(TheConservativeNews.org) – Governor Gavin Newsom (D-Calif.) foolishly decided that it would be a great way to fight the popularity of Governor Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) by running desperate ads in his state in what looks like a bid for the presidency in 2024.
The response from DeSantis’ campaign was epic after the leftist and increasingly unpopular Newsom bought ad space in Florida. Newsom’s re-election campaign spent roughly $105,000 on cable television ads that will air on Fox News in the state beginning on July 4, according to SFGate and Medium Buying’s Twitter account.
After the spokesperson for DeSantis’ campaign, Dave Abrams, told The Daily Wire, “Gavin Newsom might as well light a pile of cash on fire. Pass the popcorn for his desperate attempt to win back the California refugees who fled the hellhole he created in his state to come to Florida.”
“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 Governor Ron DeSantis has created in the Sunshine State,” he proclaimed.
In a further jab at Newsom, DeSantis’ campaign website is hilariously selling mugs that say, “I [heart] CA but I wish my governor was Ron DeSantis.”
Both DeSantis and Newsom are up for reelection in November. DeSantis, however, is being floated as a 2024 presidential contender in the Republican Party. His massive popularity rivals that of former President Donald Trump and he has the Democrats running scared. Enter Gavin Newsom.
It is not clear what the emphasis of Newsom’s ads will be but it is likely they will deal with education, the environment, race, and abortion.
Newsom has deflected in the past when asked if he intends to run for the presidency. He’s gone so far as to claim he has “subzero interest” in it. But it would be shocking if he didn’t have aspirations for the top job and with the bench for the Democrats being so thin these days, he probably sees an opportunity.
And now Newsom has announced that California residence will receive $1050 for inflation relief.
