Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is wrapping up his two-month-long legislative session filled with conservative agenda items, giving him a strong leg to stand on ahead of an expected presidential announcement, several Florida Republican operatives told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Florida’s legislative session ends on Friday, and DeSantis has been able to get through a large swath of GOP-backed legislation regarding abortion, gun rights, school choice, the death penalty, among others. DeSantis will end the “historic” session with a strong conservative record that will serve him well as he is highly anticipated to head into the Republican primaries, the operatives told the DCNF.
“He is going to have the most conservative policy arrows in his quiver than anybody else on the stage,” a source familiar with the governor’s plans told the DCNF. “If the governor decides to launch a presidential campaign he’s going to have an even greater conservative arsenal of policies to challenge the other Republican candidates with because of this legislative session – his agenda really dominated the session.”
