“We just finished this election, okay?” DeSantis said. “People just need to chill out a little bit on some of this stuff. I mean, seriously, we just ran an election. We have this Georgia runoff coming, which is very important for Republicans to win that Georgia runoff.”
“I mean, I know around the country, Florida was kind of the biggest bright spot, it was not so bright in many other parts of the country,” he continued. “It was a substandard performance given the dynamics that are at play.”
DeSantis said that he was given the opportunity to continue as the state’s governor is because he focused on leading and delivering results for the residents of Florida.
