TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA — In a new video ad for the DeSantis campaign, we get a look behind the scenes in the relationship between Ron and Casey DeSantis.
“I get asked all the time, who is Ron DeSantis?” Florida’s First Lady Casey DeSantis says in a heartfelt new video ad for the DeSantis campaign.
“Well, he’s the kid who grew up right here in Florida, working his tail off, paying his own way through school. Then volunteering to serve in the Navy and deploying to Iraq,” Casey DeSantis says.
We also get to see some pictures from Ron DeSantis’ childhood, school years and service in the Navy. And the joyful pictures from their wedding, of course.
But Casey DeSantis is almost moved to tears when she talks about how her husband was there for her and the family when she was diagnosed with cancer.
“He was there to pick me off the ground when I literally could not stand.”
Ron DeSantis is currently leading Charlie Crist by 11 points in the gubernatorial race, according to a poll by Mason-Dixon Polling & Strategy.
