Florida Governor Ron DeSantis released a campaign ad yesterday portraying himself as a fighter jet pilot from the likes of the hit movie “Top Gun.” In the ad, the governor hones in on his disapproval of the mainstream media outlets that continue to mislead the American public.

DeSantis began the ad with a pilot-like announcement, saying, “Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, this is your Governor speaking,”

He then describes the intended target for the ad, remarking, “Today’s training evolution: dogfighting. Taking on the corporate media.”

He then outlines, in theatrical fashion, his response plan to attacks perpetrated by the media. “The rules of engagement are as follows: Number one, don’t fire unless fired upon, but when they fire, you fire back with overwhelming force,”

Ironically, DeSantis didn’t make this ad about California Governor Gavin Newsom, who recently featured one targeting the Florida Governor. However, Gov. DeSantis chose to focus on the issues impacting America, like distribution of politically-motivated misinformation via the mainstream media, instead of responding to petty crossfire from a governor whose own people tried to recall him.
The Governor of Florida has come under heavy fire lately from individuals within the top ranks of the Democratic Party as well as the very corporate media his ad targeted. Apart from former President Donald Trump, Gov. Desantis appears to be the most significant threat to the elitist establishment.

Not only has the governor been bashed by the top rungs of corrupt culprits in this country, but Charlie Christ, a Democrat (and former Republican) running against DeSantis, said at a teachers union event in Tampa, FL, that Governor DeSantis is “a wannabe dictator.”

However, much like Trump, Florida’s “Maverick” Governor seems completely unperturbed by the repeated Leftist attacks. In fact, his national profile has increased so much so that he is the closest number two for the presumptive Republican Party presidential nominee in 2024, ranking below Former President Trump. The mounting support comes as many have flocked to Florida from blue states for the past few years, seeking less taxation, less government involvement, and overall better quality of life.

When all is said and done, one thing is clear, the successor of leading the Republican Party after Trump is clearly Gov. Desantis, which comforts many republicans knowing that there is a bold leader ready to carry the torch once the current leader steps down.
