Presidential hopeful Ron DeSantis is coming to Texas next week to raise funds.
Florida Governor and Presidential candidate Ron DeSantis is returning to Texas to raise funds.
DeSantis will be hosting a range of prominent Republicans and Texan billionaires as he hopes to defeat former President Donald Trump to win the GOP nomination.
He will be in Texas from June 7-9 to host fundraising events in Midland, Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston, The Woodlands, and Austin.
DeSantis has strengthened his ties with Texas of late.
Last week he sent forces to assist in Operation Lone Star at the southern border.
"Operation Lone Star is underway with Florida deploying law enforcement officers and special agents to protect the Southern Border in Texas. When the federal government refuses to step up — Florida stands ready to serve." Ron DeSantis
During his last visit to Texas in April, De Santis said Texas and Florida were holding form together, preventing the United States from becoming "one big woke, neo-Marxist dumpster fire."
"They know you don’t mess with Texas — and you don’t tread on Florida. I really believe if it hasn’t been for Texas and Florida playing the role we have in this country in recent history, our entire country would be one big woke, neo-Marxist Dumpster fire.” Ron DeSantis
He then proclaimed.
"The state of Florida — and the state of Texas — is where woke goes to die.”
One person who doesn't think highly of DeSantis is Gilberto Hinojosa, chair of the Texas Democratic Party.
“Ron DeSantis is an empty suit who pushes as far as he possibly can on nonsensical culture war issues because he thinks it’ll win him support in a Republican presidential primary. It says a lot about our own inept governor that he’s not even shrewd enough to win these ridiculous culture war battles against the Pee-wee Herman of the Republican Party and that he’d lose in a landslide in a primary to clowns like Ron DeSantis or Donald Trump.” Gilberto Hinojosa, chair of the Texas Democratic Party
Tickets for the DeSantis fundraisers start at $3,300 per person and rise to $13,200 per couple, with donations going toward the primary and general elections.
Do you agree with the comments made by Ron DeSantis? Are you glad to see Texas and Florida combine to fight against the Biden administration? Would you vote for DeSantis for President?
