DeSantis Campaign Press Release - DeSantis in the Granite State

November 01, 2023

"Defund the UN...I have a belief that we, the American people, are sovereign."

Tallahassee, FL - Ron DeSantis was back in New Hampshire today as a special guest with Never Back Down, where he participated in WMUR's Candidate Café and spoke at a town hall with Florida Surgeon General Dr. Jospeh Ladapo.

At the Candidate Café, DeSantis joined Adam Sexton and New Hampshire voters for lunch and answered their questions about his agenda for the nation, as well as his baseball background and what life is like on the campaign trail.

"SEXTON: DeSantis says on the campaign trail he ends up with a lot of extra food, including baked goods. As the father of three kids under 10, he likes to save some of those goodies for them.

RON DESANTIS: But when I bring it back at 8:30 at night on a school night, and then they proceed to get hopped up on sugar, my wife is not always that happy with me for doing that. But you know, you got to, you only live once, and you deal with some of the consequences down the road."

Then, DeSantis attended a medical freedom town hall alongside Florida Surgeon General Dr. Ladapo at The Hill Bar & Grille in Manchester. At the town hall, DeSantis was asked his stance on the United Nations:

"Defund the UN. I mean, are you kidding me? What a farce! I have a belief that we, the American people, are sovereign. We don't give up sovereignty to international organizations, and that's a long-held view... The UN is basically a hotbed for antisemitism, anti-Israel. It's some of the worst elements in the world that get together. They couldn't even bring themselves to condemn Hamas massacring all those Israeli civilians."

At the town hall, Florida Surgeon General Dr. Ladapo talked about why he supports DeSantis for president.

"Can you imagine the courage it took to have all these MDs, and news experts saying that you can't open schools, people have to stay home...to stare that down, to read the data, to reach a conclusion, to know that conclusion is right, and all of these Harvard MDs and PhDs are wrong—that takes courage. And he embodies that. That is who he is."

DeSantis' trip to New Hampshire comes on the same day that he released his first TV ad. Watch the ad here.
