Outside of Donald Trump, no Republican gives Democrats more nightmares about 2024 than Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Now, DeSantis just gave Democrats some more bad news.
That’s because Ron DeSantis spoke one truth that has every Democrat seeing red.
Governor DeSantis signed legislation to ban biological males from playing girls sports in Florida high school and colleges.
“In Florida, girls are going to play girls sports and boys are going to play boys sports,” DeSantis explained at a bill signing event.
Democrats scream that this is a culture war wedge issue. But the ferocity of their attacks on the legislation can’t mask the fact that public polling data shows a majority of Americans support banning biological males from playing girls sports.
Today @GovRonDesantis signed a law to protect women's sports–ensuring female athletes can compete on a level playing field. Thank you for protecting scholarships and opportunities for women and girls for years to come. https://t.co/cJnx4efDTd

Florida State Senator Kelli Stargel demonstrated why bills protecting women’s sports are popular, explaining they were a matter of simple fairness.
“It’s not meant to be hurtful. It’s not meant to be discriminating. It’s not meant to attack any group,” Stargel stated. “This is not about that. This is about sports and having competitive advantage and having the ability to compete,” she said, adding that the measure is meant to aid women, giving them the opportunity “to participate, to get scholarships, to excel with other women of like strength and capability.”
This is another legislative win for Governor DeSantis who is building a national profile as a popular swing state governor who can advance the Trump agenda while appealing to a broad audience.
In recent weeks Governor DeSantis signed bills banning vaccine passports, cracking down on rioters, and enacting new election integrity measures, as well as a law making it illegal for Big Tech to censor political candidates in Florida.
If Donald Trump does not run for President in 2024 then Ron DeSantis will be one of the top contenders for the GOP nomination.
And DeSantis looks to be the one candidate Democrats and the media fear the most should he enter the Presidential field.
