Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) is still struggling in the polls, but he’s pulling through in the hopes of amassing support. Appearing in Russel Brands’ “Stay Free” podcast, Governor DeSantis answered some questions regarding the 2024 presidential election. Governor DeSantis slammed big government, affirming that his administration would take away power from Washington.

During the interview, Governor DeSantis reflected on the COVID-19 pandemic, commenting that the government was bloated in term of its power. “When the federal government tried to impose the Covid-19 vax mandates… the federal government said, ‘we’re telling you you have to.’ And we said, ‘go pound sand,’” DeSantis commented.

In reference to this, DeSantis now says that a DeSantis administration would pursue taking away power from the federal government.

“Part of the project, I think is, is to take power out of Washington and send it back to the states, to localities and individuals,” DeSantis explained, adding that “that means we need a radical reduction of the federal bureaucracy, we are going to tell our cabinet secretaries that they have to reduce the number of employees that they have inside DC by 50%, and that is going to probably be the biggest reduction in power in Washington in modern American history.”

DeSantis furth warned that “we cannot go down the road of letting more and more power consolidate in Washington D.C.”

Citing that “the founders never wanted to have consolidated power like that, because they understood that is a threat to freedom,” the presidential hopeful mentioned that “you also have another problem that the ruling class in D.C., they get almost every major issue wrong.”

In a recent Fox Business Poll covering Iowa and South Carolina voters, DeSantis is lagging behind President Donald Trump (R) with 16% and 13% support respectively. However, DeSantis supporters argue that polls are not indicative of the strength a campaign has.
