supporting the brave men and women in law enforcement. This is in stark contrast to Andrew Gillum, who has openly aligned himself with a group that is vile in their rhetoric towards police.

In a rare move, the International Union of Police Associations broke with tradition to endorse Ron DeSantis because of Gillum’s extreme positions. In a public letter to Ron DeSantis, the group said that although they “very seldom make political endorsements in state elections,” they “felt that they could not remain neutral,” citing Gillum’s alignment with the Dream Defenders and their hateful, anti-law enforcement rhetoric. This is the third major police group to demand Gillum denounce his ties to the Dream Defenders.

Ron DeSantis has gained the endorsement of every major law enforcement association in the state, including:

  • The Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association. Their President, Jeff Bell, has repeatedly called out Andrew Gillum for signing the Dream Defenders pledge.
  • The Police Benevolent Association, who recorded robocalls opposing Andrew Gillum for his decision to cut police funding.
  • Over 50 Sheriffs, the majority of whom have called on Gillum to denounce the Dream Defenders pledge.
  • The Florida Association of State Troopers
  • The Florida Police Chiefs Association

This letter was released shortly before the Republican Governor’s Association released a new television ad highlighting the concerns of law enforcement officials over Gillum’s consistent support of the radical anti-police group.

“I strongly agree with Florida Sheriffs who are calling on my opponent to once and for all disavow the Dream Defenders pledge that he signed,” said Ron DeSantis, Republican nominee for Governor of Florida. “My opponent has consistently skirted the issue and refused to disavow the dangerous, anti-police rhetoric that this group advocates. He has shown the brave men and women of our law enforcement that he will not have their back.”

The letter reads:

We, the undersigned members of Florida’s law enforcement community, ask that you immediately and unequivocally withdraw your pledge to the organization, Dream Defenders. After learning of this organization’s disturbing and anti-law enforcement position and statements, we believe that any candidate wishing to lead our state should in no way be aligned with this radical group.

The pledge you signed not only calls for you to defund police and prisons, but the papers that accompany this pledge wrongly claim, “Police were never meant to protect and serve me and you…Police and prisons have no place in ‘justice’…Police and prisons aren’t just racist but they work to enforce the separations of rich and poor.”

We believe you will agree that anyone seeking to be Florida’s next Governor should support the men and women who put on a badge daily and risk their lives to protect their communities.

We ask that you respond to this request with urgency and agree with us that the men and women of law enforcement in our state deserve respect and support.

Thank You,

The full letter, along with the names of each signee, may be found here.
