Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) responded Monday to California Governor Gavin Newsom’s (D) debate challenge last week, saying that he’s not interested because he doesn’t know if California would even be able to keep the lights on for a debate.
“I don’t know if they can reliably keep the power on so you go all the way up there and have a debate and then what ends up happening if they can’t keep the lights on?” DeSantis said during an interview with host Sean Hannity. “So, you know, we’re happy with what we’re doing. You know what I do though, Sean, my actions speak louder than my words. There’s certain people that will preen and do that, I understand, we get things done in Florida.”
