DeSantis in 2013

Ron DeSantis is the current conservative Governor of Florida, serving since January 2018. He previously served as a member of the United States House of Representatives from January 2013 to September 2018. He is a member of the Republican Party.

Early life

Ron DeSantis was born in Jacksonville, Florida.

Florida Governor

DeSantis moved quickly to implement conservative policies as Florida's governor.[1] By the end of DeSantis's first month in office, he had already appointed three justices to the Florida Supreme Court, dramatically shifting it from a liberal to a conservative court.[2] On January 31, 2019, DeSantis signed an executive order to end Common Core.[3] DeSantis removed many of former Governor Rick Scott's political appointees, which the latter made without DeSantis's permission shortly before DeSantis took office.[4] In his first two months in office, DeSantis made many other conservative reforms, including deregulation, promoting lower taxes, posthumously pardoning wrongly convicted black people, and pushed back against the government-subsidized sugar industry.[5] Early in his tenure, DeSantis oversaw a state "deregathon" which significantly reduced the state regulatory burden.[5][6]

In 2019, DeSantis encouraged Florida sheriffs to increase their cooperation with ICE, though he did nothing to push through a bill to establish E-Verify in Florida despite campaigning on it.[7] On June 14, 2019, DeSantis signed a bill banning "sanctuary" cities in Florida.[8]

On May 8, 2019, DeSantis signed a bill into law allowing local school districts to arm their teachers.[9]

DeSantis strongly supported Israel and opposed the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.[10]
