DeSantis Points To Florida and Israel Successes At Republican Jewish Coalition

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently highlighted Florida and Israel in a speech delivered at the Republican Jewish Coalition leadership meeting.

"Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis delivered the keynote address at the annual gala dinner at the Republican Jewish Coalition leadership meeting, receiving a standing ovation from activists and donors," reported Breitbart.

"DeSantis, who was reelected last week, recounted recent Republican successes in the midterm elections, as well as his policy successes, focusing on Florida’s actions against antisemitism and in favor of U.S.-Israel relations," reported Breitbart.

DeSantis Draws Standing Ovation

"The governor also drew applause for a comment on Judea and Samaria — also called the 'West Bank': 'It is not occupied territory; it is disputed territory.' The distinction has implications for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict," according to Breitbart News.

"DeSantis talked about his recent success in managing the impact of Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Nicole, joking that Florida had rebuilt bridges and restored power while other states were still counting their election results," reported Breitbart.

He also talked about his recent fight with Disney over transgender ideology in Florida elementary schools, which the company supported.

"We’re not kowtowing to 'woke' corporations," DeSantis said. A standing ovation followed. "We will never, ever surrender to the 'woke' mob. The state of Florida is where 'woke' goes to die."

"He talked about the need to build a broad coalition. 'There is no substitute for victory,' he said. 'Freedom will reign supreme with Florida leading the way.' He did not mention any potential future presidential ambitions, nor did he address former President Donald Trump, but he concluded: 'I have only begun to fight,'" reported Breitbart News.
