The governor criticized states governed by left-leaning ideologies, arguing they epitomize the nation’s decline.

“This country is in a state of decline: economic decline, military decline, cultural decline,” Mr. DeSantis said. “And if we look at states that are governed by leftist politicians wielding leftist ideology, those states are symptomatic of the larger decline in our country. And I can cite you statistics, but all you have to do is look at how people are voting with their feet.”

He insisted, “Those states that impose anti-freedom policies are hemorrhaging businesses, residents, and wealth,” with crime and educational systems suffering.
