Florida GOP launches pro-Ron DeSantis ads

The Republican Party of Florida is launching English and Spanish commercials essentially introducing Republican gubernatorial nominee, telling of his participation in the 1991 Little League World Series team from Dunedin to his basic platform on Florida issues.

The 30-second spots, “Go To Bat” and “Ir Al Bate”, feature U.S. Rep. Ron DeSantis discussing what he learned as a 12-year-old Little League baseball player and then moves to his promises to “grow high-paying jobs, restore Florida’s water quality, and improve education for every child.”

“From Dunedin to Tallahassee, I’ll always go to bat for Florida,” he concludes.

The ads provide no more detail. The Republican Party of Florida did not provide details on the media buy.

DeSantis is facing Democratic nominee Andrew Gillum in the Nov. 6 election.
