Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made his first appearance here in the Granite State where he delivered the keynote address at the NHGOP’s annual Amos Tuck fundraiser dinner. The event set an all-time fundraising record for the Party. DeSantis spoke to the enthusiastic crowd and touched on many issues that resonated with the gathered Party faithful as he touted his many successes during his four and a half years serving as the Sunshine State’s governor.
Near the beginning of his speech, he was disrupted by two people that rushed the stage attempting to unfurl some sort of banner. They were quickly removed by security and the Governor took it in stride, barely skipping a beat in his remarks.
Of course, the big question is whether or not he’s going to jump into the fray and run for the Republican nomination. Since New Hampshire features the Nation’s FIRST presidential primary, it’s more likely than not.
He certainly sounded like a candidate tonight. You can watch the entire speech here, including the brief disruption, and judge for yourself:
