Gov. DeSantis on vaccine mandates: Florida wants to ‘protect all the jobs’

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis says his state is trying to recruit law enforcement who are ‘not being treated well’ from other states amid vaccine mandates.

EXCLUSIVE: Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday announced his plans to run for re-election in 2022, saying he has “delivered on all fronts” in his first term leading the Sunshine State, and telling Fox News that he’s “only just begun to fight.” 

DeSantis formally filed paperwork to make his re-election campaign official. DeSantis was elected in 2018, and his current term is expected to expire in January 2023. 

When I became governor, I pledged to foster economic opportunity, support K-12 education, usher in a new era for Florida’s Everglades and water resources, ensure the integrity of our elections and stand for public safety and the rule of law,” DeSantis told Fox News.

DeSantis said he has “delivered on all fronts: Florida’s economy is strong, we’ve boosted teacher pay, made historic investments in Everglades restoration and water quality, signed strong election integrity legislation, provided unparalleled support for law enforcement and appointed strong constitutionalists to our state courts.” 

“I also protected individual Floridians and small businesses by keeping Florida open and stood up for students and parents by ensuring schools provided in-person instruction and by championing the rights of parents,” DeSantis continued. “We’ve also taken on Big Tech censorship, banned sanctuary cities, ensured that municipalities cannot defund law enforcement and stood up to the Biden regime.” 

He added: “And I’ve only just begun to fight.”
