Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) traveled to Tampa on Sunday to deliver a speech at Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit where he said sales for his “Don’t Fauci My Florida” merchandise are “through the roof.”
“Let me just give you a personal welcome to the free state of Florida,” DeSantis told the crowd of young conservatives. “Here in Florida, we believe in lifting people up, not locking people down. We believe in the rights of kids to get an in-person education, and the right of people to earn a living — the right of people to maintain their businesses. Florida chooses freedom over Fauci-ism.”
Last week, DeSantis began selling branded merchandise featuring slogans like “Don’t Fauci My Florida” in an effort to push back against National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases head Dr. Anthony Fauci, a move for which media elites criticized him.
