FLORIDA — Casey DeSantis wrapped up the “Stand with DeSantis” tour at an event in Volusia County on Monday. Florida’s first lady also made stops in Lee, Sumter, Marion, Citrus and Gadsden counties over the past several days.
Guests on the tour included Attorney General Ashley Moody, U.S. Representatives Byron Donalds and Kat Cammack, State Representative Blaise Ingoglia and Corey Simon, the Republican candidate for Florida Senate in District 3.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL
Casey DeSantis’ contributions to her husband’s campaign for re-election are all the more impressive considering her recent battle with cancer. She returned to the campaign trail in May, after doctors declared her cancer-free.
The former news anchor starred in a powerful campaign ad that went viral last month, giving viewers a look behind the scenes in the relationship between Ron and Casey DeSantis.
“He was there to pick me off the ground when I literally could not stand,” Casey DeSantis said of her husband in the ad.
“MAMAS FOR DESANTIS”
At a campaign event in Pasco County on Wednesday, Casey DeSantis announced that 1.1 million Mamas for DeSantis had been mobilized to help re-elect Governor Ron DeSantis. In June, the first lady announced the Mamas for DeSantis program and set the goal of signing up one million mamas across the state of Florida.
In just four months, Mamas for DeSantis made tangible outreach to Republican, Democrat and Independent mamas forming the largest parent-led movement in Florida history.
