CLERMONT, FLORIDA — Republican Clermont City Councilman Ebo Entsuah announced today that he has filed to run for the Florida State Senate in District 13.
“Thanks to the hard work of conservative fighters like Governor Ron DeSantis, Florida is leading the nation toward a brighter future,” Entsuah told The Florida Standard.
Entsuah says he is a constitutional conservative and a “Ron DeSantis Republican” who will fight to keep Florida free, hold the government accountable, and protect the God-given rights of Floridians.
INSPIRED BY GOVERNOR DESANTIS
Ebo grew up in Clermont, Florida and graduated from East Ridge High School where he was a football player. After enrolling at Florida State University, Entsuah was offered a “walk-on” slot for 2012, 2013, and 2014 seasons. It was at FSU that Entsuah says he learned the true meaning of teamwork – winning a National Championship in 2014.
It was in Tallahassee that Entsuah first became interested in public policy, and upon graduation moved to Washington, DC to work for then-freshman U.S. Congressman Ron DeSantis. Entsuah says he was one of the first Floridians to see what almost everyone now knows – when other politicians cowered and caved, Ron DeSantis fought back.
VOWS TO DEFEND FREEDOM
Entsuah says his early work for Governor DeSantis taught him that smart, strong and principled leaders can stand up to the liberal establishment and win. DeSantis appointed Entsuah to the board of Volunteer Florida in 2021, where he met fellow FSU football player Corey Simon (R-Tallahassee). Simon – now a state senator – serves as a mentor to Entsuah. In 2020, Entsuah won a seat on the Clermont City Council, where he currently serves.
“As a city councilman, I fought every single proposal to raise taxes. I’ll defend our constitutional freedoms, preserve parents’ rights, create better jobs for Floridians, and fight the Woke left agenda tooth and nail in the Florida Senate,” Entsuah said.
Entsuah also works closely with Project Lead the Way, a national nonprofit that develops STEM and Career Technical Education curricula for K-12 students.
