DeSantis Campaign Press Release - Saturday in New Hampshire with Congressman Thomas Massie

December 31, 2023

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Ron DeSantis had a busy Saturday in New Hampshire full of events and media as a special guest of Never Back Down.

He started out the morning with a sit-down interview for an episode of the New Hampshire Journal's Diner Table Economics, which will air next week.

Then, he spoke at a packed town hall in Manchester with Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie. As reported by the Manchester Ink, "after an introduction by State Representative Joe Sweeney (R-Salem), Massie praised DeSantis' intelligence and integrity when the two knew each other as fellow members of Congress."

DeSantis highlighted why he's the best candidate for the American people:

"The way I view the primary is, Donald Trump is running for his issues. Nikki Haley is running for her donor's issues. I'm running to address your issues."

Afterwards, he made a stop at Shooters Outpost in Hooksett.

Then, he and Massie spoke at another town hall in Laconia. DeSantis addressed Donald Trump's idea to build a new FBI headquarters in DC:

"NO! That's part of the problem with the FBI. They've become overrun with DC politics — you need to take it out of DC. That's how you drain the swamp."

One New Hampshire voter who attended a town hall yesterday tweeted out why she's voting for DeSantis.

"As a lifelong Independent, I don't always vote in primaries. After meeting Ron DeSantistoday and learning his stance AGAINST Red Flag Laws, I'll be voting in the next one, and my vote will be for DeSantis."

Throughout the day, DeSantis spoke with WMUR's Ross Ketche and the Union Leader newspaper. In the WMUR interview, he talked about how the border crisis impacts New Hampshire:

"Drugs are pouring in, tens of thousands of people. Not just at the border, New Hampshire families have had to deal with the fentanyl scourge, just like families in Florida have had to deal with."
