DeSantis-endorsed school board candidates dominate their races as election results pour in
HIALEAH, Fla. — Governor Ron DeSantis tonight addressed an energetic crowd of supporters in Hialeah to celebrate successful Republican candidates who are eager to fight for Florida’s Freedom Agenda and continue delivering sweeping policy victories for Floridians. Governor Ron DeSantis appeared alongside First Lady Casey DeSantis, Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, and state and local candidates.
For the first time in state history, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made significant endorsements and investments in school board candidates – ranging from two major wins in Miami-Dade – including the defeat of a 24-year incumbent, a new conservative majority in Sarasota, across the board wins in Duval and ousting anti-parent incumbents in counties across the state. The DeSantis Education Agenda represents the most significant effort by a governor to endorse, train and invest in school board candidates across the nation.
Governor DeSantis made the following statement:
“Freedom is on the line this November — and our bold agenda for parental rights in education, safe communities, a vibrant economy, and a protected environment is vital to keeping the state of Florida free.
Our state is worth fighting for, and I am calling on all Floridians to put on the full armor of God as we will fight tooth and nail to protect Florida from the destructive agenda of Joe Biden and his number one ally in Florida, Charlie Crist.”
Tonight’s event was the first stop of the Keep Florida Free Tour, continuing with additional events tomorrow in Seminole, Duval, and Hillsborough counties. The tour will rally and unite Republicans for victory in November up-and-down the ballot to keep Florida free.
- Governor DeSantis announced last week the DeSantis Playbook, a first-of-its-kind resource for Floridians that details the Governor’s Freedom Agenda that has made Florida a national leader for parental rights, law and order, environmental protection, and fiscally-sound economic policies.
- Governor Ron DeSantis has endorsed 30 pro-parent, student-first school board candidates who are running on the DeSantis Education Agenda. The Governor appeared at rallies across the state on Sunday, August 21, to highlight the importance of electing conservatives to local school boards. Learn more at DeSantisEducationAgenda.com.
