It’s not many times that we see candidates elected on campaign promises that then go to Washington, DC and keep them.

Modern politics seems to be more about who regresses less than who advances.

This is not the case of Ron DeSantis.

In 2012, we were one of the first conservative PACs to endorse Ron in his run for the United States Congress based on his sterling credentials. A Yale and Harvard Law graduate, Ron distinguished himself as a Navy JAG lawyer during his time in the military. As a candidate, he checked all the boxes, giving all the right answers to our difficult questions during our candidate interview.

However, you never really know how good a candidate is going to be until they are put to the test.

As a freshman Congressman, Ron scored 95% on the Club for Growth’s scorecard and 100% on the Heritage Action scorecard. Often times, he took hard votes, standing with his constituents and against GOP leadership.

This is the kind of leadership that we want to see in Washington, D.C. and during his short time in the House, Ron DeSantis has only confirmed our 2012 endorsement of him.

This is why we are happy to endorse him for his run for the United States Senate and look forward to helping him win in 2016!
