California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom on Independence Day aired a TV commercial critiquing Gov. DeSantis for his decision to fine the Special Olympics for enforcing unconstitutional mask and vaccine mandate laws.
In this ad, Newsom appears to be attacking the leadership of Governor Ron DeSantis and is seemingly inviting Floridians to move to his state, which holds multiple records thanks to Newsom’s progressive leadership.
We’re about to celebrate Independence Day — but Freedom is under attack by Republican leaders in states like Florida.
Making it harder to vote.
Criminalizing women and doctors.
It’s time to stand up. Don’t let them take your freedom. pic.twitter.com/cFI5UzgZzX

The state of California has the highest income tax nationwide, and yet leads every other state in its ever-growing homeless population. Murders and violent crimes are up by 35% since last year, setting a 15-year record, trains are being robbed in broad daylight, and Californians, are fleeing the state at the highest rate under Newsom than any other Governor in history. Many of these California refugees are moving to Republican led states like Florida, and Texas. But none of these issues seem to prevent Newsom from attacking one of the most successful states in the country.
The sunshine state’s First Lady, Casey DeSantis took to Twitter to fire back at Newsom for his ignorant ad. She shared a video of a Special Olympian mother whose daughter was not allowed to participate in the competition given her vaccination status.
“For those who need a reminder … this is why we fight,” F.L DeSantis tweeted. “Isabella competed in the Special Olympics because @RonDeSantisFL stood up and fought for her and all the other Special Olympians who would have been sidelined. We will never stop fighting for people like Isabella.” she added.

Gov. DeSantis and his team had already addressed this ad earlier this month, his re-election campaign spokesman told The Daily Wire: “The people of Florida pay no mind to the pathetic smear campaigns from the Democrats and their allies in the corporate media, we’re too busy enjoying the freedom Gov. Ron DeSantis has created in the Sunshine State.”
Governor DeSantis has remarked that there are reasons why people are fleeing California and coming over to Florida. “Let us be clear, California is driving people away with their terrible governance,” he said at a public appearance.
