DeSantis Campaign Press Release - Day Three of DeSantis' Latest Swing in Iowa

December 09, 2023

DES MOINES, Iowa – Ron DeSantis continued on his multi-day swing through Iowa with a full day of events across the Hawkeye State.

He started off the morning by speaking at Congressman Randy Feenstra's "Faith and Family with the Feenstras" event.

Randy Feenstra tweeted,

"Thank you Governor Ron DeSantis and First Lady Casey DeSantis for coming to Faith and Family with the Feenstras. Delivering results for Iowans and the American people must be our top priority. Now, we must defeat Joe Biden to uplift our families and defend our faith."

At the event, DeSantis talked about the left's attacks on religious liberty and the need to defend it:

"They want that to be the orthodoxy so that if you as a Christian or another faith, if your faith conflicts with their agenda, they expect you to bend the knee. That is not religious liberty as our Founding Fathers understood it."

At a gaggle following the event, DeSantis was asked by a reporter about Nikki Haley being the candidate of Wall Street CEOs and liberal donors. DeSantis responded,

"Getting endorsed by CEOs, who are liberal Democrats, of Wall Street banks, those are not good endorsements for a Republican Primary. When Republican primary voters see that they're like 'wait a minute, she's not going to be fighting for us. She's going to be caving to them."

After Faith and Family with the Feenstras, DeSantis joined Fox News Live, where he highlighted why he is the strongest candidate to lead the nation to a revival. He said, "I'm the only one running who has a record of delivering on 100% of his promises." Watch the full interview here.

Then, DeSantis headed to the Mt. Pleasant VFW to watch the Army-Navy game with Iowa veterans. He handed out beers to a room packed full of supporters who were excited to see him.

Finally, DeSantis stopped by KILJ's radio station for an in-person interview with radio host Paul Dennison and his granddaughter. The interview will air next Friday.
