DeSantis is competing against Democrat Andrew Gillum in the race for Governor. The RPOF’s new 30-second ad, titled “Way of Life,” is part of a $3 million ad buy supporting DeSantis’ campaign.
“Florida’s water crisis isn’t just an ecological disaster, it’s a threat to our way of life,” the ad’s narrator begins.
“That’s why Ron DeSantis stood up to special interest polluters and has a bold plan to clean up our waterways, restore the Everglades, fight the red tide and build a southern reservoir on Lake Okeechobee to stop toxic algae.”
The ad then switches over to DeSantis, who addresses voters directly. “As Governor, I’ll stand up to the special interests to clean up our waters and stop the spread of toxic algae.”
DeSantis’ full policy agenda on the environment is available on his website. DeSantis’ says he opposes offshore drilling and will work to install a ban on fracking, among other policy proposals.
The Republican’s promises were met with skepticism earlier this month from Democrats and some environmental groups.
