Florida’s First Lady is back on the campaign trail with husband Governor Ron DeSantis —and she couldn’t be happier. During a campaign event held at The Villages in Sumter County, Casey DeSantis took a moment to acknowledge her journey, saying “damn it feels good to be here.”
“Governor, I don’t know if this sounds very first lady-like, but damn it feels good to be here,” she started. “Let me say this, no matter what you’re going through in life, no matter how hard things seem like they are, no matter how hard it feels like you have to pick yourself off the ground, or you feel like your back is against the wall, fight! Fight like hell!”
“Never ever give up, never ever back down,” she continued. “I am the testament that God is great, that God is good, and hope is alive.”
DeSantis also released a statement to Fox News.
“After six rounds of chemotherapy, a surgery, six weeks of radiation, and most importantly, through God’s grace, I am elated while humbled to be back on the campaign trail fighting for America’s Governor,” she said. “I am forever grateful for the prayers from good folks across the country who thought and prayed for me and my family’s well-being, thank you. I pray my story has inspired people to stay strong and never give up hope.”
“I look forward to telling Florida’s story of success and why thousands of new residents are flocking to the Sunshine State in the name of Freedom,” she added.
