Rep. Ron DeSantis officially enters race for Florida governor

By Brooke Singman | Fox News

Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis officially entered the race for Florida governor on Friday, just days after President Trump endorsed his potential candidacy.

DeSantis, R-Fla., said he would be filing paperwork to begin his campaign, joining a crowded field of gubernatorial hopefuls working to succeed current Republican Gov. Rick Scott.

“As somebody who is a military officer, Iraq veteran, a proven conservative, and then with the support of the president, I’m in a position to exercise the leadership that can build on the great work that Governor Rick Scott has done,” DeSantis said on “Fox & Friends” Friday. He said he would build on Scott’s work to “advance economic opportunity, reform education and drain the swamp in Tallahassee.”

Wow, a Floridian who wants to drain swamps.  He should know how to do it.

I first learned of DeSantis when he was running for Rubio's spot before Rubio changed his mind and decided he wanted his seat back.  I think DeSanits would make an excellent governor.  He's going to have a tough battle against Putnam the establishment favorite!
