Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) touted his state’s booming economy amid the ongoing pandemic. On Monday, the Florida Republican spoke out a ribbon-cutting ceremony and attributed his state’s success to the thousands of businesses and lives that have been protected under his administration’s leadership.

“If you look around the country, you have businesses closing in a lot of these states,” DeSantis said. “Florida, we have businesses opening. New businesses opening.”

Furthermore, the Sunshine State was one of the first to fully re-open by rejecting blue state lockdowns.

“We’re one of the few states where people are actually opening new restaurants, hotels,” DeSantis noted. “And then here in Buc-ees, even though we had the pandemic hit, you know, they were full speed ahead. And I think the results are going to speak for themselves.”

DeSantis went on to highlight the state’s unemployment statistics at less than five percent, which ranks below the national average.
